Hi. I’m Linda Dohse and there are two things I’d like you to know about me: I love Linda Dohse (left) with her daugher, to write and I love to talk. Many people might Janessa Juarez. This picture was taken even venture to say I have “the gift of gab.” I shortly before Janessa gave birth to twin discovered my love of writing at a very young daughters, Aubrey and Eloise, in September. age, and as I got a bit older, also discovered how much I loved meeting new people. Writing was, and still is, a great way to express my feelings, and as I realized many years later – combining my love of meeting new people and sharing their stories was also something I really enjoyed. And if you ever ask me which I prefer more – writing or talking – it’s a close one, but the written word would almost always win out over the spoken one.

That’s because writing is my true passion, and my favorite articles to write are humaninterest stories - stories that tug at my heartstrings and make me realize that - in spite of all the negativity and disrespect in the world today - there are still a lot of great people out there. From writing about someone who “paid-it-forward,” a person who helped another in a time of need, or simply those who are living a life that is humble and kind - writing these types of articles warms my heart and strengthens my soul in such a profound way. I have had the privilege to meet many truly wonderful people over the years, and being able to share their goodness in writing with others has been a true blessing. I give thanks for my given gift to write, and bless these humble and giving people I have met and been fortunate enough to write about. To all of you – I thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your stories of grace and humility with me. And to those I have yet to meet, I am truly looking forward to our paths crossing in the future and being able to share your goodness with others.

Founded in 1999, The Harpeth River Watershed Association is a not-for-profit, science-based, conservation organization dedicated to the restoration and protection of the State Scenic Harpeth River and clean water in Tennessee. One of the most ecologically, culturally, historically, and recreationally significant rivers in Tennessee, the 125 mile-long river and over 1,000 miles of tributaries flow through both rural landscapes and rapidly developing areas of the greater Nashville region.

A

mong all holiday gatherings, there is one  thing that is necessary: dessert! It's the perfect time of year to give in to our sweet

desires. Are you hosting a holiday dinner party? Inviting the family over for Christmas dinner? What about desserts and cocktails with close friends? Treat (pun intended) your guests to a dessert display that is as beautiful as it is delicious. From weddings to birthday parties, dessert tables are a hot trend that can  elevate any  event.  The use of rustic and natural elements are popular for their versatility and ease of coordinating. Think about adding a "naked cake", like the one shown from Pum's Sweets, wood dessert servers, fresh greenery and burlap fabric.

creating dessert experiences.

Franklin Lifestyle | December 2016


4 KEYS TO CREATING A STRESS-FREE DESSERT TABLE Incorporating nontraditional elements, such a a well-loved throw, can add personality and warmth.

1. CHOOSE A DISPLAY SPACE AND THEME. Any surface in the party location can work, whether it's  a traditional buffet or an  office desk. Think outside of a traditional table and try something like a small dresser or vanity.   Also the holidays are the perfect time to pull out those nice dishes and server  ware.  Try using other items in your home in a different way like the carved wood pedestal from  The Bird & The Bee  that is being used as a cake stand. Also, try to bring the outdoors in to add texture and freshness.

2. USE A VARIETY OF FABRICS. Think about all the fabric options in your home, besides a table cloth. Grab your throw from the sofa to drape over the base of your table or as a backdrop. Pull out the pretty cloth napkins you never use.  Get a few yards of beautiful fabric from a local fabric store to create a no-sew table cloth.

3. MIX HOMEMADE WITH BAKERY-BOUGHT ITEMS. This is a no judgment zone. There are delicious options at local bakeries and specialty

grocery stores. Arrange them on a nice platter, set it on a beautifully decorated table, and even the simplest desserts look divine. Focus your efforts on making one signature dessert you can perfect in time for your celebration.  If you're not a baker (or just don’t have the time), order desserts with seasonal flavors and colors from a local baker to fit your theme.

4. RELAX AND ENJOY. With so many items on your to-do list during the holidays, it is easy to become overwhelmed.  With a plan,  you can enjoy the process and add that sweet touch to your next holiday celebration. Once it's time for the event, relax! Your guests will enjoy the party more if you're enjoying it too. December 2016 | Franklin Lifestyle

to families and the children that make them special High Hopes Development Center embraces uniqueness and inspires growth for every child. ARTICLE LINDA DOHSE | PHOTOGRAPHY FRED BERGMAN

A

s the 1959 Frank Sinatra hit song High Hopes tells us, “Next time you’re found with your chin on the ground, there’s a lot to be learned, so look around.” This is perhaps a similar sentiment that five Middle Tennessee families felt when, together, they founded High Hopes Developmental Center in 1984. These families each had a child with a special need or chronic disease, and realized they spent a lot of time driving to multiple locations for their children to receive the therapy services they needed. Another realization 18

Franklin Lifestyle | December 2016

was that the inclusion model for education was not widely implemented. So together they created a goal to establish a place where their children's needs could be met, both academically and therapeutically, and where their children could be educated among their typically-developing peers. Little did they know at the time that this was history in the making. Fast forward to July 18, 2014 - a very special day for High Hopes as it celebrated its 30th anniversary in its first permanent home at 301 High Hopes Court in Franklin. High


Hopes Development Center Inclusive Preschool and Pediatric Therapy Clinic has been equipping children and youth to reach their potential for over 32 years by offering a specialized and focused approach to serving children with and without special needs through two integrated programs. The mission of High Hopes Development Center is to equip children, youth and their families with skills necessary to achieve success through education, therapeutic services and loving support. HIGH HOPES PRESCHOOL

