“Home is where the heart is.” It’s a common phrase meaning that our homes are a central place in our lives—where we rest our heads, nourish our bodies and make fond memories with loved ones. It’s the epicenter of our worlds, where we start and end each day, and where we keep our most prized possessions.

This month, we bring you our Home issue, which is full of all things regarding where you dwell. From a home renovation feature to an article about maintaining and restoring your humble abode’s exterior beauty, get homey with us.

We hope this issue inspires you to appreciate the place you call home—both your personal digs and our shared community—whether you’ve just moved or it’s a place your family has occupied for generations.

Here’s to home sweet home!
