Here Comes Summer 1

In this issue, we celebrate the special men in our lives. Here’s to our husbands, fathers, brothers, sons and friends!

Of course, there’s Father’s Day on June 16, but there are so many more reasons why it’s great to be a guy this month. With the summer season underway, our long, sunny days can be filled with backyard cookouts, camping trips, fishing excursions, biking a trail, paddle boarding and so much more.  

On the following pages, discover the beautiful paintings of naturalist and river guide David Kinker. Take a look inside a 100-year old farmhouse renovated with new life and distinctive styling that tells a story of family tradition. Learn about the healing properties of essential oils and how to incorporate them into your daily life.

Looking for something to do around town? See our story “City Guide for Every Guy” to find ideas. And at the end of a beautiful June day, try The Citizen Bar & Kitchen’s refreshing mojito recipe in this issue to relax and ponder your next adventure.

Cheers to a great summer!
