Ahhh, smell the pumpkin spice aroma as you enter just about anywhere this month! If it can be flavored or scented this time of year, rest assured it will involve pumpkin or spice or both! I love fall; who doesn’t? Even a summer baby like myself revels in this glorious fall weather! No doubt you are busy as can be with fall activities and thoughts of approaching holidays, but take the time to slow down and breathe in all the goodness this season offers. As my time as publisher of Forsyth Family Magazine is winding down, I’m thinking about the seasons of my life, and I’m grateful! I’m grateful for what has been and what is to come!
I want to wish my brother-in-law, Terry Bralley a very happy 70th birthday! We are blessed to have you in our family. You make us laugh, and there is nothing better than hearing you and your baby brother, Tim, my husband, reminisce and tell stories of you guys growing up. Your mom, Delphia Bralley, aka Nanny was so proud of you both and taught me so much by the example she lived! We look forward to celebrating with you this month. And, while I’m talking about celebrating, Happy Anniversary to my husband! Thirty-four years and counting! Thank you for being the amazing rock you are in our lives!
Triple Threat School of Dance, Music & Acting is our cover this month. Holly and her team create a special environment for their students. The Winston-Salem location has been around for 22 years. Both my daughters attended their first year of opening and danced there until they graduated from high-school. It holds a special place in my heart with so many wonderful memories for our family watching them dance from young girls to young adults!
October is our annual fall home issue, so be sure to check it out for all things home related. Homes are our special place of respite. I think Covid taught us that lesson even more if we didn’t already know it.
