Magazines. Newspapers. Books. Blogs. We’re nothing without our readers. So today, as folks take special care to remember those they love, I’m feeling the love for “Stage Mom” readers — and all the people who support our work at Raising Arizona Kids magazine.
It’s a labor of love that began more than two decades ago, headed by our publisher and editor Karen Barr — who’s gathered an amazing team of folks who feel like a second family. It’s a big, extended family, I think, because all of you are in it. I hope her own first family knows how much we appreciate them sharing her with us each day.
Parenting is hard work. Publishing seems no easier. But Karen never loses her passion for gathering and sharing stories and community resources with others on the journey. So whether you’re a reader, subscriber or advertiser, I thank you from the bottom of my heart — and wish you the happiest of “heart” days.
