Recently my friend Lyn Fonzo became the new proprietor of Harbor Yoga, located at 114 Main Street. I stopped in to say hello and just fell in love with her clean, well-organized, and beautiful light-filled studio. The full class schedule is posted on the Harbor Yoga website, which you can read here. Look for exciting new programs and events upcoming in the new year, including a 200 hour teacher training program taught in conjunction with Yoga Joy.

A class card from Harbor Yoga that can be used anytime over a six month period would be a much appreciated gift for the yogi in your life and is easily purchased online.

While out and about shopping local during this holiday season, be sure to make Sugar Magnolias one of your destination lunch spots. Pictured is my husband’s Goatie omelette, which was devoured, and I had the Florentine Eggs Benedict, which could not have been more perfect and delicious. Sugar Mags never disappoints!

Did you “miss” Black Friday? So did we.

  • Please be prepared to bake at least three-dozen cookies, for the judges and party attendees to taste.
