PUBLISHER’S NOTE Photo Courtesy of Kari Stenholm Photography At this time of the year, many of us are longing to escape the everyday grind of work and responsibilities. It’s said that Americans work too hard - and if you’ve ever been to Paris in August when it seems every Parisian is “en vacances” for the entire month, you may suspect this to be true. In this issue, we’ll have you dreaming about escape. Ever considered Sweden a great place to visit? You’ll fall in love with it now. Come with us, also, to some amazing hotels around the world - in Barcelona, Guatemala, South Africa and Portugal, and some right here in Florida. With tips, suggestions and ideas for an amazing vacation, long weekend, quick escape or staycation right here in your local area, we’ve got you covered. And if your idea of relaxation involves your own backyard, we’ll give you some great ideas to spruce it up and make it look like a vacation spot. How about a gorgeous new wardrobe to take with you on your travels? We’ll show you the latest looks from HOSS Intropia, a unique Spanish design brand worn by celebrities such as Helena Christensen. And don’t forget, with Mother’s Day (Sunday May 11th) and Father’s Day (Sunday June 15th) looming on the horizon, you’ll need to start shopping now. Fear not. Our gift guide will point you in the right direction with the best ideas in luxury gifts for Mom and Dad. Happy shopping!
