This quarterly print (and digital) publication is aspirational in nature while prompting people to get out today and make that move. We tell the story of how good life can be. In each issue, we include some of the following departments. We feature interesting stories of people who have reinvented themselves in retirement, those that are concentrating on leaving a legacy, and those with unique hobbies or interests. We showcase new home trends with high-end kitchens, baths, and outdoor living. Everyone has at least one interesting story to tell, and we’d love to help you tell it.
