From the Editor • January 2023

While I’m not much for new year’s resolutions, I do make one annual promise to read more, although I usually just end up burying my nose in old favorites like The Chronicles of Narnia, Ann Patchett’s Bel Canto, and Fredrik Backman’s Beartown series. 

Our story on how to make 2023 your best year includes a list of literary destinations I used as an excuse to make yet another trip to one of our community treasures, the library. A big thank you to Peg for helping me find some Texas-themed books I drew inspiration from for our What Makes a Texan “a Texan” story, which I hope motivates you to try new ways to embrace your Lone Star identity.

We also share ways to pursue a healthier lifestyle, including exercises-in-disguise, a possible new definition of healthy foods, a story on choosing the right diet for you, and a cover feature on a fitness equipment company that lets you take the gym home with you. 

We are also delighted to share the City Council’s goals for Georgetown in 2023, and for those who have ever wondered, you’ll learn the differences between service and support animals and the important roles furry friends play in our lives.

On a personal note, I am thrilled to start this year off as a new editor for the Georgetown View. Getting to shine the spotlight on the city I grew up in has been so special, and I’m looking forward to helping bring even more uplifting stories and lifestyle tips to Georgetown mailboxes in 2023.   

Happy New Year!
