Since our children were born, parents of older children have been telling me “Enjoy it while you can because time goes so fast.”

At the time, as a sleep-deprived young Mom, it was the last thing I wanted to hear; yet I now realize how true it is. I am more aware, with each passing day, that as our children get older both the days and the seasons fly by faster. It feels like I was just writing last winter’s Publisher’s Note, and here we are again!

Being mindful of how fast time goes, we felt it was important to take advantage of our time together, and we embarked on a trip of a lifetime to Greece in September.  Our girls – aged 11 and 8 – missed the first two weeks of school and joined us, along with my husband’s parents and sister, to explore three Greek Islands, as well as Athens. Intergenerational travel is something we had never experienced, and we had a fantastic time making memories in another country while enjoying another culture. There were lots of laughs, a few tears, and some learning curves, but mostly just fun!

This issue leads up to our 3rd anniversary of publishing Huron-Perth Boomers, and there seems to be no shortage of topics to discuss that are important to adults 50+. There are many things you’re thinking about, struggling with, and wanting a local expert’s opinion on. In this issue we cover topics such as low vision and eye health, how to pack a capsule wardrobe for your winter holiday, a trip to the Ecuadorian Amazon, a Bucket List travel feature of local women who hiked the entire Bruce Trail, and so much more!

Thank you for continuing to support Huron-Perth Boomers magazine. We are so very proud to be the only local, free magazine for adults 50+ in Huron and Perth counties.

Happy winter!
