Happy Father's Day!

June is celebration time at my house! We celebrate both my husband’s birthday and Father’s Day, as well as the freedom that the lack of school schedules gives us. I love this time of year! I love the balmy summer nights spent sipping a frosty drink, and I even love the sweltering summer days (all the better to stay at the pool). Summer, even in the South, is still my favorite season.

This month, we are introducing you to several men from our community who represent the “Real Men of Smyrna and Vinings”. They are present, loving fathers and husbands, devoted to their work and true assets to anyone who knows them. While we could have included thousands more, these men are a small example of all the wonderful men who live, work, and play in Smyrna and Vinings everyday.

As this is our men’s issue, we are giving the guys some things to talk about. From a review of the new Tesla, to tips in the art of grooming, to a story on stunning golf locations around the world, there is sure to be something to catch your fancy. We also have a personal look at Congressman David Scott. And be sure to read “Beer, Bourbon and Burgers” before you go to your next guys night out!

I am blessed to be married to an incredible man, who has fathered our four sweet kids. He is patient, compassionate, and is the kind of dad I always dreamed about for my children. Since Father’s Day is quickly approaching, I want to say thank you, Happy Birthday and Happy Father’s Day to Cedric Smith, my best friend. And Happy Father’s Day to all the great dads out there!

Since this issue is all about the guys, I asked one of our male writers to put together a Father’s Day Gift Guide in lieu of my “in the bag” products. He picked some awesome gifts! Check it out!

Until next month, I’ll see you at Tolleson Park pool or splurging on icees at RaceTrac.
