Some of you will remember the homes built in the 1960’s. Well this cottage/home had not been updated at all and still had dark paneling and avocado green carpeting until Sunset Construction transformed it. Scott Crandall with the help of his son, Adam, and wife, Bonnie, completely remodeled this Intermediate Lake cottage and added on a room with lots of windows on the lake side. It’s now an inviting cozy modern retreat. See the whole article in our current issue.

Eating well, exercising every day (even walking,) and taking good supplements like Vitamin C and D, zinc, echinacea, green tea,... will boost your immune system to help keep you healthy during the 19th version of Covid.

“Air Hug💕” We have a new word in our vocabulary. Here’s how it goes. Fresh air, 6 ft distance and a little exercise (in this case it was a hike to the hippie tree) with people you love...followed with a goodbye ‘air hug.’ We did not know what an “air hug” was before Covid19.

Our beautiful Spring issue is a wonderful resource. We hope everyone who is not working is staying home. Remember you are not stuck at home; you are safe at home. For those who are working in essential positions, we are most grateful for you and pray you stay healthy. We should all go outside and enjoy some fresh air and go for a walk every day if you are able (keeping clear of everyone, of course!) Our five county region is beautiful!

Fresh air, sunshine, a healthy dose of vitamin D after a hike on local trails and enjoying a beautiful shoreline view. Of course, staying healthy and respecting social distancing all afternoon.

We heard a comment from a truck driver delivering food to stores, and other semi drivers also deliver supplies to hospitals, auto parts to garages so cars can be fixed, and everything else. Truck drivers have very long days and almost no place to get a healthy hot meal. Semi Trucks do not fit through drive-thru lanes and those restaurants will not serve anyone who is not in a vehicle. No wonder they are not feeling appreciated at all.

We want to encourage restaurants to serve everyone who walks up to a drive through lane across the country. Semi drivers may need to use a restroom too. We are thankful for them and pray they stay safe and healthy and enjoy a hot meal every day.

The Spring Equinox is today March 19, 2020. The sun is directly above the equator. We were taught that day and night are equal on the vernal equinox although there are actually a couple additional minutes of day due to many factors including gravity. But rumor has it that this will be the earliest Spring in 124 years. Rumors are not always true, but sometimes they are.

Excellent play! It’s full of energy and passion for learning and discovery of the night sky. We loved it and highly recommend it. The performers were outstanding. Directed by Phil Murphy, this play has a wonderful cast. Written by Lauren Gunderson. Call the box office 231-947-2210 oldtownplayhouse.com
AS A DATE NIGHT SUGGESTION: It’s still a bit chilly for a picnic in March, so after work pick up your date and stop by a restaurant in TC or along your way to TC. Order dessert and plan to leave it in the car during the play. Then off to Old Town Playhouse and at 7:15ish head downstairs and order the special featured drink from April. She creates one for every Old Town Theater Main Stage performance. Relax in your very comfortable spacious seat and enjoy your cocktail (or wine, beer, pop, coffee, cocoa...) and enjoy the play. Later, share your delicious dessert over a terrific conversation about the play you just saw and remember to share stories you may have heard of past generations of grandma’s, and aunts, ...

While walking downtown Traverse City we noticed a window display. It got our vote for the best window display in the whole five counties this winter. Well done Liana’s; you caught our attention.

Discovered a wonderful second location for Landmark Books today. The First Ladies Cook Book has a recipe from Mrs. Lincoln. I wish I still had kids at home; I would send them on an adventure with one of the many books in the youth section. Landmarks Books is in Building 50, and now inside Wilson’s Antiques in Acme. Congratulations Landmark Books. Paul Stebleton, owner, writes our book review in every quarterly issue. www.landmarkbookstc.com

Don’t miss the Fall Fashion Section in Traverse Bay Family Lifestyle this season. Thank you Annie Hill from Cherry Hill Boutique and Jacob and Amelia from Liana’s for modeling your beautiful cozy Fall Fashions. Clearly wonderful for a morning like this heading to work and school and dinner later this evening. Both stores are located downtown Traverse City.
Where can I obtain copies of the Fall 2018 issue of the Traverse Bay Family Lifestyles. I reside in Traverse City
Please call me - the dates you have for our Frankfort August Art Fair are incorrect. Should be August 17, 4pm - 8pm and August 18, 10am - 4pm - You have the event listed as August 14 and 15. 231-352-7251
Love looking at the calendar of events in every quarterly issue of Traverse Bay Family Lifestyles. It’s easy to plan ahead in anticipation of family or friends visiting too. This saves us a lot of time and too many clicks on our cell phones to see what is going on in the whole five county area. Also, you have to try this recipe from Chef Andy Viren at Taproot Cider House in TC. It’s not difficult and we absolutely loved it. We are taking friends there this weekend.
Who can I get in touch with to find out about advertising costs?
In the Fall quarterly issue on page 16 - Acme Fall Festival. We'll be there tomorrow.
