We are so excited to share our second issue of TCL with you! It has often been said “Choose a job you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.” When I think about the hours spent compiling this edition this quote comes to mind, that’s not to say that it wasn’t hard work, but after 12 years I still LOVE what I do and am so thankful for it.
Working alongside lifelong friends is just a perk of the job (check out Johnna’s Page for some great insights to implement in 2021). Thank you to Kim Bearden for the amazing pictures this issue (I love that she photographed my wedding 14 years ago & now we get to work together on this project).
The Pearls of Wisdom series are interviews of Tri County residents from the greatest generation. My grandmother, Dorothy Lundgren, is among this generation, and while she had no interest in “being featured” she truly is the inspiration behind my desire to capture the infinite wisdom and authenticity this generation possesses. The countless hours spent visiting over a glass of tea at her kitchen table are some of my happiest moments. Whether its hearing stories of days gone by or just enjoying a hand of cards there really is no other place I would rather be. I know we can all learn from the insights shared from these sweet stories of a life well lived and I hope you enjoy them as much as I have. Look for more in 2022 and feel free to write us with article suggestions and people profiles that are near and dear to your heart.
