My high school aged son is reading The Alchemist as we go to press, so a quote by Paulo Coelho, seems appropriate and timely. The June 2023 issue has been particularly poignant to create because it will be my last to oversee as Publisher. When I started Cross Timbers Lifestyle over six years ago, the vision was simple - “Inspiring, Educating & Connecting Southern Denton County.” Every story and partnership was viewed through this lens. I am incredibly proud of the work we have accomplished together and cannot imagine life without the rich friendships that have developed these last years. I am blessed beyond measure with a husband and family, who have supported me along the way as I pursued my dreams even when it meant deadlines and commitments all over our lovely community.
Starting this publication is one of the proudest achievements in my life and while it’s hard to say goodbye in some ways – in other ways it’s simple. Next month you will meet the delightful Rachael Fenton, who is taking over as Publisher. She and I have become fast friends and I cannot wait to see where she takes us next. Her vision and passion for the community, non-profits, the arts and local businesses is incredible. Thank you to this wonderful community for embracing me and this beautiful publication over the years. I’ll be seeing you all around town!
