EDITOR’S NOTE M a r y Ta y l o r

I

LIKE TO WAIT UNTIL THE END of each project to write

my editor’s note because sometimes my mind needs to unwind a bit before I try to string an entire season together in 1500 words or less. The diverse topics that each publication covers in Life, Style and Community might seem uncoordinated to new readers; however, once they get over the shock that this truly is an independent magazine, any jumps in subject matter seem immaterial. Oftentimes, readers ask if there is a theme for each season’s publication. My hope is that every edition demonstrates a recurring theme: that the sum of the content is greater than all of its individual parts. A lifestyle magazine that doesn’t incorporate its home community within its pages seems unnecessarily shallow to me, so ultimately our mission for Taylored Living Magazine is to highlight not only the diverse spectra of lifestyles within the Tri-Cities, but also the community behind those lifestyles that makes this such a wonderful place to live. As a member of this community who doesn’t have any extended family living nearby, I used to spend WAY too much of my time trying to figure out where I belonged, or trying to validate my existence here, when I could have used that time and energy embracing the fact that simply by living here, I already belong. You do too! In this Spring Issue of TLM, you’ll find that our features range from interviews with women who choose to live in the Tri-Cities yet work remotely, to an empowering article on a local Jiu-Jitsu Academy that offers a free women’s self-defense class every Friday simply because “Women shouldn’t have to pay to learn how to defend themselves.” Other topics include fun recipes you can follow at home, tips to build your own bouquets using local flora, and a new non-profit that repurposes flowers to provide entertainment for our wonderful senior community. Every issue offers the predictability of an inclusive “feel good” read as well as additional unpredictable and unique articles.

In

today’s ever-changing, often virtual marketplace, remote employees are shaping a new way commerce is being conducted across varying outlets. While the days of punching the timeclock are still very much alive, the way that is executed has shifted significantly to provide more flexibility for both employers and employees. In this piece, we’re speaking with three different women: one works in the nonprofit world, one is a business owner, and one works in the corporate world. All happen to work remotely, all in differing fields, and all also choose to live here in Tri-Cities.

Becky Benson

I, personally, am a conference coordinator for the National Tay-Sachs and Allied Diseases Association, a national nonprofit organization based out of Boston. My entire position revolves around planning one large event each year known as the “Annual Family Conference.” We serve families of terminally ill children who are affected by Tay-Sachs and its allied diseases. These genetic diseases are extremely rare, with only approximately ten new diagnoses each year in the US, and unfortunately are always fatal. The conference each year is the opportunity for affected families to come together for research, support, and education. As the parent of a child who had Tay-Sachs disease myself, which is how I originally became involved in the organization, I can attest to the magnitude of support this program provides to our affected families. The Annual Family Conference is held in a different location each year, and thus wherever the conference coordinator works from must be remote. From my home office here in Tri-Cities, I coordinate conference location and family attendance, arrange mobile app content, and manage every other piece of logistical material that goes into making the conference a successful and meaningful experience for our families. I find that with so many moving parts, having the flexibility to be able to work from home allows me to be dialed in at a higher level and at all hours of the day; it’s often after the typical ‘workday’ that families reach out for support.

Olivia Berg

In speaking to Olivia Berg, Owner of Blank Space, Kennewick, and partner in both Pacific Northwest Steel homes, a steel-frame home building company, and Prodigy Digital Marketing (PDM), a virtual company that provides online training and support to dental offices, she notes that working remotely allows her to be everywhere at once in order to keep up on several projects at one time. Primarily with PDM, Olivia has clients all over the country, so her virtual presence is all that any of her clients will ever see. She also feels that laying out strong expectations for her employees within the realm of a comfortable, engaging environment adds positivity to the office culture and company dynamic, so they can then take the task at hand and confidently work on their own pieces which, in turn, aids in productivity. With a personal motto of “run fast and break things,” Olivia shares her view that to be innovative you can’t be afraid to make mistakes: it will only hold you back from trying to push further and pursue your goals. “There’s a strong learning curve,” she tells me, but she sees a great future for businesses operating remotely, and with many more than the typical online retailers of today, as the wave of the future. “I have employees here in the office, and I have some across the US. As long as their work is completed on time and up to standard, the employees can determine how they structure their own work days,” Oliva says. Of course, there are factors that help one be productive. “You have to be able to stay focused,” she mentions. “Time blocking is big for me.” She notes that if

you’re someone who is easily distracted, the challenges of working remotely may be difficult for you in that you have to effectively manage your time and hold yourself accountable. “Personally, I decide

each morning that, for instance, I can spend thirty minutes answering emails, and then I’ll put them away until tomorrow. If I don’t, I could easily get caught up in being tied to my emails all day long. I also make a point of standing up to walk around and reset a bit at least once each hour.” Olivia also works hard to structure her work so that it doesn’t eat into her family time. “Boundaries are important,” she continues. “I don’t have a computer at home. There’s a time and place for everything, and I have to stick to the delineation line of work-time versus home-time.”

