Change in life is inevitable.

As much as we try to control life’s outcomes, there are times when we have to heed the call of responsibility.

Whether or not that responsibility comes at a time when we need it most, isn’t always up to us.

As you may or may not know by now, I’ve been given the opportunity to progress as Magazine Coordinator for Cobb Life and Brides. This, for me, is an exciting progression. I’ve had subscriptions to magazines on and off for over 20 years and have been somewhat obsessed with them over the years.

So I will take this new change head on and with much might. Throughout the last two years with Cobb Life, I’ve gotten to know quite a few wonderful people, who I’ll never forget. And I can’t wait to meet more of you in the coming days. 

Cobb Life is a great resource for the community and I look forward to bolstering more hometown features as well as helping to provide an invaluable product that you all can enjoy.

I’m eager to step into this new role and look forward to learning even more about Cobb County.


And while I have your attention, I hope you’ve been enjoying this holiday-themed issue of Cobb Life.

Since there’s still time to tweak your decorations, we have two homes in Cobb that take on Christmas like no other. You’ll be inspired by their dedication to this merry time of year.

There’s a Gift Guide full of ideas for the pickiest person on your list — with the opportunity to personalize items for your loved ones. We also will help you get started on your low-key New Year’s Eve celebrations at home.

Learn about a wonderful toy store in Marietta and if you’re looking to take a relaxing vacation soon, find out just where to go.
