“I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.” ~Mother Teresa

This September, we commend two San Clemente locals who are allowing a beautiful love letter to be written to the world with their lives. Lindsay and Dominic Russo run an international nonprofit organization with a special branch called Angel House. Angel House has built 172 homes to date for orphaned children in India. We are proud to be part of a publication that is partnering with Angel House in this significant work. Read more about this story inside our pages.

In this month’s issue, we also shine a light on a local business, Fiorina, that has created a space for women to come together and feel empowered. The boutique also carries beautiful, quality leather bags that were created with a lot of love, and delivered right here to you all the way from Uganda and India. 

With September, we also welcome the turning of another season. As the brightness of summer fades to the warm glow of fall, we wish you joy and peace, laughter and love. At San Clemente Lifestyle Magazine, we are ever grateful to be part of the San Clemente community. Thank you for accepting us with open arms.

Happy September, San Clemente!