Leslee Bertsch

Leslee Bertsch is a Business Manager for Corporate Treasury at Bank of America. Leslee, a Tri-Cities native, began her career with Bank of America fourteen years ago while living in Charlotte, North Carolina. After spending many years in that role, which was one she loved, Leslee’s desire to move home was becoming a greater factor in her life. She tells me, “I requested that they allow me to work remotely. Given my years of experience, the strong relationships I had built, and the teams I support across the country, they approved my remote request.” Given that Charlotte seemed like “home” to neither she nor her wife, Melissa Davis, they moved to Tri-Cities and now split their time between Tri-Cities and Charleston, where Melissa is from.

6

As Leslee says, “It allows us to be near both family and friends—it’s the best of both worlds!” Since she supports teams across the US, Leslee will occasionally travel to these teams’ locations in a support role, but she notes that it’s not often, and that no matter where she was working, she would be doing that from time to time. In regard to the challenges she faces as a remote employee, Leslee feels they are very little: “Given the years of being on site in this role and establishing solid working relationships, I don’t ever feel as though there are hurdles that I am faced with. And, of course, given that I work with people all over the country, and now globally given the expansion of my role, I need to be available via phone or email at

all times. There are many people I work with that I have never met in person.” Leslee notes that you don’t need to see them every day to establish a close and productive working relationship with your coworkers. She finds that the benefits of working remotely include an increased focus on her home life. “We love that our days are not consumed by sitting in traffic going to and from the office,” she muses. For anyone seeking to work from home, the biggest piece of advice for others, and one that we all share, is that you must be focused--on work tasks during work time, and on being able to ‘shut it off’ when it’s time to switch gears and focus on your family/homelife. ⁋

DEFENDI NG YOUR LEGACY Written by Mary Taylor Photography by Mark Cornellison, Lama Glama Photo

OU just had the worst week of your life, and all you want to do is grab a couple of girlfriends, drink a few beers, and ten-step next to your best friend while you listen to your favorite local band. Your fingers anxiously type out the S.O.S to your “go-to-girlfriends” text thread, and as soon as you hit “send,” there’s a flood of “hearts,” “thumbs-up,” and “cheers” emojis! GNO activated; mission complete! In the spirit of washing off the bad ju-ju from the worst work week ever, you decide to put on that low-cut top hanging in the back of your closet that screams “unprofessional.” I mean, what better way to give your boss the proverbial middle finger than to wear something you wouldn’t be caught dead in at work? From nine am to five pm it’s button-ups only, and the last time you checked it was just after five, and you’re officially off the clock! For many of us this scenario seems familiar. I’ve personally lived it on multiple occasions…what I’ve failed to include (on purpose) is the ending: although MOST women would end the night on a high note and successfully wipe away the stresses from a horrible work week, local statistics show that there is a small percentage of women who will become the victims of unwanted harassment, advances, assault, and even violence. Sometimes the aggressor’s motive is sexual, sometimes it’s aggravated, sometimes it’s opportunity, and sometimes…there is no rhyme, nor reason, nor motive at all...other than a desire to hurt someone. Have you ever heard of the “knock out game?” That name was assigned by news media and other media outlets here in the United States to identify a type of assault on an unsuspecting victim where the perpetrator attempts to “knock out” the victim with a single powerful strike to that victim’s head. News and social media had a field day spreading mass attention to this phenomenon because all of us were fascinated by it. The idea that any one of us could be assaulted at any time, by a complete stranger, and for NO REASON AT ALL commanded our collective attention, because we as a society, although unintentionally, have stigmatized adult victims as being “active and participating recipients.” Let me write that again for people who like to skim read: We, as a society, have labeled adult victims as being “participating recipients.” That’s why adults who are victims of assault frequently find themselves having to face questions and judgements such as whether or not they placed themselves in harm’s way, for example by choosing to wear a low-cut top. The assumption is that an adult should know better whereas a child who is the victim of an assault gets the luxury of simply being a victim. This mindset is unfair and problematic to say the least, mainly because the goal of sexual assault (or any assault in general) is for one person to indiscriminately exert power and manipulation over another. Fortunately, for Benton and Franklin Counties, we have SARC (The Support, Advocacy & Resource Center) which is a wonderful resource for victims.

