What a beautiful time of year. Fall brings on a sense of renewal and the landscape of colorful leaves, crisp air and cooler temps create a back drop for all things autumn. The leaves aren’t the only things changing around the Wilson Living office. You will notice two new faces this issue. Wilson County resident, Tomi Wiley, lends her strong writing chops and shows us her piece of the good life. We are proud to welcome Tomi, and know you will love reading her features in Wilson Living. We also welcome Diana Haines, a CASA volunteer and writer at heart, who shares how CASA is paying it forward.
If you are looking for decorating tips, you won’t want to miss this issue’s Home and Garden section. B.J. and Christy Busby of Gladeville opened up their breathtaking home for our cameras but trust me, the pictures don’t do it justice.
With the erratic weather in Middle Tennessee, who knows what to wear! You may need a coat one day and a tank top the next. Style and Trends Editor, Erin Brown shows us the one item we all need in our closet this fall. Don’t miss Erin’s Q&A this issue. She answers a question all parents of girls want to know, “What’s the appropriate age to start wearing makeup?”
While there’s a lot of fun stuff going on this issue, we will turn our attention to something very serious. In our Health and Well- Being section we introduce readers to two cancer survivors. You will be inspired and humbled by their heroic stories.
And we are excited about a new project we are involved in. We’ve decided to hold a Wilson Living Holiday Expo this November. The Holiday Expo will include all sorts of food, entertainment and fun for the whole family. Scheduled to appear are the actors and musicians of The Millworks Theatre who will be performing holiday musical entertainment free to all those in attendance. And vendors of all types will be present to kick off the holiday shopping season right in our own backyard! And of course, Santa will be there! So, be on the look out for more details in the Wilson Post as we begin planning our event.
Oh and one more thing, if you can’t get enough Wilson Living. Check out our new weekly column in the Wednesday edition of the Wilson Post, Wilson Living Today, for updates on what we’re working on. As always, we would like to thank all of our wonderful readers! We have been overwhelmed by all of the phone calls, emails and “shout outs!” Keep ‘em coming!
Keep Reading, Angel Kane and Becky Andrews
Notes From The County
Got it today & it is awesome !! Great job. I am never disappointed. Pamela Ashbridge Reeder
Picked up my first copy (ever) today…Wonderful mag! Enjoyed the article on the Wilson County Fair. This is a first class publication, I will be looking forward to future issues! Pat Scales
We got back from vacation on Saturday evening–and as I was going through the week’s mail, I saw the magazine and found myself reading it at midnight! I couldn’t help myself!!! All the Best Wendi Warren
I want to commend you on the incredible job that you’re doing with the magazine. I have been EXTREMELY impressed ever since I received the very first issue with the quality of the articles and the photographs. There are very few magazines that I just have to drop everything to sit down and immediately read when I first get my hands on it, but Wilson Living has that effect
on me. You are doing a great service for Wilson County, and I wish you much success for years to come! We are very thankful to be advertisers in your beautiful magazine, and I hope we will have a long working relationship together in the future.
Thank you again for your conscientious work and the gift of your talents in producing Wilson Living.
Ramona Crutcher, Ramona & Co.
P.S. I also enjoy reading your humorous articles in the Wilson Post – I can often relate!
