Dear BuckHaven, I USED TO BE A BIG FAN OF THE ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCEMENTS IN THE SUNDAY NEW YORK TIMES. Those pages were the icing on the tiered cake after reading every word of the Sunday Styles section. The fairytale stories of often unlikely and finally requited love in “Weddings/Celebrations” were often like Hallmark movie scripts.

longing. I mean who really cares about these real life love stories, except the bride and groom, bride and bride or groom and groom? I’ve been married 30 years. I had my fairytale story but come on, that was a long time ago.   Valentine’s Day can leave us feeling lonely or loved. Or, both.   I’m very fortunate that my husband and I can celebrate simply by having dinner together, toasting to our resilience, shared history and how we agree on important things, like going to bed early and staying in on Valentine’s Day. Take that, Hallmark!   This month on the 14th, I’ll actually be in Northern Michigan with my girlfriends on a snowshoeing and winery tour through the Leelanau Peninsula. My husband loves me so lets me go. That’s my kind of love story.   I hope the bungee jumpers make it to 30 years!

Unraveling Fiber Arts WITH THE CHATTAHOOCHEE HANDWEAVERS GUILD

FOUNDED IN 1955, THE CHATTAHOOCHEE HANDWEAVERS GUILD ALLOWS FIBER ENTHUSIASTS TO GATHER, EXCHANGE IDEAS, LEARN NEW TECHNIQUES THROUGH WORKSHOPS AND CLASSES, AND GET INSPIRED. Located in the North DeKalb Cultural Arts Center – the same building as Spruill Center for the Arts – the guild welcomes novices, experienced artists and anyone with a curiosity about the craft to explore its many expressions.

GIVING BACK

Sun-Sational HOW TWO BUCKHEAD MOMS ARE SPREADING THE SPIRIT OF JOY AND LOVE

ARTICLE MARIA SMITH PHOTOGRAPHY PROVIDED

SIMONA SPAGNOLI AND SARAH ASHER MET IN 2005 THE WAY MANY MOMS MEET…IN A CAR POOL. Both of them were transplants to Atlanta (from Rome and Florida, respectively) and were drawn to the warmth and joy emitting from the other. After years of playdates, yoga outings, and coffee chats, Simona and Sarah decided they needed to band together to spread their feelings of peace, love and compassion throughout Buckhead and beyond. So in 2016 they started Sun In My Soul, and begun to design clothing with inspirational messages. Sun in My Soul  has become a movement of positivity. In their first two years, they were able to reach thousands of people in Atlanta. They have built a tribe of fellow positivity seekers (called SOULdiers) to help spread the ideas of inner peace, self-love, and empowerment. 24

BuckHaven Lifestyle | February 2019


Simona and Sarah came up with the name Sun in My Soul because they believe happiness is a choice and not dependent on anyone else but yourself.

SIMONA SAYS, “HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE YOU MAKE IN THE MORNING AFTER WAKING UP. WHEN YOU HAVE SUN IN YOUR SOUL, YOU SEE BEAUTY EVERYWHERE; WHEN YOU HAVE SUN IN YOUR SOUL YOU CAN THEN SPREAD IT TO OTHERS. HOW CAN YOU SPREAD LOVE WITHOUT HAVING IT FIRST? YOU CANNOT POUR FROM AN EMPTY CUP.” A portion of the profits from each sale of Sun in My Soul merchandise goes to Do It For the Love foundation. This non-profit, started by Michael and Sara Franti, brings people with living with life-threatening illnesses, children with severe challenges and wounded veterans to live concerts.

Seasonal cocktails, handmade pasta, perfectly cooked steaks and fresh salads expertly prepared using the nest ingredients. For reservations call 404.844.4810 3500 PEACHTREE ROAD NE ATLANTA, GA 30326 (PHIPPS PLAZA)

Simona lived in Italy, France and Pittsburgh before making her home in Buckhead. She and Marco have three children. Sarah moved from Maitland, Fla.,  to Atlanta in 1993. She and  Lee  have two children.