LIFE

SARC is taking brilliant leaps toward destigmatizing and helping victims locally. Their mission is two-fold: 1. To provide crisis services, support, and advocacy to victims, non-offending family members, and others who are impacted by crime after the incident. 2. To strive to create and maintain a community without violence through prevention-based education. Although the thought of living in a community completely absent of violence is inspired, it’s unrealistic. With the prevalence of substance abuse and mental illness combined with limited resources for combating these afflictions/diseases, sadly the question isn’t if you will ever become a victim…it is more appropriately, when will you become a victim and what are you going to do about it? That’s where Legacy Jiu-Jitsu Academy comes in. Prevention and self-defense are the ultimate goals for Megan and her husband, Brendin Phillips, who are the sole owners of Legacy Jiu-Jitsu Academy, an extremely successful program dedicated to teaching the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Srisuk Muay Thai, and Aikido. (Steven Segal, anyone?) While the program boasts more than 200 active members, Megan and Brendin wanted to give back to our community by offering a free Women’s Self Defense Class EVERY Friday from 5-6pm. The purpose of this class is to offer any local woman the opportunity to learn how to physically defend herself from an attacker. Although Megan states that there is an age requirement due to liability issues, the program seeks only to give back and takes the anonymity of participants extremely seriously. Therefore, those who run the self-defense program do not solicit participants for additional training, recruiting, marketing etc. In fact, when I arrived with my photographer to take pictures for this feature, we were put through a “mock” class filled with volunteers so that no participants in the actual program were photographed. In order to establish this continuing training at no cost to each participant, an extremely special instructor was sought: serendipitously, Dan Wandler, who is a third-degree black belt in Taekwondo and who has studied the discipline for 17 years, researched and collated what he feels are the “fundamental techniques for a self-defense program.” He wanted to provide a realistic application of the arts to any woman who would like to learn how to physically defend herself. Dan states that he doesn’t feel as though any woman should have to pay to learn how to defend herself from an attacker, and because of this, the Legacy Jiu-Jitsu Academy became the home base of his FREE SelfDefense Program for Women. Although our country is seeing a shift in power toward “The Woman” physically, emotionally, and professionally, there’s still room for improvement! Local programs offered by SARC and the Legacy Jiu-Jitsu Academy are what I believe to be real trailblazers for truly empowering women, and they are certainly leaving behind a legacy to be proud of.

SELF-DEFENSE SCENARIOS Provided by Michelle Cronquist, friend of Legacy Jiu-Jitsu Academy

Scenario 1: Wrist Grab

You’re at a bar/club, closing out your tab when a drunk man asks to buy you a drink. You decline, and he grabs your wrist while still trying to convince you. REACTION Wrist Release. Move into his space rather than pulling away (super counterintuitive, but effective). Break the grip at its weakest point (the thumb and index finger) and bring your elbow up and forward. TAY L O R E D L I V I N G M A G A Z I N E


LI FE

Scenario 2: Hair Grab

Someone grabs your hair and tries to drag you toward a car/ secluded location. REACTION Firmly grab assailant’s wrist/hand where it is connected to your head, regain your base, and allow your whole body to move as one. Next, if you can, turn your body to face the assailant and move into his space and start swinging knees, hammer fists and elbows.

Scenario 3: Grabbed From Behind

You’re out on a solo run at a secluded part of the trail. Someone grabs your whole body from behind and attempts to drag you somewhere. REACTION If the bear hug is loose, strike back with elbows, hammer fists, reverse headbutts, etc. If the bear hug is tight and you aren’t able to strike easily, drop your weight to the ground. If they begin to try dragging you to another location, if you can, wrap a leg around theirs to make it difficult to move. Once they stop moving/dragging, start wiggling/striking. If they have lifted you up off of the ground- bring your legs up in front of your body at 90 degrees, and throw them aggressively back down toward the ground. At minimum, this will disrupt the assailant’s balance, and ideally will get your feet back to the ground where you can regain your base and begin striking/wiggling again.

