Hey Dads and Dudes!

I so want to say welcome to summer and yes, in a few weeks, it will be that according to the calendar…but I think, in spirit and energy, it has already arrived. That’s the beauty of living here. Many people say we don’t have true seasons but I think we do - we almost have two seasons… ‘Almost Summer’ and…

In Bloom This May!

It’s that time of year again when the sun is out and the fabulous weather has us Del Mar and Carmel Valley folks out and about, preparing to celebrate the amazing women in our lives on Mother's Day. As children, you probably had a moment you wanted to show mom your appreciation - Picking flowers to express your love or…

Spring into April!

The recent rains have ensured spring’s bounty welcomes us in full bloom here in Del Mar and Carmel Valley…Always amazes me how much we have to be thankful for! From world-class resorts to hyper local businesses, we can find everything within a few minutes in our neighborhoods.

Welcome Home…

When you think of home, what comes to mind? Family, favorite meals, endless conversation with friends, celebrating our amazing community or just relaxing in the comfort of your space while enjoying a world-class sunset…I'd like to share with you some thoughts on what home spells out for me in my heart and mind.

Language of Love

Love is probably one of the most powerful words in our vocabulary - and the most powerful emotion! It is so broad - so all encompassing yet has so many meanings. Love for family, friends, your passions and interests, your soulmate and, of course, love for community.

You Inspire Us!

The foundation of a happy and fulfilling life is health and wellness. What better way to start off the New Year with this issue! In our community, health and wellness, and healthy living, is very much a part of our culture. Given the broad scope of health and wellness today, we tried to play our part in covering some stories…

Holiday Cheer

The Holidays - one of the most anticipated times of the year. A time of hustle and bustle - family memories, celebrating with old friends. It's a time of traditions - some old, some new. What I love most about the holidays is the timeless classics like that song that just brings back happy memories or shopping in your favorite…

What’s on your bucket list?

The spirit of adventure is what drives me each day to learn, discover, explore! I am thrilled to feature some amazing adventures and stories this month.

Cheers, Del Mar!

Each issue of Del Mar Lifestyle is a fun month for us to celebrate the stories of our community but we've been excited for our Local Beer & Wine focus this month for a while. Del Mar and San Diego have so much to celebrate that is right in our backyard. This month, we take a look at the continuing…

What an incredible Summer it has been, Del Mar!

As we were adding finishing touches on our September issue, I looked back at all the wonderful events we featured and so many more around town the past few months. If you are looking for one more taste of the season - the track is still running through Labor Day and speaking of taste...we are very excited for the Taste…

Dog days of summer are here…

Once in a while, as we hit this time of year, people will say we are in the dog days of summer. While our furry friends probably feel that way everyday at the dog beach, it can often refer to the longer, hotter days we experience now. This month, between time at the beach, surf and soaking up that summer…

Celebrate Summer

Summer is in full swing. Signs that Summer is here again - you’ve had your fill of fair food, concerts for all music lovers and, of course, opening day is around the corner at the track. Summer as a kid seemed endless, didn’t it? Each day held promise of endless adventures with friends, exploring and creating with your imagination. Today,…

Celebrating 
Summertime…

Growing up, some of my favorite memories of my father were in the backyard, grilling out on endless Summer nights - not a care in the world, enjoying a freshly prepared meal with friends in the neighborhood. A steady stream of family would come by for some conversation and to unwind. This month, we celebrate that same spirit with our…

Home is…

When we think of home, we often think of a house, the rooms and their contents; maybe with a yard, garage, perhaps a little picket fence. The bathrooms, kitchens and living spaces make a house functional. Often times there are little feet pattering around whether they are furry feet or those of our children. They give the house life. However,…

New Experiences, New Ideas

As we worked tirelessly to put together our first Arts Issue, we realized that to truly cover the arts in our community there's so much more happening than we could fit in one month. The good news is there's more to come! We hope you enjoy our look into the various forms of art that make our community so vibrant…

Lifestyle Letter

Welcome to the March issue of Del Mar Lifestyle! I think it's safe to say that when most of us think of Del Mar we mostly think about sunny days and cool, comfortable evenings. Our minds conjure images of perfect blue skies, serene beaches and sunshine glittering across the seemingly endless Pacific Ocean. We think of art. We think of…

Lifestyle Letter

Greetings Del Mar! Welcome to the February issue of Del Mar Lifestyle. This being February, I suspect that many of our hearts and minds find themselves pondering love. As I sat down to write this, I found myself pondering love. I considered attempting to articulate what love means to me. I considered writing a long-winded soliloquy regarding broad themes of…
