Hats off to Hay­ley

NEXT (New Zealand) - - Community - Deanna Kloost­er­boer

II al­ways en­joy los­ing my­self in your mag­a­zine each month, but your June is­sue has to­tally made my day. As a Nicky Pel­le­grino fan (se­ri­ously, I’ve just read four of her books in the past three weeks), I loved read­ing her ar­ti­cle on Hay­ley Holt. Hay­ley sounds amaz­ing and I look for­ward to see­ing her fresh take on things as she helps shake up NZ a lit­tle. She’s got a lot of guts and I think open­ing up about her strug­gles just shows how strong she is and how ready she is to take this next stage of life on. It takes courage to lay our weak­nesses in front of oth­ers. For those of us who have over­come strug­gles in our lives, watch out world... we’re the ones who will forge a trail in­stead of walk­ing the path of oth­ers be­fore us.

I also ap­pre­ci­ated the travel piece on Florence as I’m head­ing there in Au­gust with my hubby. For our 10th an­niver­sary we’ll be trot­ting around a few spots in Italy but I’ve al­ways been ex­cited about Florence, so read­ing a lit­tle about it got me all ex­cited! Read­ing Nicky’s books has sparked a keen in­ter­est in try­ing ev­ery­thing ed­i­ble while I’m over there too...

So thanks for an­other great and in­spir­ing is­sue!