TMIP: The Most Important Points

BE LOUD Your voice is your most immediate and powerful weapon. Start shouting, even if it’s gibberish. BE AWARE Keep your head up and constantly scan your surroundings. Know where you are going and where your exits are. TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS If you have a bad feeling, a hunch, a pit in your stomach, figure out another option. You have thousands of years of survival instincts built into your DNA; let them do their job! ⁋

SCOBY SAY WHA’…? How to brew your own kombucha Written and photographed by Meghan Rickard

I

F YOU HAVEN’T tried kombucha, you’ve probably heard of it—“The craze that’s sweeping the nation!” Ok, that may be a bit drastic, but it is really catching the mainstream consumer’s attention! What is kombucha? In short, it is fermented sweet tea. Kombucha is said to have many awesome side-effects such as providing antioxidants, decreasing inflammation, improving gut health, providing B vitamins, plus a handful of essential minerals and organic acids, lowering cholesterol, lowering blood sugar, even claiming improvement of liver and GI function and decreasing rates of cancer. As with anything health-related, do some research of your own and talk to your health care providers who have knowledge of kombucha. You can grab a bottle of prepared kombucha from almost any grocery store. The beverage section, sometimes in the ‘natural’ section of the store, will have anywhere from one or two and up to ten or more brands. You can even find kombucha on tap at places like Yoke’s, Encore Wellness 4 Life, and The Growler Guys! Some people who are trying to kick their soda habit switch to kombucha, probably because there is still that carbonation that they love so much! So, when you grab a bottle from the store, you can expect the fizzy bubbles. Also be prepared for the fact that it tastes kind of funky at first, especially if you’re not used to fermented food--there is a bit of a vinegar-y taste to it. Of course, this could partially depend on the flavor you pick up as there aren’t too many options on the shelf with no flavor. If you’ve tried a few different brands or a few different flavors, and you’ve come to love kombucha, you might notice it’s not the cheapest beverage to grab, especially if you want to drink it daily! Brewing your own kombucha at home is simple and very easy on the budget! First, you will need to find that crunchy-hippie friend who already brews at home. You’ll need to get a SCOBY and some starter from him or her. There are kits available online, but getting some from a friend will also give you that personal source of information you can trust! The SCOBY, aka the “Mother,” a living Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast, helps to ferment sweet tea into kombucha. The ‘starter’ is basically the kombucha that you’ll use to brew your first batch with.

TAY L O R E D L I V I N G M A G A Z I N E


LI FE

HOMEBREW ONE GALLON OF KOMBUCHA »» Boil 14 Cups water. Add 1 cup sugar and stir to dissolve. Steep 8 black tea bags in the water/sugar solution for 3-5 minutes. Let cool to room temperature. »» Add cooled sweet tea to SCOBY and 2 cups starter liquid. (This is what you got from your crunchy-hippie friend). »» Cover all with breathable fabric or coffee filter. Secure tightly with a rubber band (hello, asparagus rubber band!). »» Store in warmish location out of direct sunlight. (Mine is stored in my kitchen cupboard away from the stove and fridge). As the sweet tea + starter ferments, a thin, translucent layer will start to form on top. This is the new layer of SCOBY forming. »» After about 5 days, taste test. It should be somewhere between sweet and bitter. A great way to test is to use a straw, stick it down around the edge of the SCOBY (about halfway down) and use your finger to stop it up. Pull it up and drop liquid in your mouth. This will be the least intrusive way to test it should you need to continue brewing. »» Once it’s brewed to that in-between-sweet-and-bitter taste, you need to bottle: I started by using simple canning jars with canning lids. This is super easy, especially if you want to add flavoring to your kombucha. Before you start pouring your kombucha, though, be sure you save your SCOBY and 2 cups of liquid so you can brew your next batch! I use my 2-cup glass measuring jar and a glass pie plate to ‘store’ my starter and SCOBY while I bottle.

