    Our love letter to Columbia

    Love your Columbia


    Spring is here!


    The days are longer, warmer, and perfect for spending outside exploring along the Riverwalk; the trees are beginning to bud with the promise of new leaves, the new spring lines are arriving at the local shops and boutiques, our favorite spring festivals are just around the corner, and our city is beginning to shine with the brilliance of a new season. The new decade is well underway and we’re excited to bring you our first issue of 2020!


    Our spring issue focuses on living well and being mindful—from simple pleasures like enjoying a hot cup of coffee on a chilly morning to being an advocate for the big pictures of sustainability and building with intention. It’s a reminder to love ourselves, love our places, and love our planet as we welcome the clarity and vision that comes with a new season.


    Dive headfirst into this issue as we introduce you to the people and the businesses that are invested in making Columbia the best version of itself that it can possibly be. Meet our Fig Authentic, Lou Kennedy, who is not only providing hundreds of jobs for those in our community at Nephron Pharmaceuticals, but she also gives back to our community and is actively working to build it into an even better place to call home. We’re also celebrating the legacy of companies that are celebrating large milestones like family-owned and operated WP Rawl and Wolfe & Taylor who are celebrating their 95th and 75th anniversaries respectively. There are also companies like ByFarr Design and Loveland Coffee, two small businesses whose teams and businesses have grown to the point of expansion—and they have both chosen to renovate and reuse existing buildings for a new purpose.


    This spring, make it a priority to make and take time for yourself. Why not try a Pilates class for the first time or set a new fitness goal to work towards? Plan a date night out downtown and enjoy a staycation at Hotel Trundle where you can catch a few extra minutes of snoozing. Step into the local boutiques and allow them to guide you in choosing the perfect wardrobe for your busy Spring calendar. They’ll help you find a fresh look that’s just right for any occasion! We love this town that we call home, but even more than our love of Columbia is our love for what truly makes this town special: you! Go ahead and treat yourself this spring. You deserve it!
