Happy first of March! Don’t you love the first day of the Month? It feels like anything is possible and there’s an opportunity to seize every moment. For us, the first of the month is a renewal to our commitment to live local. At SRQ | The Magazine, that’s who we are. And it is what we do. This month, we’re so proud for you to meet our March edition. If the cover is any indication of what you’re in for once you peruse the pages, get ready for home envy. That’s a diagnosis we’ve all come to accept in the SRQ office. Symptoms include scouring the pages to pick the next shade of paint you plan to buy, making mental notes of decorating ideas for that spot in your own home that needs a little attention, dog-earing the pages for your list of dream home must-haves and the occasional driving slowly through the streets of Sarasota paying attention to architectural details. We’re quite familiar with home envy, because when the annual SRQ Home of the Year entries start flooding in each year, we stop in our tracks and say the only word that comes to mind. Wow.
Wow, indeed! The March edition is home to some of the finest home envy-inducing projects that we’ve ever seen. We can’t wait for you to see them! But of course, we are proud to present other amazing stories that encompass all of the incredible events, dishes, people and happenings in our great region. There’s a story on breakfast that is of critical importance for those of you who like to wake up and smell the bacon. If a morning cup of joe is more your speed, never fear. We’ve covered that, too! There’s even a story all about The Sarasota Opera that has us daydreaming of the rich costumes and storylines that make each performance as intriguing as it is lovely.
The March edition also unveils a fresh new look, thanks to a brand new layout and snazzy, chic fonts. If magazines could get makeovers, this issue is our “after”. All in all, the March edition is a winner.
We hope that you love reading it as much as we loved putting it together for you!
The SRQ Team