12

»» W hen you’ve finished bottling the kombucha, you will put your 2 cups liquid and SCOBY back into your brewing vessel. You can restart the brewing process by adding another round of sweet tea if you’re ready to brew again. If you’re not ready to brew more right away, just be sure you keep your SCOBY hydrated with sweet tea so it doesn’t dry out, and store it somewhere dry and warm. »» After a few brewing cycles, your SCOBY may start to grow too big for your liking. You should be able to peel layers off to toss, give to friends, or find some other use for (hello Google!). I tend to keep my SCOBY to about ¼ an inch thick, and I ask for any takers when I need to peel off layers. TIPS: Before you start, wash everything with water and vinegar; use glass or food-grade ceramic to brew your kombucha; stainless steel is okay for boiling and stirring, but avoid prolonged use; do not use wooden utensils as wood harbors bacteria too easily! SCOBYs can look funky, but as soon as you spot mold, everything must be thrown out, and you will have to start over completely. Do not store your SCOBY in the fridge. Bottled kombucha can be kept in the fridge as further fermentation will occur if stored in the cupboard. Do recognize that because of the fermentation process, a very small percentage of alcohol may be present in your beverage! To add flavoring, you can add these in after you ‘bottle’ your brew (herbs, spices, essential oils labeled for internal use, fruits all work). To create additional “fizz” you can use extra sugar in your bottling stage, and the tighter the seal, the more carbonation will build. When you start drinking kombucha, drink a little bit (a couple of ounces) followed by plenty of water throughout the day, as kombucha is a natural detoxifier, and you want to flush the toxins out of your system gradually. Side-note: this is how I brew kombucha, but it’s definitely not onesize-fits-all, and there are many variances.

ARMER days for us at Gathered Home means we are full force into the junking season! All of those cold and dreary days when we were trapped indoors with nothing but time on our hands created the perfect storm for cleaning and clearing out unwanted furniture and household items. And what’s that old saying? “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure!”

Consider spring the Super Bowl of thrift shopping season. The start of daylight savings time foretells a chain reaction which alerts many households that it’s time to organize and purge unnecessary clutter! For the right thrift shopper, some of that clutter has the potential to get repurposed, upcycled, and flipped for a profit. It’s time for creative recyclers to go outside and start scouting those estate, yard, and garage sales! Brooke, from PlumWild, recommends looking for the unusual. She states, “I try to pick items that I wouldn’t normally purchase, and that pushes me to creatively reinvent each piece.” Carrie, from The Barnloft, used a similar creative technique by combining an antique asparagus lug with four galvanized metal containers to create a unique cascading planter that is perfect for a porch!

ELLO! My name is Kris of the flower design studio KRISanthemums in Hermiston, Oregon. I grew up in Western Washington and fell in love with the green, lush foliage all around. In high school I worked at a local flower shop after school, and was crowned “Daffodil Princess” my senior year, so you could say that working with flowers and designing beautiful floral arrangements has always been my calling. After attending Washington State University (Go Cougs!) and marrying Doug, we moved to Eastern Oregon where my husband cultivated five acres of land into Bennett Botanical Gardens, a wonderful place for us to host events from May through October. Come see our test site for new varieties of plants, our 35’x100’ greenhouse, which is where we raise city baskets of petunias, other annuals, tropical plants and succulents. Separate from the greenhouse, a visitor can explore various cultivated gardens as wonderful backdrops for photography and events, and enjoy my flower design studio and boutique where I transform individual blooms into gorgeous bouquets. The KRISanthemum design aesthetic heavily emphasizes seasonal blooms and foliage. Monochromatic colors make a large impact, and I tend to use an organic approach by working with the shape of each flower or branch so that the arrangement looks as if it could be growing just like that out in my garden. I believe that flowers can express themselves to us if we let them. I take each floral design project as a personal challenge to create something that has not been done before. Many times, I am emotionally exhausted after creating these unique arrangements 16

because of the amount of love and myself that I pour into each project. Designing floral arrangements for weddings is now, and will always be, my first love; however, adding other events as well as making local deliveries through the years has become my fun way of connecting with clientele throughout the area. This spring come visit the gardens! Enjoy listening to the laughter of grandchildren playing, watch as a photographer orchestrates a photoshoot, or simply say hello to my dog as she keeps me company in the studio. Come see exactly how Bennett Botanical Gardens, home of KRISanthemum’s Flower Design Studio, inspires me on a daily basis.

