This month brings with it an abundance of joy—bright blue skies, a rainbow of flowers and, of course, the celebration of mothers on May 12. In this issue, we not only celebrate mothers but we also highlight a few of the wonderful women in our community who are making a difference beyond their households. In “Moms on a Mission,” we are excited to introduce you to some spectacular women doing meaningful work.

As the weather warms, we are dreaming about weekend getaways and summer break. Enjoy a curated list of staycation ideas, perfect for all ages—and especially good options to take Mom.

We look at a Towson-based designer who is bringing a signature list to her client’s homes in “Fully Evolved.”

The following pages are filled with stories to inspire us to give, to love and to live.

 So, Towson—may you find a quiet moment (or two) to enjoy this issue we’ve lovingly dedicated to you. We hope you find joy in reading as much as we have found creating it!
