Editor’s Letter • March 2023

Welcome spring!

After last month’s winter storm (which is apparently an annual thing now), I am looking forward to warmer days ahead. In this issue, you’ll find great ways to celebrate spring.

For those looking to breathe new life into their home, interior designer Gigi Kinsey shares the top home trends for 2023 as well as ideas to enhance your personal oasis. (You’ll also want to check out our other story on her new book, A Woman’s Guide to House Flipping.) Our cover story also highlights Austin Window Fashions’ new showroom in Georgetown and offers tips to help you see your home in a better light.

When it comes to planning spring break activities, Worth the Drive features a few popular destinations and a hidden gem or two that are sure to keep kids entertained while school’s out.

Perhaps you’re also considering a visit to Six Flags over spring break. Real Texans might say you don’t have to be a vexillologist to know it’s not just a catchy name for a theme park so I hope you’ll take a brief look at the six flags that made Texas, Texas on page 48. 

Speaking of trips, you’ll also find a story on the Wilco Regional Animal Shelter’s new program that allows pet lovers to give dogs a much-needed break from shelter life by taking them on field trips around town.

City and school elections will soon be upon us, and Georgetown has three races on the May 6 ballot for mayor and Districts 2 and 6. Plus, if you live in Sun City, we have everything you need to know about the Jarrell ISD bond package.

Lastly, if you’re looking to spread some love, be sure to check out our Food page for some creative takes on the charcuterie trend. 

Don’t forget that other “annual thing” and move your clocks forward March 12. Check your alarms and embrace the extra daylight and, if you’re like me, look forward to one more hour of reading by sunlight.