Did you know that daffodils secrete a latex substance when they are first cut? All parts of the daffodil are toxic, so be careful around pets and children. »» Find a tree with blooming branches, and cut branches to stand a few inches taller than the singular blooms. »» Favorite Spring Blooms: Tulips, Ranunculus, Anemone, Hellebores, Daffodils KRISANTHEMUMS’ TIPS FOR THE BEST CUT FLOWERS »» Purchase your flowers at the local store on flower delivery days. Do they get new flower deliveries on Thursdays? Then shop on Thursdays. »» If you get your cut flowers at the farmers’ markets, keep them in water and cool until you get home. Don’t leave them in a hot car or in direct sunlight. »» If you cut flowers from your garden, harvest blooms when it is cool outside. Hydrate immediately. »» Clean off all foliage from the stems of your flowers that will sit under the water line. Bacterial grows on foliage under the water level and can shorten the life of your cut flowers. »» Re-cut the stems of you flowers at an angle to achieve the maximum amount of water intake as possible. Make sure your pruners/shears/scissors or knife are clean and sharp. »» Change out the water in your bouquet every few days. When you do this, re-cut the stems at an angle. »» Keep cut flowers away from fruit (apples, pears, bananas etc.). The fruit produces ethylene gas and will shorten the life span of your buds and blooms.

KRIS’S FAVORITE FLOWERS Carnations, Alstroemeria, Stock (fragrant), Snapdragons, Mums

KRIS’S FAVORITE VASE Clear Hourglass vases allow you to see the water level and the condition of the water. The hourglass shape is narrow in the middle and tends to hold flowers in place.

OW that it is officially spring, let’s talk about spring cleaning and the whole Marie Kondo frenzied explosion on Netflix. To be honest, I couldn’t handle watching her. I gave up after a few episodes simply because of the subtitles. At most I have about thirty minutes, if that, of TV time, and that’s usually while I’m prepping dinner. I understand the nation’s obsession with the Marie Kondo thing though. We live in a society based on consumerism and the idea that more is better, more is more, and that the new “thing” we found on Amazon Prime will finally be the endall-be-all gadget that solves all of our problems (plus it comes with one-click-twoday-shipping? No brainer!) As a personal stylist, it’s my job to help my clients find this happy medium within their own closets. Rather than liken my services to that of Marie Kondo, I actually throwback my inspiration to a TV show that will give away my true age: I refer to myself as the “Tri-Cities’ own Stacy London and Clinton Kelly,” from TLC’s What Not to Wear. I go through a similar process as do London/Kelly by first meeting my clients where they are personally at, and developing a full understanding of their unique body shapes, coloring, and even style tastes before getting into the nitty gritty of my profession: a full closet cleanse and audit/inventory session. Regardless of body-image struggles, different levels of styling knowledge, or even budgets for clothing, my mission is to empower women to love their appearance every day, and to give them the tools necessary to reach that goal. I fully believe that when a woman looks amazing on the outside (matching her inner beauty with the outer) she can reach her maximum potential. Our very own Mary Taylor reached out to me to help her with these same struggles. As a busy “Mommapreneur” of two boys and the curator of TLM, she’s running from school drop offs to business meetings, and needed quick, go-to looks that could pull double duty. Armed with my tips and tricks, we have been able to TAY L O R E D L I V I N G M A G A Z I N E


ST YLE create for her some transitional outfits from the clothing that she already owns and that will take her from mommy-on-the-go to business-professional within a matter of minutes. The challenge? Mary is tall and requires long inseams. With some trepidation, Mary admitted her stress with shopping: “Nothing ever fits quite right,” she said. Several items in her closet were either too short or ill-fitting, so she settled for clothing she didn’t truly love, or which didn’t match her style, in an effort to just get by. This is a limiting belief. We all have limiting beliefs, and I have heard every excuse in the book from working with my clients. Whether it’s “I am too short,” or “I am too tall,” or “my rear-end is too big,” or “I am too old,” or “they simply don’t make clothes to fit my body,” all of these notions are lies and limiting beliefs which keep women from looking their best. Sometimes fixing the problem can be difficult, and we may need to find alternatives to shopping in just the Tri-Cities or investing in the help of a seamstress to get the perfect fit, but it can be done! As is often the case with a first closet session with one of my clients, Mary’s guard was up: on that Saturday afternoon furniture was being moved in/out of her master bedroom, and she was apologetic that things seemed in disarray. “Can I drink a beer while we do the closet cleanse?” she asked. “Of course!” I said.

