Mary Roosevelt lost her beloved husband of 25 years, James Roosevelt, the eldest son of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, in 1991. In 1992, Jim Doti, president of Chapman College (later University), and the Chapman board renamed Founder’s Hall the James and Mary Roosevelt Hall. Mary, still grieving, was asked for a photo of the couple to create a portrait to hang in the hall’s lobby. She has always wished she had given the school another photo. A new photo now hangs in Roosevelt Hall, thanks to Women of Chapman Past President Kathy Hamilton, who asked Mary for a photo she preferred and had it created. The portrait, along with important memorabilia that Mary gave the school of James’ service in the Marine Corps as one of Carlson’s Raiders and as a U.S. Congressman, completes the focus on one of America’s heroes.

SHOW HOW THAT TRANSLATES IN TODAY’S HOMES.” - CAROL LEE KITCHEN Whether you’re cooking for family or catering for a crowd, a spacious and fashionable kitchen with plenty of storage and seating is essential. Oversized islands add a feeling of casual elegance to entertaining, inviting guests — whether it’s your kid’s soccer team or chairwoman of your favorite charity — to feel a welcome abundance. A large, open kitchen with high end appliances also adds tremendous value to your home. When you are ready to sell, upgrading the kitchen can increase the listing’s value and appeal. And it doesn’t have to be expensive to be on trend: quartz is replacing marble and granite as a durable and attractive counter choice, and there are many reasonable semi-custom cabinet options to make your kitchen stand out.

OPEN HOUSE

(CON TI N U ED)

WALK IN CLOSETS Binge-watching “Bonkers Closets” may lead to closet envy, but there are important takeaways. First of all, organizing closets by color and function can transform this space into a haven of order and relaxation. Following the Kardashian’s lead, you can add seating or an exercise area to your closet, creating an ideal space for an early morning yoga practice, or other indoor routine. Upgrading closets with mirrors, closed cabinet spaces, jewelry storage, and even equipment or a TV is another way to add value and enjoyment to your home, and many buyers desire walk-in closets to amply store their beautiful belongings. More and more people are adding a washer and dryer to their closet area, even if it’s a smaller secondary one. CRAFT ROOM Taking up knitting for your grandchild or niece? Need an organized area for wrapping gifts or creating a beautiful scrapbook? Cultivating a separate area of your home for creative pursuits is a wonderful way to ensure you have the time and space to pursue your passions. Rather than borrowing glue from your child or your neighbor’s child or running to the store last minute only to return with undecorated offerings, you can show up feeling prepared, relaxed and generous. Also, dedicating a room to your hobbies or artistic side offers an invitation to your muse. MASTER BATHROOM  Whether your day is filled with work stress or carpool runs, there is nothing like closing the door to your own private spa. A well-appointed master bath can unlock serenity and bliss in perfect privacy. Steam and rain showers are popular upgrades to the bathroom, as are candles, scents and hot yoga areas. Space permitting, separate his and hers bathrooms are gaining attention in the luxury market. And of course, ocean views from an elegant soaking tub never fail to attract buyers looking for a true retreat.  RAISED ORGANIC EARTH GARDEN Building a small organic garden offers plentiful fruits and veggies, flowers, and fun. Gardening is good for the soul, and medical research supports it too. It turns out that gardening increases Vitamin D exposure, boosts moods, and decreases the risk of dementia. As an added bonus, planting a garden combats loneliness (talking to plants provides good company?). Whatever your motives, planting and tilling the soil is beneficial and can add color and interest to the exterior of your home. Guests will admire your efforts while dining on home-grown greens and other delights. Designing your outdoor dining and entertainment areas with care is a great benefit of Southern California indoor/outdoor living. Outdoor grills, pools, and yes, gardens, enhance any party, as well as attract buyers from around the world looking to bask in year-round sunshine.

On May 8, 1914, the U.S. Congress passed a law designating the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day and requesting a proclamation. The next day, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation declaring the first national Mother's Day. Many countries around the world than followed with this American tradition. 24

But, rest assured, wherever this amazing woman is, her heart is with her kids. “One thing that really makes me proud. If I were my kids age, I’d want them to be my friend,” she says. That clearly sums up this mother’s heart.

