Summer 2018 in one word: spontaneous. With all the new excitement coming through our city, it has become evident in every aspect of our work.
This issue has turned out to be one of my favorite issues to date. Meeting and interviewing so many incredible and talented people responsible for the revival of Kress on Dexter was a rewarding, personal experience.

Our holiday issue is always a favorite to put together. Some of our favorite decorators, designers and caterers share photos to inspire the entertainer this season. Flipping through the next few pages, you will find our gift guide with great products from several of our favorite local stores. Find the perfect gifts for your loved ones and if the hustle and bustle gets overwhelming, book an appointment for some yoga at Montgomery’s newest yoga studio, Bombshell Buddha.

We are happy to help the American Cancer Society reveal the esteemed 2017 Best Dressed Ball nominees.

Get to know them in our cover feature article and make plans to attend the Best Dressed Ball on October 28 at The Shoppes at EastChase.
With the summer in full swing, you might find yourself falling into monotony. While a typical routine can seem enough for you, do not fool yourself. Hopefully this issue will give you some opportunities to try new activities around the River Region. Be sure to check out our In Motion portion on Fly Aerial Studios. It is a great way to add some flair to your workout routine. Next, flip over to Reply Yes for some inspiration on all the hot sunglass trends. Immerse yourself in Montgomery’s nonprofit scene by learning about the Family Sunshine Center’s campaign, 100 Women Strong. The ambassadors of this campaign are giving their full support, energy, and resources to bringing a greater awareness to the Family Sunshine Center’s mission.
After three back-to-back issues, we are closing on the busiest time of the year for us and are very much looking forward to some down time before we welcome two new interns and crank up in full gear again. This issue might be one of my favorites because it is filled with so many things I love. Food trucks, fashion, amazing events, kayaking on the Coosa and Biscuits Baseball. While food trucks have been around for years, they haven’t been as prevalent in Montgomery but that is all about to change.
How exciting is our cover and feature story? Maxwell Air Force Base will host the most incredible air show commemorating the 70th anniversary of the U.S. Air Force along with the 100th anniversary of our country’s entry into WWI...not to mention that the Patrol de France hasn’t flown in the U.S. in 31 years! Don’t miss this free, family-friendly event on April 8 and 9.
