Letter from the Editor, Haymarket and Gainesville Lifestyle Magazines, July 2019

I hope you’re having a wonderful summer. Mine’s been great so far, filled with rugby matches and road trips to their far-flung locations. I like this time of year; I get to see my son play and I get to discover the towns and cities he’s playing in. He runs up and down the pitch in spectacular physical condition, and I eat my way through Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, the City of Philadelphia and, most recently, Atlantic City. Please, no one talk to me about bathing suit season!

When my sons were younger, though, we kept our road trips and summer excursions closer to home. I think that’s why I absolutely love, and hope you’ll love, the features in this issue’s special Summer Fun section. From Christine Craddock’s heartwarming piece on family camping trips, to a roundup of the food trucks delivering summer’s favorite dishes, to Frannie Barnes’ “Summer of LOVE” recap of her family’s road trips to several of the LOVE signs across our region, each reminds me of things we did when my boys were younger and inspires me to suggest we do them now. (They’re 27 and 20, so I’m unsure they’ll want to explore LOVE signs with me, but you can bet I’m going to ask!)

Happy reading, happy summer. Stay safe, wear sunscreen, and enjoy!