I actually have numerous clients who feel the need for a glass of wine to help soften our first experience together. Usually it’s just before the dreaded body measurement process (which is honestly not as painful as it may seem). I think Mary would agree with me that although everything seemed a little daunting at first

I enter every woman’s home with a loving heart.

to have a professional enter her closet, it’s that professional’s job to assess where the client is currently at and to go from there without making that client feel intimidated or judged. I enter every woman’s home with a loving heart. It is my personal goal when I meet with a client to inspire her to think of our time together as if it was her first session with a personal trainer; that trainer won’t get mad at her for not having mastered the perfect form yet! He/she will teach her and is there to be her guide--answering questions, teaching methods, and giving her the tools she needs to be successful along the way. I can’t wait to continue working with Mary and to see how she starts to fly on her own: that is my ultimate objective. As the old saying goes, “Teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime.” I truly believe that teaching a woman how and where to shop and dress for her unique shape and style can inspire her to become an unstoppable force! #theforceisfemale Are you ready to start your own journey of self-discovery, to dress for your shape, and to even save time while getting dressed every morning?

FRONT DOOR DÉCOR By Roberta Chalaris-Davis, Interior Design Consultant with It’s All in the Details Photography by Meghan Rickard

Make your porch a refuge to escape, read a book, or sip some lemonade.

W

HILE you are out in front, you can greet your neighbors and create a welcoming vibe that will invite visitors into your home. Each porch is as unique as its house and the people who live there. A porch, large or small, is a great place for a sitting area. Adding a comfy chair or a bench is a great way to encourage relaxation. Beautiful flowers add color, but are definitely not the only way: consider adding the unexpected, and layer an outdoor rug with your front door mat, add color and texture with fabric pillows, and if you have the room, add curtains to define your space. The use of ceramic pots and textured planters can bring that pop of color that we typically crave after a long winter. Add artwork and greenery to create an indoor feel—outside! Dare to blur the lines and break the rules of design, both indoors and outdoors. Porch lighting is as much a creative design element as it is practical. Overhead lighting creates a sense of security, but the use of lanterns and battery-operated candles can create ambient lighting as evening draws near. Go vertical with your accessories to balance the height of the front door. Lastly, a beautifully decorated porch can add curb appeal. Use your porch to give a glimpse of what’s to come inside. Showcase your style! Be Bold, Be Creative, Be You! ⁋

#READLOCAL Written by Mary Taylor

I

F you are anything like me, you love to read but struggle to find the uninterrupted time to do it; therefore, when you finally settle on a book, you cross your fingers that it’s a page turner. How do we decide ahead of time if a book is worth its weight and our wait? For me, I find a book’s value in a variety of ways, and I always give bonus points to our local authors. As you may be aware, one of my goals with this magazine is to initiate a microcampaign to bring attention to our local creative talent and community. Although the Tri-Cities is located in between the major metropolitan areas of Portland, Seattle and Spokane, our quality of gifted writers rivals their best any day! That’s why TLM has started to promote a #readlocal campaign. We want all of us Tri-Citians to open our minds to the talented local authors that we already have in our midst and to support them first! Because my time is so limited these days and my expectations for literature are so specific, I find that I’m decent at weeding out books that don’t serve me in some capacity. Referrals for a few good books from friends are always a great start, but even with that, I tend to run across a bust for a book every now and then, and that gives me anxiety. Once I’ve cracked

24

the binding I’m committed, though, so in an attempt to save myself some heart-ache, and in addition to utilizing friend-referrals, I’ve created a list of three questions that I ask myself prior to committing to any single book. Some of these questions may be no brainers; however, some you may have never thought to ask yourself before. WHAT IS THE SYNOPSIS? The synopsis is usually located on the back cover of the book where it briefly describes what the book is about. Is the topic interesting to you, or does it positively serve you in some way? WHO IS THE AUTHOR? This might just be the detective in me, but I like to have an idea of who the author is as a person and not just as a writer. Does the author live an interesting life? Are there pictures of him/her on social media? Do we have similar values? Is this someone I would want to be stuck in an elevator with? All of this information should be easily accessible through the internet. Most authors have a website for their business marketing.

WHAT IS THE AUTHOR’S STYLE OF WRITING? It always irks me when someone describes writing as “good” or “bad.” In my world, there is no such thing. Either it’s relatable and consumable, or it doesn’t fit your taste. Just because you might not like the writing does not make it bad. It just means that you don’t mesh, and that’s a book you would struggle with. With the three above-mentioned questions in mind, I went to social media and received over eighty local author recommendations. I went through all these referrals and ran “accessibility” searches through social media and the internet. When authors were easy to look up, they moved on to the next phase. If I couldn’t find their published works, websites, links, blogs, or a way to learn about them and their writing, they got scratched. Not surprisingly, the eighty referrals narrowed down to less than sixty, simply because I couldn’t find information on many. A few minutes of research ahead of time can save you days of disgruntlement! Once I had found the accessible authors, I looked up the availability of specific publications that they were known for and priced these publications

