It was about 10 years ago that I was lucky enough to stumble upon this little seaside hamlet called Del Mar. I found this little village merely by accident as a tourist for a night or two on my first visit passing through San Diego on business. The specialness of the landscape and the active outdoor lifestyle stayed with me for years to come. When I was lucky enough to move my family west to Southern California from the East Coast (New Jersey), the village of Del Mar was the first place that came to mind as a place we’d love to put down some roots. We have already become a part of this vibrant community with its amazing schools, creating new memories as a family raising our two boys as Southern California beach kids.  

I am excited to embark on this new journey as the publisher of Del Mar Lifestyle. I look forward to bringing stories to your home each month of the great people and businesses that make Del Mar and Carmel Valley such an amazing place to live, work and play. Community connections are what we hope to explore together. 

 Our May issue is our “Ladies” issue where we are reminded of the amazing women here and in our lives with Mother’s Day approaching. We have a great piece, “The Goal Diggers of Del Mar,” spotlighting various women in our community. You’ll learn about a chef, a musician, an educator and various entrepreneurs. We also take you along on a girls getaway trip to Beverly Hills and showcase an interior designer who crafted a beautifully designed Del Mar residence. There’s much more to come. 

This magazine and each issue moving forward is for you, the readers, to dive into and discover each month. I strive to bring you engaging, meaningful content each month to help connect you to the people you find in these pages. We have a really fun year planned for you. We hope you enjoy!

All the best,

Chris Lowe
