I have CrossFit girlfriends, summer/lake girlfriends, church girlfriends, journalist girlfriends, neighborhood girlfriends and sister-in-law girlfriends. We have to all work hard to stay close. It’s not easy. And, when we meet after long stretches of time apart, I’m quickly reminded who I am with their laughter and listening. I tell my daughters (two AMAZING young women) not to expect to find everything they need in one person (boyfriend or girlfriend). But, some of my closest girlfriends sure come close to filling me right up to the brim. They make me feel like the best Sue.  That's my fabulous friend, Melissa in the photo. She's my pick for a girlfriend getaway to Hilton Head. Melissa is one of the warmest and most generous people in my life. We talk on the phone while we're working, driving or doing housework. She's the one who can bring me out of a funk and dredge up a laugh buried deep. I love her! In this women’s issue, I’m proud to introduce a handful of women from the

Atlantic Dunes by Davis Love III

WITHOUT MISSING A BEAT, MY SWEET FRIEND MELISSA INVITED OUR DAUGHTER TO LIVE WITH THEM FOR HER SENIOR YEAR WHEN WE UP AND MOVED TO ATLANTA. She didn't do it because we were friends. She did it for Jane. Melissa's sincere outpouring of generosity and hospitality runs deep. She validates me, encouraging me with her affirmations. She's a curious consumer of new music, smart design, elevated food and creative cocktails. I love her and she's my pick for a girls weekend in Hilton Head where she spent family holidays as a girl. This trip, however, will be a little different! Our home base: The Inn & Club at Harbour Town at The Sea Pines Resort. Grabbing complimentary cruisers, we will pack the baskets with refreshments and head to the beach, riding across the sandy shoreline, racing the waves up to The Quarterdeck to watch the sun set and have a huge salad.

SHE CONTINUES TO STAY ON TOP OF TRENDS AND TOOLS, KEEPING HER EYES OPEN WIDE FOR INSPIRATION EVERY DAY.

JANIS SUNDQUIST’S TOOLS OF THE TRADE ARE HER MEASURING TAPE, COLOR DECK AND PHONE. “I’m taking photos constantly and turn to Pinterest, too, for inspiration.” With a degree from American Intercontinental University in Atlanta and time abroad in London and studying interior design and architecture at Loyola Rome center and Cite University in Paris, she brings a European sensibility to her projects here in Sandy Springs and Dunwoody, where she has been in business for 30 years. Her work has been featured in the VIP room at the High Museum, at Spirits Bar at HartsfieldJackson Airport and in homes across the globe. Janis frequents ADAC, AmericasMart Atlanta and Underfoot Design for Carpet.  Her goal? To get the best quality and the very best price for her clients after listening carefully to their needs. For clients who wanted a refresh and update for their great room, Janis traded the chunky furniture for sleek, straight lines which quickly brought the room into focus. The home’s master bathroom had interesting architectural features that didn’t pop until she changed the color palate and watched the paint transform the luxe space. “I go to first color, furniture then lighting to update a space."

ACID REFLUX

HEALTHY STOMACH

Don’t let GERD continue to interrupt your life...

GERD STOMACH

gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) caused by a weakness of the muscle that separates the stomach from the esophagus. Symptoms could include chest pain, heartburn, regurgitation, sore throat and cough, which can impact sleep quality and interrupt daily activities. Our board-certified physician Dr. Srinivasa Gorjala and on-site dietitian can help. We specialize in non-invasive, minimally-invasive and robotic techniques for general surgery that may alleviate GERD symptoms and improve quality of life. With a full spectrum of services, we provide on-site evaluations and a variety of treatment options.
