: k l a t e e f f co A Sit-Down Chat with MICHELE EDWARDS, Owner of Studio 73 Dance in Huntersville
Our First Cup
Every day is a NEW day to rise, seek opportunity, and be better than the day before. The studio is pushing through our 22nd season one step at a time. Our dancers have continued to show up each dance day to move and groove through activity to enhance our body, mind, and spirit. Through this pandemic I’ve learned there is opportunity in every obstacle. It’s through the challenge that opportunity is found; you simply have to be willing to learn through the mishaps and know that tomorrow will be a victory over the day before.

A Perfect Blend of Flavors
What’s brewing in the kitchen?
Faith, Family, and Gratitude
The key to a balanced life is prioritizing your desires and relationships. For me it’s ﬁrst and foremost my relationship with God through prayer and daily devotionals. My husband and our marriage come second to God with our emphasis placed on our relationship through HIM together. Our children and relationships with them are next where we encourage open dialogue and conversation. Daughter Finley is navigating through her senior year and pondering college decisions, and our son Easton is also in high school and stays busy with JV soccer. It’s important to ﬁnd time in each day to stop and talk with both of our kids.
L AK ENORMAN
Something new we’ve adopted in our family is ordering meals via Home Chef. The meal service allows us to select meal kits that are delivered weekly. Our selections are based on our schedules, so we can choose a quick 15-minute meal kit; or if we know we will have extra time to be in the kitchen together, we will select a more elaborate meal. The ingredients are fresh, cooking instructions are easy to follow, and it’s been an easy way for us to eat portioned meals that are healthy … not to mention fun quality mealtime together as a family.
I unwind and relax with a cup of coffee or a nice dinner with a glass of wine. I simply love a quiet room with low lighting and soft music. When it comes to food, I’m a protein and veggie gal! I love steak, potatoes, and green beans … apple cider vinegar is my go-to and I put it on just about everything.
"… and know that tomorrow will be a victory over the day before."
One for the Road
The beach is our family’s happy place. We have taken a few trips recently to Hilton Head, Charleston, and St. Simons Island, Georgia. We enjoyed a family Christmas trip to Disney World and felt completely safe throughout our entire time in Florida— with all of the safety and health protocols in place and properly followed. We had a great time and are looking forward to more travel very soon! w