The Preschool at High Hopes educates children ages six weeks to pre-kindergarten in a compassionate environment, with the children separated into eight age-specific care groups. “They provide inclusive education to children with and without special needs in a research-based, developmentally appropriate manner while maintaining a ratio of 60 percent children who are typically developing to 40 percent children with a diagnosed special need," says Cheryl Dean, public relations and marketing coordinator. "Needs range from developmental delays and behavior struggles to Down syndrome, autism and cerebral palsy. The belief is that inclusion allows all children to learn about diversity, acceptance and individuality.” HIGH HOPES PEDIATRIC THERAPY CLINIC

The High Hopes Pediatric Therapy Clinic provides caring therapeutic services to children and youth, birth through age 21, in an enjoyable, kid-friendly environment where therapy is both fun and rewarding. A staff of highly qualified pediatric therapists offers a multitude of services including physical, occupational, speech and feeding therapies. “With an average of over 14 years specialized pediatric experience among them, CONTINUED >

these therapists are trained to evaluate the children and establish individualized goal-oriented therapy programs," says Dean. "Or, they will work with a child’s existing Individualized Education Program and Individualized Family Service Program." As a non-profit entity, High Hopes hosts a number of high profile fundraising events. Its largest annual fundraiser, Hats Off to High Hopes, was held on November 13 at The Ryman Auditorium with Grammy award winner Tim Nichols performing and hosting.

“It’s very unnatural to parent your parent. It’s not a natural progression in life. We don’t feel like we’re here to tell our parents what to do. We can think they’re much better than they really are.”

“It’s very unnatural to parent your parent. It’s not a natural progression in life. We don’t feel like we’re here to tell our parents what to do. We can think they’re much better than they really are.” Somerby Franklin opens in the spring of 2017 at 870 Oak Meadow Dr. with 136 Independent Living apartments, 38 Assisted Living and 24 Memory Care residences. What sets Somerby apart from other senior living communities is that the Independent Living apartments have full kitchens and washer/dryers. There is a dedicated activity staff for all three living environments and both Assisted Living and Memory Care have around-the-clock nursing staff. Other amenities include a swimming pool, many dining options, housekeeping, theater room, salon and much more. It's also a pet-friendly community so residents are free to bring their four-legged companions with them. Somerby wants adult children with their own lives, families and careers to be able to remove their caregiver hat. Stephens says, “Families get to be families again. Daughters become daughters. Sons become sons. In a retirement community, they get the relationship back. Returning that quality of life is a

Holiday Shrub (non-alcoholic or cocktail versions) Provided by Matt and Ashlea Hogancamp of Herban Market INGREDIENTS (ALL AVAILABLE AT HERBAN MARKET)

• 1/4 cup blackberries • 1 tbsp finely diced ginger • 2-3 thick slices of lemon • 2 oz blackberry ginger balsamic vinegar  • 8 oz sparkling water INSTRUCTIONS

1. Combine blackberries, ginger and lemon into a glass container. 2. Add sparkling water. 3. Add balsamic vinegar. 4. Give the drink a taste - add any more of each ingredient, as desired. 5. If you want this to be a cocktail, you can add your spirit of choice. Vodka would pair well with these ingredients. 6. Enjoy.

Using all organic ingredients, this body scrub and bath time exfoliant will leave you feeling fresh and ready to host any and all holiday gatherings you have planned. Or simply enjoy a few quite moments at home.

Bath Time Exfoliant Provided by Matt and Ashlea Hogancamp of Herban Market

INGREDIENTS

• 1/2 c Organic Cane Sugar • 2 oz Honest Coffee Grounds • 2 tbsp Dried Lemon Peel (you can use fresh, but dried is recommended) • 1 oz Whole Organic Lavender Flower • 4 oz Don Carlo Olive Oil (or any other high quality olive oil) INSTRUCTIONS

1. Pour sugar into the bottom of a glass container. 2. Add coffee grounds and layer on top of the sugar. 3. Add lemon peel and layer on top of the sugar and coffee grounds. 4. Add lavender flowers on top. 5. Gently combine the lavender flowers. 6. Pour the olive oil over the top. 7. Give as a gift or enjoy for yourself! Using the purest ingredients, this scrub will not only leave your skin feeling great, but it will leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed. The sugar is a perfect exfoliator, along with the coffee grounds. The grounds also contain caffeic acid, which helps boost collagen production. The lemon peel contains citric and plant acids that work to cleanse, lighten and brighten the skin, remove dead skin and stimulate new skin growth. The lavender flowers smell fantastic and help you relax, and olive oil is packed with antioxidants (Vitamin E, polyphenols and phytosterols). Overall, you cannot go wrong with this scrub. It's recommended you prepare this scrub in a glass container, like a mason jar. Bonus: By reusing your coffee grounds, this scrub can be made with pure and recycled products. Herban Market is located at 3078 Maddux Way in Franklin. 32

Parting Thoughts

The Benefits of Honey WORDS SIDNEY LEO

Honey has been around for thousands of years and has been used in almost every culture around the world. Many people use it to sweeten food and beverages, but did you know honey is one of the top superfoods used to treat countless health conditions and boost overall health? Honey contains 18 amino acids, and it has antioxidant and antibacterial properties that help fend off harmful pathogens. It can also be used to treat a wide-range of aliments such as healing wounds and burns, athlete’s foot, sore throats and even a hangover. Local honey taken for two months before allergy season can actually lessen allergies by helping your body grow accustomed to the pollen and immunizing your body against them.

Honey is great for your skin Did you know that raw organic honey is great for your skin too? Honey has natural antibacterial properties, so it is an effective acne treatment option, and it is loaded with antioxidants and enzymes, so it helps boost your skin’s immunity and fights free radicals to help slow down aging. Honey is also very moisturizing and helps eliminate dead skin cells.  Try a honey mask with yogurt or fresh aloe for additional skin benefits. 42
