Letter From The Publisher
Thank you for picking up the first issue of our seventh year of Heartland LIVING. You are the reason we continue to raise the bar and bring a fresh look to Your Lifestyle Community Magazine. I am in love with this issue and the variety of editorial content we’ve packed into it for you. It is not only informational but my photography team really outdid themselves. I hope you feel the same way, I think there is something for every walk of life.
Over the years we have come across some really amazing people
and stories within the 7 counties and abroad and it makes me so proud. Sometimes it’s easy to lose faith in humanity with all the negativity in the news and on social media but honestly if you look for good in people, they are all around you. That is what my team strives to do. Bring you the best of what your communities in the Heartland have to offer. And not just in our editorial content, but in my team members and advertisers as well.
This is a beautiful season for the agriculture community. New crops are prospering and ready for harvest, baby calves are being born and with the warmer weather approaching, a whole new crop of fruits and vegetables are growing for spring harvest. I heard the other day there was a resurgence of interest from young people wanting a career in agriculture. This is so promising for our community as I believe people are focusing more on local grown products and becoming aware of where our food comes from. We do our best to keep you informed about local farmers and ranchers that are doing their job to keep things ‘Fresh from Florida’.
Speaking of spring, this is a wonderful me to take advantage of all that’s happening in the Heartland. You will see we made a change to our calendar of events so we can bring you a more comprehensive list of things to do with your family and friends. It’s nice to see familiar faces at some of the events we cover and we encourage you to submit your special event for our listing.
I would like to invite you all to keep sharing your thoughts with me on what you would like to see in the upcoming issues as well as your thoughts on past stories we have covered. After all, we strive to bring you what you want to see and read. I am looking forward to an amazing 7th year with my team as we explore the Heartland to find the perfect hidden gems that will encourage love, personal growth and humility within us all.
