Kids and Pets

For many of us, August is a bittersweet turning point in the calendar year. Summer freedom is drawing to a close, and the school bells will be ringing any day now.  While the lazy days of sipping cool beverages poolside may be numbered, this month brings a sense of renewal.  New routines, new clothes and new … Continued

Summer Fun

Summertime is a magical season. The kids are out of school, the sunshine seems never-ending and there’s no shortage of adventures that await. For many, summer evokes fond memories of childhood—sleepaway camp, family vacations and swimming until your fingers shriveled like prunes. In this issue of Midlothian Lifestyle, we share with you ways to kick back … Continued

Gents

OK, gentleman. You’ve waited patiently for your turn. Last month, we brought you our Ladies issue—it is ladies first, after all—and this month, we present our “Gents” issue, celebrating all things masculine. Of course, there’s Father’s Day on June 16, but there are so many more reasons why it’s great to be a guy this … Continued

The Future is Female

In this month’s feature article, you … Continued

Home Is Where the Heart Is

For some, home is where the family is. It’s the place where weekends were—or still are—filled with kids coming and going, movie and popcorn nights and Saturday morning cartoons… Ok, we probably ARE dating ourselves with that last one.   For others, home is where the rest is. It’s the place where, after a long day, they … Continued

The Makers Issue

Oh, the month of February—it’s short, sweet and filled with sweets (thanks for the handout, Hallmark). Valentine’s Day is a bit of a gimmick for card companies, but at least it makes you reflect on who and what you love.  It only makes sense to meet makers this month, because if it is one thing we … Continued

Thankful

As November rolls around, we’re anxiously awaiting the approach of Thanksgiving, the holiday season and time spent with our loved ones. This time of year always brings about a time of reflection for us—remembering both of our dads no longer with us but who both LOVED Thanksgiving, cooking and the large gathering of family; turkey disaster … Continued
