He came early and fast and caught us all by surprise, which added to the rawness of emotion that we have all been experiencing. For various reasons that add up to more than an editor’s letter, my daughter was in Atlanta when baby Teddy rocketed into the world and now he and his parents are staying with us a few weeks, filling our home and hearts with more joy than I’d ever thought possible.  I sit staring into his deep blue eyes for hours, rocking in the same rocking chair I lulled my own three babies to sleep in years ago. In fact, rather than pushing copy through to my

The First Rideshare for Teens in Atlanta


A BUCKHEAD MOM HAS REINVENTED THE TRADITIONAL CARPOOL SYSTEM IN ATLANTA. Autter, the first dependable, safe, personalized transportation rideshare to the metro area’s 1 million teens, has launched in Atlanta.  While there are other rideshares nationwide for kids, Autter is the first transportation company to serve the teen population, important because more than 60 percent of the nation’s 29 million teenagers participate in 10 or more hours of extracurricular activities a week according to the U.S. Census. “We get our laundry and groceries delivered, but we spend hours being frustrated in traffic trying to get our kids everywhere that they need to go,” says Kim Crocker, Autter’s founder and CEO. “I knew there had to be a better way and Autter was born from my own challenges maintaining my personal and work schedule while simultaneously getting my teen daughter to her myriad sports, school and social commitments on time.” Busy Atlanta parents report a high rate of difficulty getting their middle and high school aged children back and forth to practices, school, rehearsals, games and social activities. Autter features easy-to-use, innovative mobile technology with the ability for

FAIRMONT

CHATEAU LAKE LOUISE IN BANFF A FEW MONTHS AGO, I WAS INTRODUCED TO SEEDLIP. In my pursuit of non-alcoholic cocktails to add polish to my near perfect day on the slopes I pored over a menu of non-alcoholic cocktails providing a tempting list of layers of flavors, reminiscent of classic cocktails. I chose Seedlip Garden, and Ginger Tree tonic and added juniper berries and grapefruit peel as my garnish. Cheers To Us! Seedlip is the world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirit. Blended and bottled in England, Seedlip has created a  maceration, copper
