We are in unprecedented
times, when the principles
of our Declaration of
Independence and Constitution are really being tested. It’s also a time when the fruit of love, joy and peace are desperately needed.
For months now, we’ve consciously worked to create a magazine that’s enjoyable, entertaining and calming for our readers; one that’s
representative of the greater community that we live in and love so much.
In this issue you’ll read about the classic Elco wooden boat, a personal favorite; an update on Carolina Ocean Studies and the great
progress they’ve made; the amazing
woman behind the Hieronymus
Brothers; an incredible new home on
Harbor Island; and recipes to enjoy
veggies straight from the garden, a
unique movement called Cook it
Forward and more.
Do enjoy our high month of sum-mer
as we celebrate the birth of our
nation 244 years ago along with the
freedoms that we hold so dear.
Peace and blessings,
We are excited
to share our
Stop by and
enjoy the July

finds me at a unique place. I’ll keep you posted.
