Family first!

Hello, spring!
It’s that time of year again – the outdoors begins to come alive, the end of the school year is on the horizon and the world just seems to get a little sunnier. Soon we will be spending much more time with family as summer rolls around.
To celebrate, we’ve centered this issue of Chicz on family. There are articles on feeding your family, making time for young ones by putting your phone away as well as games and fun to keep the whole family entertained, farmers markets, making meals fun, crafts to keep your kids occupied and even an article by single chic Annie Harman on enjoying weddings solo.
How about ideas on creating a fairy garden, do-it-yourself backyard ideas and gardening tips.
We also have an article from a new contributor, Denise Drown, focusing on fashion.
Round that all off with our favorite books, Al Edenloff’s ideas on enjoying wine with your­­ barbecue, our ever-popoular Real Chicz of Douglas County, and 10 uses for mayonnaise and we’ve got you covered!
There’s something for everyone in this May/June issue of Chicz, so sit back and enjoy!

~Lori Mork, Chicz editor

    I love your magazine!! I just received the Holiday 2012 magazine today and read it cover to cover! Wish I had not missed the first edition. I look forward to more Chicz in the future!!

    Where can you pick up the magazine? The map won’t load on my phone and I don’t have access to a computer. I’m usually in the northern Alexandria and Brandon areas

We have newsstands set up all over Alexandria including Elden’s and Pete’s, both Caribou Coffee locations, both of the medical clinics and the hospital, several dental clinics and banks, Alexandria YMCA, Arrowwood gift shop, Carlos Creek Winery, and several downtown Alexandria boutiques.

    I have tried the Pumpkin crunch cake and enjoyed it much, so quick to do.

    I also tried the pumpkin pie and it is great especially the topping. All your articles are timely and useful as well as interesting. Phyllis Tucker, Alex
