Happy July 4th Carlsbad!

Where will you wave your flag on the fourth? Will you join your neighbors for a backyard BBQ pool party? Enjoy one of our many beautiful beaches along the coast? Maybe head over towards the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort or Legoland to see the skies come alive with fireworks? Wherever you go remember to pack the sunscreen, something sparkling and be safe.

The kids are out of school so we’re all looking for fun ways to celebrate the Dog Days of Summer. You’re sure to find me and my husband Nick and our kids, Georgia Rose & Troy, Friday nights at the TGIF Concerts in Park. Anything to let them run some energy out while letting the parents enjoy some live music while catching up with friends, (and the entire community) sounds good to me. After filling up on fair food we’re excited about cheering on the horses at the track on Opening Day. We’ll also be soaking up the sun and enjoying some time out on our paddle board at the Agua Hedionda Lagoon.

We’ve put together a July issue celebrating summer. We love entertaining outdoors and we found some easy tips and inspiration to freshen it up. We take you inside and up-close a local music gem…our very own Museum of Making Music and even introduce you to fun new way to enjoy the game of tennis with the SD Aviators. It’s complete with comedians providing commentary and a live DJ. We also enjoy sharing some photos from some amazing events in our community from one benefiting graduating Carlsbad High School students and another with cuteness overload, as well as spectacular talent, from both the kids and adult performers, that shined at the Carlsbad Dance Centre Recital.

We love doing this magazine and we hope to continue to bring stories that are reflective of this community and share what is important to you. If you ever want to share an upcoming event in our calendar, recent event photos/news in our “Around Town” or “Good Times”, or want to let us know of a place or person we should spotlight…please feel free to reach out and email me. Let us tell your story!

Have a safe and celebratory month.

Keep in touch,
