Let Us Entertain You.

I have a deep-rooted love for the arts, which is why our annual Arts & Entertainment edition of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle is my favorite issue of the year. This month we celebrate many of the wonderful artists and entertainment opportunities in and around our community.

Gas up and go.

We were exactly 25 hours into summer vacation when my 9-year-old first uttered the words, “Mom, there’s nothing to do.” If you’ve also heard these words or felt them yourself, we have some great ideas for you inside this issue of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle. This month we have a potpourri of stories about people and places in and…

Dedicated to the men we love.

Ladies, last month was your time to shine. This month it’s all about the guys. This issue of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle is packed full of stories about amazing men who are helping to shape our community in a variety of ways.

Women who inspire us.

In honor of Mother’s Day, May's issue of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle celebrates the women in our community who inspire. Earlier this year we asked you to tell us about inspirational women who live, work or volunteer in our community. It was difficult to narrow the list, but this month please enjoy the stories of our community’s exceptional women.…

The Great Outdoors.

With the mild winter we had this year, it might feel like spring arrived months ago. But now as the mud-covered ground and bare trees give way to the more vibrant colors of spring, the outdoors feel warm and welcoming once again. It’s time to get outside!

Make your house a home.

What makes a house a home? I believe it’s the way it makes you feel when you enter. If it’s warm, welcoming and filled with love, it will feel like a home. This month we share tips on how to make your home feel more comfortable, stylish and warm.

Four-legged family member.

This year we had a new addition to our family. Our brand-new bundle of joy kept us up many sleepless nights, but she stole our hearts immediately. She walks on four legs and is covered in fur, but that doesn’t make her less important as a bona fide member of our family.

A Healthy New Year.

Happy New Year from all of us at West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle! As we kick off 2017, we are given 365 new days and a chance at a fresh start. It’s tradition to take this time to focus on making positive changes in our lives. This Healthy Living edition of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle is packed full of…

Holiday traditions.

It’s hard to believe the holidays are just around the corner. Each year as I unpack my boxes of decorations, memories from Christmas’ past come flooding to my mind. One of my favorite holiday traditions dates back to my very first Christmas. Every year my mom would give me a new Christmas ornament. When I moved out on my own,…

Happy Anniversary!

Welcome to the one-year anniversary issue of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle! It’s hard to believe that a year has passed since our first issue arrived in homes. Last November we launched West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle with a mission to engage and inspire our communities, raise awareness of local charities and help area businesses grow. We thank you, our…

Fit for a foodie.

Two of my favorite indulgences are great food and great wine. I consider myself a "foodie," often seeking out unique new dishes to savor at restaurants or experimenting to create something tasty in my own kitchen. That’s why we’re excited to debut West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle’s first Food & Wine issue.

For love of the arts.

My love of the fine arts started when I was five years old. My mother took me to see a community theatre production of Annie. I was in awe of the singing and dancing that took place on that stage. Just a year later the movie Annie came out in theaters, and I was hooked on the music. No record…

Ages and stages.

Next month I reach a new milestone—I turn 40. As I prepare to start a new decade, I’ve started thinking of the various ages and stages in our lives. This month West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle travels through the years and dives into stories about different generations.

Summer around town.

As I sit on my porch this July evening, I can hear the telltale signs that summer is in full swing. I hear the melodic chirping of the robins nesting in our rafters (it’s not so pleasurable at 5 a.m., but in the evening it’s quite beautiful). There are the excited voices of children playing games like kickball and capture…

One of the guys.

I grew up in a home with all women, but now I am outnumbered in my household by three to one. Today, I am the sole female in our home. When my boys were younger, I grew hoarse from trying to get them to sit still. I got frustrated with attempts to stop the symphony of bodily noises at the…

Women that wow us.

While growing up, whenever I had to write an essay about the person I admired most, the choice was easy—my mom. I could wallpaper a room with the stories I have written about her. Mom showed me the value of hard work and sacrifice when she worked three jobs to keep us in our childhood home. She showed me that…

Come sail away 
with us.

Spring is here! As the weather shifts, many look forward to making plans for travel and outdoor adventures. This travel and outdoors issue is about inspiring those plans and getting back outside. My family has been returning to the same vacation spot in Southern Florida for over 35 years, now bringing the fourth generation of our family to this special…

Home sweet home.

Home. It means different things to each of us. For some, it’s a relaxing place to unwind and escape at the end of a long day. For others, we look around our home and see only the things that need to be fixed: piles of disorganized clutter, half-finished projects, outdated décor and spaces that need a thorough cleaning. I definitely…

All things local.

In West Chester & Liberty Townships we are fortunate to have some of the biggest companies in the world right here in our backyard. These businesses provide jobs, opportunities, financial resources and charitable contributions to our residents. Large corporations make a significant contribution to enable our communities to thrive.