TAY L O R E D L I V I N G M A G A Z I N E


out. Although pricing interests me, cost isn’t necessarily a deterrent—depending on the value I receive from the book. A book’s value, to me however, immediately increases when I know that the author is local! Remaining value comes from content and how the publication serves me. In order to address this, I ask myself the three questions: What is the synopsis? Who is the person behind the writing? Can I understand and relate to the words? Without giving too much away, here are five of my local author choices in no specific order. You’ll find that the variety of my recommendations tells more about me as a reader than it does about the authors as writers. Listed below are a few of my initial picks. I have NOT read any of these books yet; however, I do plan on making my way through this list and updating you on my progress in future publications.

The last few books I’ve read were from The Red Mountain Chronicles: Red Mountain and Red Mountain Rising written by Boo Walker.

A Gallery Full of Gifts Written by Marisa Quirk

I

N the 1940s a small group of artists wanted a place to paint and display their artwork. In 1948 they wrote a constitution and officially founded the Allied Arts Association: a nonprofit organization that believes a vibrant community deserves rich visual arts opportunities. Today, Allied Arts provides art exhibitions and education from the Gallery at the Park. Local and regional artists bring their original handmade works for display and sale to the public.

Allied Arts is also responsible for Art in the Park, a major community event for the last seventy years. At this open-air festival visitors may browse and buy a wide array of arts and crafts from more than 200 artists. Art in the Park also features activities and live musical performances. These types of events fund Allied Arts’ student scholarships and community outreach programs, like Beads Behind Bars, and Art Connection. These programs play an important role in the community by making art education more accessible,

and allowing participants to explore their creativity and gain a greater sense of their own value. If you’re looking for a unique gift, or some beautiful art, stop by the Gallery at the Park​—you’ll be supporting local artists and encouraging arts in the community.​ You can also see new work from a variety of artists at the gallery space which features a different exhibit every month. And if you’re getting excited about art, sign up for one of the workshops offered at the Gallery at the Park!

White Glove Floral Donations Written by Alexandra RoseLee

W

Glove Floral Donations (the nonprofit) repurposes donated floral arrangements from weddings and events. These repurposed flowers are then provided to residents and patients of nursing homes, hospices, hospitals and other medical facilities, and are used for the purpose of floral and group therapy. The beauty of WG Floral Donations is that it provides an opportunity for arrangements that would otherwise go to waste--to be enjoyed all over again!  Residents and patients undergoing medical care and treatment can utilize the donated bouquets to brighten their living spaces or enjoy them as part of a group activity. The valuable role that floral therapy plays in the lives of patients and the elderly is increasingly recognized by gerontologists and care specialists; therefore, in addition to floral donations, we at WG Floral also offer floral design instruction to further enhance the recreational and therapeutic aspects of the experience. It is our hope the donations and associated design activities will continue to have a positive impact on the physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing of those it touches. hite

COM M U N IT Y

Currently, Chaplaincy Hospice Care, Royal Columbian Senior Living Community, and Desert Wind Gardens Adult Family Home are participating in the program; they have ambulance services for picking up and delivering flowers to their respective facilities. The florists who make up our board of directors will continue to hold floral classes to instruct staff of these locations, and to equip them with the skills necessary to institute WG Floral donations into their programs and activities so that the directors of these care facilities can use the program as a therapeutic activity. Individuals who donate to the White Glove Floral Nonprofit receive a letter/receipt for the dollar amount of their floral donation which the donors can then use as tax credit. This non-profit funding is then used towards the initial startup costs for training and the supplies required at each of the participating facilities--all of which will continue to go a long way toward boosting the spirits and lives of those Tri-Citians in need. Supporting our community and making it a better place is important to me on a personal level: with so many beautiful bouquets and arrangements going to waste after their initial use, I know we can do better! Ultimately, and as someone who recently had a grandparent in hospice care, I have seen first-hand what a blessing this project can provide for our loved ones: a moment of joy; a memory they can take with them as they pass into the next phase of their personal journeys.  This is my wish for each delivery made by White Glove Floral Donations. To volunteer or for more information please visit; wgweddings.com or contact @wgweddings via social media. To provide a financial donation, you may do so at gofundme.com/white-glove-floral-donations
