From the editor
We’re excited to bring you this issue of Hartselle Living, filled with stories that celebrate the vibrant spirit of our community.
In this edition, we dive into the lives of the extraordinary individuals who make our community thrive. Through their experiences, we uncover the essence of talents and the unique ways in which it intertwines with their lives. From the 14-year-old who shares her artistry with the world by drawing amazing pet portraits, to a Hartselle woman and business owner who has been a pillar of the community for half a century – the stories in this issue will transport you to the heart of our community, allowing you to connect with the people who call it home.
Our magazine is a celebration of the human spirit and the shared experiences that bring us together during this sun-kissed season. Through the power of storytelling, we hope to inspire you to embrace the warmth of the community and create lasting memories of your own. We encourage you to explore new adventures, discover hidden gems and forge connections with those around you.
We have amazing recipes for you to try brought to you by Emily Norris, as well as columns written by community leaders. As we embark on this summer journey, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the incredible team of writers, photographers and creatives who have worked tirelessly to bring these stories to life. Their passion and dedication are evident on each page.
Wishing you a season filled with sunshine, laughter and unforgettable experiences.
Thanks for reading,
