Summertime and the living is fun

Debbie Hall HeadshotI know the saying is, “Summertime and the living is easy,” but Las Vegas Woman magazine is all about having fun as well as to educate, entertain and inspire.

Tammy Grabel, our publisher, has given birth to her beautiful daughter, Grace, and we couldn’t be more excited. We already have her desk set up, and I am mentoring Grace to become the next editor. OK, it is really a nursery but what a wonderful addition!

Summertime is also a time of weddings, so check out Bridal Registry by Jennifer Florendo (page 52) for great gift ideas. To host the ultimate party, Style Event Design (page 57) creates one-of-a-kind events to make every occasion memorable. For those special nights out, designer Pamela Humphrey, our Fearless Female from our Spring 2015 issue, showcased her gowns during Fashion Week (page 38). Speaking of going out, Nevada Opera Theatre Association (page 16) will be holding a gala June 7. To enjoy a tribute to Broadway, plan to attend “ShowStoppers” at Encore and read our profile about its amazing choreographer, Marguerite Derricks (page 14).

Ready for a vacation? We are fortunate to live so close to many staycation destinations including Mt. Charleston and Lee Canyon (page 35). Relax in temperatures 20 degrees cooler, do a little hiking, ride the ski lift for incredible views and stay overnight in either a cabin or intimate hotel.

Of course our professionals, including lawyers, real estate agents and educators, are what make Southern Nevada so special. I am thrilled when I need these services, as there are so many amazing women I can reach out to and know I am being helped. Our Fearless Females make me proud to be a member of this community for close to 40 years (wow), and I am thrilled to be able to share our experiences.

Thank you for continuing to read Las Vegas Woman magazine as we continue to educate, entertain and inspire.
