feb coverWelcome to our February issue!

In our February Love Your Home issue, we touch on the importance of loving your space in professional organizer Andrea Brundage’s article; a green home builder’s passion for buying locally; and a celebration of Arizona’s 105th birthday. Plus, enjoy an inside look at this year’s ASU Sustainability Solutions Festival; a spotlight on SRP’s president David Rousseau and his family roots in local farming; couples’ finance tips; the origins of organic gardening; a feature on local artist Patsy Lowry; and much more.

February is also National Heart Month, and we feature an article from the American Heart Association on how walking can be the best exercise for heart health. And don’t miss our Valentine’s Day recipes for two on pages 40-41.

If you’re giving Valentine’s gifts this year, instead of grabbing that supermarket bottle of wine and box of chocolates, find them locally. Make a reservation at one of Arizona’s thousands of local restaurants instead of the national chains. Or, if you’d rather stay in, visit the farmer’s market and pick up fresh local produce and specialty items to cook at home with your beloved. Check out our Valentine’s Day Gift Guide on pages 14-15 for more ideas on how to make this Valentine’s Day special while contributing to the local economy. Your state will thank you!
