From Na­dia

Birth­day cel­e­bra­tions and goal-set­ting with our editor at large

Nadia - - CONTENTS -

Happy birth­day to us, happy birth­day to us! Yep, it’s NA­DIA magazine’s first birth­day. Our star team started on this big project one year ago. I have to give a shout-out to Shel­ley (Fer­gu­son) and Lucy (Slight) for their all-round amaz­ing­ness as peo­ple and their abil­ity to bring this magazine to­gether in such a beau­ti­ful, mean­ing­ful way; Tanya (Wong) for bring­ing the con­tent to life through scores of gor­geous pages; Fiona (Ralph) for in­ter­est­ing and in­quis­i­tive sto­ries; and Steph (Attwa­ter) and Sally (Conor) for mak­ing sure it all makes sense. And, of course, to YOU for read­ing this magazine – with­out you it wouldn’t be here, so thank you. One year on is the perfect time to re­view how things are go­ing at NA­DIA, what our goals are for the next year and how we’re go­ing to kick them. Since we’re do­ing it, we’ve in­cluded a work­shop on goal-set­ting for you too, in­clud­ing dif­fer­ent ways to work to­wards achiev­ing your as­pi­ra­tions – be­cause if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that there’s no rule book. The right way to ful­fil your goals, dreams or vi­sions is so dif­fer­ent from per­son to per­son. As long as you know your end des­ti­na­tion, there are many roads and routes that can lead to it – you’ve just got to find which one best suits you. Woohoo! Strawbs are just about back in sea­son. Some years I eat so many in one sit­ting that I get hives – true story. Check out page 50 for some de­lec­ta­ble straw­berry and rhubarb recipes. If you have kids, you might want to read our fea­ture on health­ier kids’ party food, but don’t worry – it’s still ut­terly yummy, of course! Wher­ever you are, what­ever you’re do­ing, I hope you’re en­joy­ing some spring sun­shine. Happy read­ing, cook­ing, dream­ing and goal-set­ting.
