Notes From Home

The measure of achievement is not winning awards. It’s doing something that you appreciate, something you believe is worthwhile. — Julia Child

Y

ou’re so right, Julia. However, winning awards brings a great feeling of accomplishment too. And it’s especially rewarding if the awards come during your 15th year of publication. Hard to believe, but it’s been 15 years since the first issue of atHome published in the Fall of 2003. There have been changes over the years and this past couple of years has not been an exception. That’s what makes the awards all the sweeter. You’ve most likely noticed these changes and I want to acknowledge the lovely, talented women who have made a huge contribution to what has evolved into a magazine with renewed vibrancy. My thanks go out to Heidi Coryell Williams, Lina LeGare and Stephanie Burnette for their tremendous enthusiasm, enormous creative talents and stoic willingness to “get it done.” The numerous awards we received this year could not have been possible without them. It was especially gratifying because we had not entered atHome in competition for a few years. This year we received first place in the magazine division of the SC Press Association for one issue and second for an additional issue. We also received an ADDY award from the American Advertising Federation for one of our covers. Bravo and thank you to not only my amazing team of Heidi, Lina and Stephanie, but to each of our photographers, writers, sales reps and production staff who contribute their incredible talents to each and every issue we produce. Thanks too for our exceptionally loyal advertisers, some who have been with us on this journey for a number of years. Speaking of issues, this one is a stunner. It could possibly be our best one yet, although that’s how I tend to feel about each one of them. So without holding you up any further with my self-indulgent accolades for a successful awards season, go find your favorite article (or more likely articles!) and enjoy this Fall issue. We’ll be seeing you again for the Winter issue and starting our 16th year.
