Brooke Notes: The Publisher’s Perspective


We’re thrilled to bring you our Fall 2023 Home Issue! 

From windows to countertops to flooring – we’ve covered it all in the upcoming pages. I’m a big believer in spending lots of time and energy making your house a home. It’s our safe space and where we make so many memories. It’s a place where we breathe easier the second we walk in the door. The cliché quotes “home sweet home” or “there’s no place like home” are said so often for a reason! 

I’ve spent the last 12 months slowly but surely decorating my bedroom. From painting and picking out furniture to window treatments, artwork and accessories. Yesterday, we went to a couple of local antique shops, and I found a perfect, unique accessory for one of our nightstands. Spending time intentionally choosing pieces that have meaning to you is my favorite way to create cozy spaces in my home. We’re so lucky to have so many amazing home-focused businesses in our community. You can learn more about several of them in our October issue as well as in our sister magazine, Forsyth Woman

“Home sweet home. This is the place to find happiness. If one doesn’t find it here, one doesn’t find it anywhere.” – M. K. Soni

Speaking of home, we’re featuring the beautiful Allonda Hawkins on our cover this month! Allonda is a well respected realtor in our community, and it’s an honor to work with her. I have to share her value statement because it perfectly describes her shining character: “Community over commission, relationships over revenue, people over profit, integrity over income.” Read all about Allonda and the Hawkins Group.
