“Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, but with a great and strong purpose in your heart.” 

-Gordon B. Hinckley

Welcome February to San Clemente, as we unveil our Readers’ Choice Awards in an article titled ‘And the Winners Are’. Also featured this month are several artists, each one with a unique way of expressing their wonderful talent, from Larry Beard’s photography, to Paul Lawrence’s Pictorialism and Susan Cox’s Contemporary Expressionism, to the enchanting Expressionism of Charmaine Olivia. 

Also this month we’ve spotlighted several businesses who feature Homegrown/Locally Made. Josh Jones and Alan Kang’s Murf’s Electric Bikes, Lisa Brill creator of Qēt Botanicals Truly Artisanal Skin Care, Designer Laura LeFever with REFLECTIONS Interiors and Design team up with Lindsey Bruce of Avenue Home Staging, and Mrs. Pucker’s Lemon Shot shows us how important Vitamin C is for our health, in particular, the eyes.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this month’s issue. Have a great February San Clemente!
