WHAT A WILD TIME to be alive. Undeniably, the past few months have been profoundly challenging for our nation – and our community. With Ridgefield’s darkest days seemingly behind us, kindness, compassion and empathy have prevailed.

Businesses have embraced new practices, families have embraced new dynamics, and members of the community have embraced one another. As the mom of a toddler, I’ve had more time with my daughter than ever before, including my maternity leave. That’s something I’ll happily embrace.

Many are embracing new opportunities, too – myself included. I’m incredibly honored to continue telling the remarkable stories of the Ridgefield community. Nearly two decades ago, Geoffrey Morris created Ridgefield Magazine. Over the years, the magazine has undoubtedly united, inspired, and delighted countless residents through its compelling content, vibrant visuals, and steadfast integrity. I’ve known Geoffrey through our mutual involvement with Ridgefield’s Economic and Community Development Commission, and look forward to his continued involvement in the magazine.

As we approach the summer solstice, I’m optimistic for what’s to come. The change of seasons offers plenty of reasons to get outside, and our natural surroundings afford endless backdrops for outdoor adventures. Here’s wishing you and yours a safe, sunshine-filled summer.