ONE

OF

THOSE

RARE

SUNNY

AFTERNOONS

AFTER

CHRISTMAS, I SAT DAYDREAMING IN A COFFEE SHOP NEAR MY HOUSE AND FOUND DEB BOWMAN ON SPOTIFY. I had, of course, already listened to her music at the insistence of our friend, the late Don Thomas Hayes (God rest his sassy soul) and recently at Bread & Butterfly in Inman Park, where she played with a combo and lulled us all into a welcomed state of luxurious chill on a Friday night. Deb’s voice is creamy and smooth, but she’s as much vixen as angel. With impressive stage, film and television credits, she has been a fixture among Atlanta entertainers since moving here from New York. Whether belting out Broadway and big band ballads or softly seducing you with sultry standards, Deb’s style is all her own. She’s got a big voice and a powerful stage presence, all wrapped up in a pretty petite little package you’ll want to put in your pocket and pull out when you most need a boost.   That’s just what she did when I first met her at the bedside of our friend Don Thomas, the “Mayor of Virginia Highland.” He suffered a stroke and Deb led a small rag tag choir of some of his best and oldest friends as we gathered at Grady Hospital to serenade what was left of our friend. At that point, there was only the rise and fall of his chest that told us he was listening.  We did our best with one his favorites, Moon River, Deb singing sweetly and strong with tears pooling then falling.  She is a gift to anyone lucky enough to hear her perform. You can catch her Wednesdays at Atlas at the St. Regis Hotel, Fridays at Bread & Butterfly and at other choice Atlanta locations. Her “Big Love Band” includes musicians Arthur Turner, Ken Gregory, Craig Shawdaddy, and Jared Lanham. Bowman’s first solo album “Addicted to Love Songs,” made the 54th Grammy Ballot in four categories including Best Jazz Vocals & Best New Artist. Her newest project, “Fast Heart,” will release this year with original music. The album was recorded at the renowned Power Station in New York City. Deb began playing piano and singing in a Southern gospel church from an early age. With a bachelor of arts focus on classical theater and dance from the University of Alabama, she relocated to New York City in 1999 and began a professional career in entertainment. She has since performed worldwide in television, film, theater, cabaret shows and international cruises, ultimately relocating to Atlanta, where she's been embraced as one of our finest. A joyous love of music and theatrical arts is Deb’s own collective adventures through life, travel and relationships. Stage credits include Chicago, Cabaret, 42nd Street, The Little Mermaid, Oliver first national tour, Evita, Sweeney Todd and A Streetcar Named Desire. Bowman is represented by Atlanta Models & Talent with credits including: Ugly Betty Season IV, Being Mary Jane, The Haves & the Have Not’s, Its Complicated, Wall Street 2, and several national commercials.  Deb has worked alongside actors such as Meryl Streep, Steve Martin, Shia LaBeouf, James Franco, and Vanessa Williams.  She was awarded Best Actress in a Professional Play for 2015 Atlanta Region by Broadway World.  She won the 2014 RICE Award (Rising In Community Excellence) for Entertainment.  Deb  is also a two-time Suzi Bass Award nominee for Best Actress in a musi-

This is not the 30a you know and love from spring break. Seaside in the shoulder season promises all you love about the 30a community: restaurants galore, flat path biking to one of the state parks, long walks on the clean Gulf of Mexico beach, sunset drinks at Bud & Alley’s and a comfortable beach rental to call your own.

It’s a perfect perch for reading or a quiet conversation. Christie and her family have decorated the house with just a few beachy touches, but it’s not packed to the gills, allowing visitors to plop down beach bags, spread out a puzzle or roll out yoga mats for a stretch. The spacious house has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and a cool enclosed tower room for your Instagramming pleasure.  The beaches of picturesque 30a are an easy five-hour drive.

The Perfect Romantic (free) Getaway:

The Henderson Park Inn FROM LIFESTYLE PUBS, WITH LOVE

AS WE ALL KNOW, THERE’S NO SHORTAGE OF PLACES TO STAY ALONG THE GULF OF MEXICO IN FLORIDA. But even if you’ve been going to the Gulf Coast your whole life, you may not have experienced a place quite like this. A corner of heaven, the Henderson Park Inn provides the rare chance to truly relax. This intimate bed & breakfast, with just 36 rooms, is perched along the pristine white beaches and crystal-clear water of the Gulf of Mexico, offering authentic Southern hospitality, understated elegance, privacy, and exquisite local flavor at the award-winning, on-site restaurant, Beach Walk Café. Henderson Park Inn is a longtime favorite of visitors and locals looking for a quiet vacation or quick getaway. Blending modern luxury with coastal rustic charm, the Inn takes you back to another time. This getaway exudes tranquility hard to match and is miles away from the bustle of the Emerald Coast while still being centrally located near all the great things Destin has to offer. Each thoughtfully decorated suite is distinctive and features breathtaking views of the Gulf’s emerald green water. The attentive staff caters to your every need from the moment you enter. 32

BuckHaven Lifestyle | February 2019


Your room greets you with romantic music, a bottle of wine and two glasses, a vase of roses, as well as grapes and gourmet chocolates. No detail is overlooked. The 36 rooms are designed to make "staying in" completely acceptable, or if you want to explore the area, leave the car keys in your room and get around Scenic 98 on a pair of complimentary bikes--it's what the locals do. Grab your picnic lunch provided by the Inn and claim a spot for two on the beach nestled along the Henderson Beach State Preserve -- there’s ample room to find some seclusion. For total pampered privacy in your suite, think sumptuous bedding, a flat-screen TV, plus concierge service for any additional needs (or wants). Enjoy a romantic dinner without ever leaving the Henderson Park Inn. Dinner on the outdoor terrace at onsite Beach Walk Café is a must, as much for the atmosphere as for the farm-to-table menu, which changes seasonally. For pure privacy, have your concierge arrange a private dinner on the beach, pairing fresh caught seafood with glasses of bubbly. Looking for more activities than relaxing at the beach? The Inn’s guests have access to all the amenities next door at the Inn’s sister property, The Henderson, a Salamander Beach & Spa Resort. Amenities include a full-service spa, a fitness center, and two beautiful pools.  Iconic Gulf sunsets are best viewed from the hotel’s Tiki Bar, with your favorite glass of wine in hand and mingling with the other guests. Want to take your relationship to the next level? Henderson Park Inn has many different venues that make it an ideal spot for a honeymoon destination or a quaint vow renewal venue.  HendersonParkInn.com 877.631.9162
