It brings me such joy when I receive emails, phone calls and texts about something we've shared with you in our magazine. Our last issue featured my son Kobe standing with books in one hand and a surfboard in the other. He was wearing both "summer" attire and "back to school" attire, and my phone rang! I got questions such as, "My family has a bet going on. Can you tell me if the clothes he's wearing are sewn together or Photoshopped?"  "Did you combine two pictures together?" "How did you do that?" Well, the truth is, there was NO Photoshop, it's not two pictures and no, the clothes are not sewn together. 

In my previous life, my husband was in the fashion industry in California both as a designer and a photographer. He put many people on the map with his designs and photography and as a team, we were used to doing unusual, artistic photo shoots very quickly.  For this shoot, we simply used paper clips and clipped and folded everything together to make this look! It was fun but I must say, not so much for my son who was having a hard time holding all the heavy books and the surfboard on the hottest day of the year (remember that day?) as his poor feet were burning up without shoes! Thank goodness, we are quick! Thank you, Kobe, for hanging in there.

Something exciting happened in the City of Destin recently. They set another world record (Joe Fejes set a record by running 134 miles in sand, Dewy Destins has the largest Hush Puppy, and we have numerous records for fish) and this time it had to do with the kids from Destin Elementary School! They made history being the largest tennis lesson given (806 is the official count) on October 30th! We had the pleasure of being the official photographers at the event and all the pictures we took can be viewed at Feel free to download any you choose and see the full article about this story on the site as well!
