April 2017 Lifestyle Letter

Growing up, my favorite assignments in school were reports.  From a young age I loved the research, collecting of photos and presenting my discoveries in a nicely bound, written form for my teacher and classmates.  Destiny it seems…several decades later, here I am, able to do what I have always enjoyed… as a career!  The very best part, is that every assignment is about or for the most wonderful community of Carlsbad, CA.  I am blessed to be a part of a magazine whose focus is hyper-local and not spread out over many communities.  Carlsbad Lifestyle is able to maintain a kinship with our community and couple our content with you, our readers, because we serve only you.  I look forward to continuing to share the stories about people, events and businesses that make Carlsbad such a great place to live, work and play.  I have an endless supply of interesting, educational and fun input for many years to come!

In the April issue, we begin with a gorgeous presentation of our unique State Street Farmers’ Market.  Unlike most farmers markets, Carlsbad’s is supplied by many of our local vendors, from carrots to cookie dough, Carlsbad’s entreprenuers provide us with a plethora of wonderful goodies every week.  Get down to State Street on Wednesday afternoon.  I promise you will not be disappointed.   In the next few pages we present a secret hiking getaway…lake and all, right within our city limits, followed by a look at a local, state of the art, workspace venue.  These stories represent the incredbly broad range of business interests, recreational opportunity and the beautiful diversity of citizens within our eclectic community….part village, part cutting edge commercial/industrial, part tourist destination.  No wonder everyone is so nice!

Greater than each individual story is the collective tale of how we as Carlsbadians unite to build and enjoy a myriad of community opportunities, experiences and support.  It is my honor and pleasure to be able to bring these and many more stories to your homes each month.   I am always happy to hear from my readers.  Please feel free to send us a note or story ideas! Carlsbad Lifestyle is for you.
