October Editor's Letter
Back in high school, we students had a teacher we were sure never really read our essays. To test our theory, I turned in a paper in which midway through I wrote, “Are you really reading this, [teacher’s name]?” When the paper was returned to me, next to my grade was a note assuring me that the paper had been read.
When I write about my job, I typically write about what I love about working with the magazines. But this month as I began to write, “One thing I love about my job…”, I was reminded of that incident in high school. I smiled as I recognized I’m not just writing good things because I think my boss is reading them. So…one thing I really do love about my job is the people I’ve met and get to work with on a daily basis. A special group I enjoy is our local freelance writers. We have such strong people from all walks of life and all over the metro who work hard to bring you exciting and relevant info each month. This month, I’m thrilled to introduce a few new columns. Amy Hundley has been writing the past few months on healthy eats for kids, and this month you’ll find a new date night column, tips on taking Insta-worthy photos and a MoJo (more joy) for Moms column. I think you’ll love them all as much as I do!
Fall is in full swing, and that means there is so much to do! Here’s hoping the weather cooperates…I have memories of visiting a pumpkin patch in the snow, and of course KC has had years when it’s over 90 in the fall. No matter what the weather, our Pumpkin Patch Guide, both here and online, will help you plan the perfect fall outing for your family.
Happy fall, y’all!
