Birthday celebrations and goal-setting with our editor at large
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.
