Letter From The Editor – March 2020

Welcome to NFD and to March!  One step closer to spring!   The one thing that is certain about March, it can be unpredictable, at least with the weather. Living in the Nashville suburbs,  it’s always a guessing game as to what March is going to look like. Just like last year, we got very little snow this season.  Always a little disappointing to those of us who like the white, fluffy stuff, but we have gotten it before in March – and rarely in April – so I’m not giving up, though I really am looking forward to spring.  The stores in Nashville are already putting out the pastels, bunnies, and greenery. 

 

As we start another month and get closer to spring, NFD will be both predictable yet unpredictable- just like this crazy month of March!  We will have plenty of our great usual features this month including food, good health, inspiration and motivation, several amazing Untold feature stories and maybe a few unexpected surprises along the way.  Don’t forget to wear your green on the 17th for St. Patty’s Day for good luck!  We hope you will enjoy all the articles planned for the unpredictable and transitional month of March.

 

With winter still lingering, but with the promise of spring on the way, I leave you with this quote from Charles Dickens.  Here’s to the “anything goes” month of March!