CHEF J E S S I CA R OY

PASSION FOR HIGH QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE ORIGINALLY FROM HUNTINGTON BEACH, YOUNG CHEF JESSICA ROY’S PASSION FOR FOOD STARTED WHILE COOKING UP A STORM IN THE KITCHEN WITH HER MOTHER PREPARING LAVISH DINNERS FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS. Driven by a desire for learning, high quality and performance, Chef Roy started her career with Fairmont Hotels and Resorts. Later, she transitioned into a one-of-a-kind restaurant–Alinea Kitchen Table in Chicago. Alinea Kitchen is directed by restaurateur Grant Achatz, often identified as one of the leaders in molecular gastronomy or progressive cuisine. With Alinea, Chef Roy had the unique opportunity to travel to Spain to be part of the filming of Season 2 of the Netflix Series, “Chef’s Table.” 32

A really good piece of pie makes everything a little bit better.

THE ALINEA OPPORTUNITY WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT CHEF ROY’S PARTICIPATION IN THE TNT COOKING COMPETITION, “ON THE MENU,” WHERE SHE WON $25,000 FOR THE CREATION OF A SIGNATURE PIZZA NAMED “CALIFORNIA SEOUL.” That pizza went on the nationwide menu of California Pizza Kitchen. It was this new cash injection that helped our young chef move to Chicago to pursue her dream. Chef Roy has always been an admirer of Heston Blumenthal and his experimental cuisine. She is driven by the science and innovative techniques involved in the process of cooking. “To me it is intellectual cooking, and I find it fascinating. I have discovered that the more I know about why something happens, the better the food will come out. I am really into details, thinking about process and constantly questioning everything,” said Chef Roy. Today, we can enjoy her interpretative local cuisine at the Current Coastal Cuisine Restaurant at the Renaissance Newport

At the restaurant, guests will be able to try the ultimate SoCal fish taco, lobster beignets, seasonal flatbreads, farm fresh salads and many other Current Coastal Cuisine signatures. For this Mother’s Day brunch, Chef Roy’s recommendations are centered around two dishes. They are a play of ham and eggs sitting on a thick slice of La Brea Bakery brioche, topped with gruyere cheese, grilled asparagus, sunny-side-up egg, shaved iberico ham, and cured cherry tomatoes as well as multi-grain quinoa pancakes with strawberries, pistachios and ricotta cheese. These two brunch items pair perfectly with a hand-crafted cocktail of muddled strawberries, St. Germain liqueur, vodka, lemon juice, and rosemary.

Rancho la Puerta Spa

ORIGINATING IN 1940 BY EDMOND AND DEBORAH SZEKELY AS A FITNESS RESORT AND SPA, RANCHO LA PUERTA HAS ALWAYS BEEN AT ITS SAME LOCATION, AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN FAMILY OWNED. In fact, Deborah, now in her nineties, still comes to the ranch each week to meet with guests and recall stories of the ranch throughout the decades of its existence. Her love for her husband, affectionately know as “the professor,” is evident each time she mentions him in her tales. Together, they started what was once considered to be a cult, but now is today one of the leading health and wellness resorts in the world. Located just across the Tecate border, an hour from San Diego, Rancho La Puerta was designed as a one-week experience. The ranch becomes a place where digital devices are frowned upon and comradery with fellow guests is encouraged. Meal times are all in a shared dining facility where guests get to know one another by sitting together and where each meal has been portion controlled and is mostly vegetarian. The ranch itself is, for first-time guests, overwhelming in size and realizing the distance between places can be daunting, but after a few days of constant walking, one comes to appreciate the beautiful surroundings.

+ BALANCE The reason for coming to Rancho La Puerta is to find a way to balance and incorporate some of the ranch’s experiences into daily life. Classes offered vary each day and range from high intensity fitness to beginner’s classes. Yoga, Pilates, stretch, bar class, spin, aerobics, circuit training and many other fitness options are available. There are classes for your mind and spirit as well, including sound healing, meditation, various art classes, and more. The ranch also offers guided hikes for all levels throughout the week.

+ VARIETY The summer camp-like experience for adults is one that many enjoy with friends and families. It’s not uncommon to see couples, moth-

ers and daughters, or girlfriends at the ranch. Many times, guests plan their visits in large groups with friends they have made at the ranch. Men, women, couples and friends will all find a way to make the ranch beneficial to them, and the daily list of activities is so great that deciding what to do can be tough.
