HARVEST OF GOLD may be the theme of Harvest Homecoming 2017, but in this issue you’ll also find a common thread about what makes the New Albany festival so special: family, friends, food and fun.
The Extol Magazine team is excited to be one of this year’s platinum sponsors of Harvest Homecoming as it celebrates its 50th anniversary and continues to bring hundreds of thousands of visitors – and dollars – to our local community…and beyond.
Happy Harvest Homecoming! Here’s to the next 50 years!
SO WORTH IT
I’ve never been a fan of laborious morning routines, especially now that I have a toddler. I’d much rather eat breakfast with her than spend time applying makeup or painstakingly straightening my hair. So, I’m always eager to find ways to make my beauty routine easier.
That’s why I tried microblading, a simple semi-permanent procedure that has given me back the eyebrows of my youth and allowed me to throw away my brow pencils. I had my procedure done by Kate at Body & Brow Boutique, 37 Bank St. #9 in the Underground Station in New Albany, and couldn’t be happier with the results. To see a video about the process and my experience, go to extolmag.com. You can also find experts at microblading at J. Nicolle Salon & Spa, 113 E. Market St. in New Albany.
JOHN AND KATE + 1
Speaking of Body & Brow, Kate, who owns the waxing boutique, and her husband, John, have made the decision to adopt a little one through Adoption Bridges of Kentuckiana, which partners with St. Elizabeth, a wonderful organization that continues to give hope and change lives.
As some of you know, I was adopted as an infant, so it should come as no surprise that I have a heart for those who choose to walk the path of adoption – birth parents and adopters alike – which isn’t always easy.
For months now, I have been following Kate and John’s adoption journey at johnandkateplusone.com. It’s a heartwarming, informative, honest site that includes readers on their journey. I encourage you to check it out.
As always, thank you for taking the time to read Extol. Your support means so much.
