Letter From The Editor
The dog days of summer – summertime is rarely as relaxing as advertised. The sunniest season is chock full of events to attend and occasions to celebrate. That’s hardly a complaint. Our team at Acadiana LifeStyle is in the full swings of summer. From Media Day at Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel to the bevy, a bevy I tell you, of ribbon cuttings, grand openings and Chamber of Commerce events, we have been keeping a full dance card. And that’s exactly how we like. We love celebrating the growth and expansion of Acadiana with those who are making it happen.
Speaking of summer events, the Stars of Style Gala is this month. It’s always exciting to get the initial list of the honorees, but nothing compares to when their bios and formal pictures start to roll in. We love getting to put this piece together to show our readers why each honoree is so deserving…and offer a sneak peek at how fabulous the event will be. You can get the full stories on all 19 honorees and get the event details on page 23. Acadiana LifeStyle has maintained such a long standing relationship with this event. It’s an honor to be associated with it year after year.
Temperatures are still rising, so it may not seem like it, but fall will be here before we know. And that means school bells will be ringing soon enough. We want our readers to be as informed as possible, and because of that, we moved the Back to School section from the August issue to the July issue. Plus, we have so much exciting information coming from the local school systems that we couldn’t wait to share it. (Spoiler alert: That means the August issue will have a brand new section to replace Back to School.)
