Nicolette Martin

Change Brings Out the Best FEBRUARY MIGHT BE THE SHORTEST MONTH, BUT IT IS BY NO MEANS SHORT OF EXCITEMENT. I am happy to announce a change to the title of the magazine. “Smyrna Vinings Lifestyle” has been on many readers’ radar for quite some time. I’ve had lively discussions with several people about including the booming city of Smyrna on the cover. Well, we hope you like the change. Smyrna is definitely a huge part of the magazine, we are constantly writing about its residents and businesses. Speaking of businesses, turn the pages to find out who won in the 2018 Readers’ Choice contest. Support your local businesses and show your love by patronizing the winners this week as well as for Valentine’s Day. We love the businesses that make our lives so much better and appreciate their excellence. We have included all of their addresses, phone numbers and websites so that you can easily find them, if you don't know them already.

Dr. Camille Havis and her team at Campbell Middle School are doing some incredible things! HERE ARE JUST A COUPLE OF THE NUMEROUS ACCOMPLISHMENTS THEY HAVE RECENTLY MADE TO MAKE OUR STUDENTS AND COMMUNIT Y EVEN BETTER!

As Cobb County’s only Middle Years IB Program, they sponsor a yearly trip to Colombia to fulfill one of the IB requirements of community service. This past spring they adopted a school in Bogota and supplied them with fully loaded backpacks, refurbished their computer lab, and repainted the school. They will be returning this summer to Bogota as well as to France and Spain for the upcoming Spring Break. They collected donations for the victims of Hurricane Michael with basic items such as non-perishable foods, bottled water, and cleaning supplies. The PTSA did a fabulous job of organizing the event and having radio station STAR 94 come out to promote. Their Lady Spartans AND Elite Gentlemen’s Club allow students the chance to learn business etiquette, interviewing skills, the application process, and character building. They both have guest speakers, business related field trips and a yearly culminating night out to a restaurant with a five course meal that requires the students to dress the part of a business owner.

WE CANNOT WAIT TO SEE WHAT THE REST OF THIS SCHOOL YEAR HOLDS FOR THEM! WE ARE PROUD OF YOU, CMS!

Did You Know?

A caldera is a large volcanic crater typically formed by a major eruption leading to the collapse of the mouth of a volcano. Forming the southernmost member of the Cyclades island group, Santorini is the remains of the Minoan eruption that, 3,600 years ago, destroyed a formerly single island and created the current caldera.

stay SUN ROCKS BOUTIQUE HOTEL Sun Rocks Boutique Hotel is considered one of Santorini’s most romantic hotels. The elegant couples-only cliffside hideaway—named a Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice 2018 award winner— features luxe, minimalist rooms and suites carved into the side of a volcanic cliff featuring amazing caldera and sea views.

Just a short stroll from the Sun Rocks Boutique hotel is this restaurant dedicated to creating the perfect combination of flavors and atmosphere to create unique moments in Santorini. Ranked on Trip

Traveling Foodie There are so many flavors to explore in Santorini! Some must-try Greek foods include tomato kefthedes (tomato fritters), saganaki (fried cheese in phyllo topped with honey, Santorini salad, baklava (phyllo filled with honey and chopped nuts), spanakopita (Greek spinach pie) and Greek fava.

Advisor’s top 10 romantic restaurants in Santorini, Casa di Te is inspired by Greek modern cuisine, Mediterranean cuisine and a touch of local flavor. Start with steamed mussels with saffron and Assyrtiko wine, followed by sea bass fillet fricassee with greens and lemon sauce, and finish it off with Semolina halva in a kadaifi nest with

experience SUNSET VIEWS

About 25 minutes up the coast is where you can catch sights of what people often refer to as arguably the best sunsets you’ll ever see. Catch some of the best panoramic views of Santorini from 15th-century Byzantine castle ruins. Situated on the side of caldera cliffs, Oia village offers tons of breathtaking viewing spots. Be sure to get there well before sunset—because of the area’s sundown popularity, you’ll find crowds of people gathered on streets, rooftops and stairs anticipating the one-of-akind experience.
