Tammy Grabel Head ShotMy husband, Seth Grabel, and I just celebrated our 1-year wedding anniversary. As we watch other couples prepare for their “I-Do” day, we are reminded of the excitement we experienced. Wedding season is officially upon us and to help engaged couples navigate their planning process, Las Vegas Woman magazine has provided a special Wedding Section for ideas and tips.

Spring is a beautiful time of year, more so this year as Seth and I embark on our newest journey together: becoming a mom and a dad. We are counting down the weeks and must admit we are a bit nervous as newbie parents. I’ve confided in countless moms as to what to expect in pregnancy, labor, delivery and when our baby girl comes home for the first time. As we get ready for our baby to arrive in May, our thoughtful writers here at Las Vegas Woman magazine are helping us and other moms. Jennifer Florendo has compiled together items that every mom should have in an article cleverly named “Newborn Necessities.”

Seth and I are extra appreciative for the freedom we have now to go out now to places like the movies and dinner together before our baby arrives. We recognize that our lives will never be the same once our family expands to three. One place we love to go on our date night is Lee’s Korean B.B.Q. Talk about delicious! The food reminds Seth and I of when were in Korea together. Lee’s Korean B.B.Q. is owned and operated by the Lee family whom also owns the notable Lee’s Discount Liquor stores and is a local family business. We love supporting local businesses and encourage you to do the same.

Speaking of local businesses, as you read through the diverse articles in this issue of Las Vegas Woman magazine, remember to support our advertisers. They are the backbone of the publication and make it possible for our team to provide you with information that continues to educate, entertain and inspire!

To educate, entertain & inspire,
