A Wel­come from the Edi­tor

- Rachel Hardage Bar­rett

If you have a brother or sis­ter, you know that sib­ling ri­valry is a very real thing. My younger sis­ter and I of­ten jok­ingly com­pete for “fa­vorite daugh­ter” sta­tus— although she has a lit­eral home field ad­van­tage by liv­ing in my par­ents’ Ten­nessee home­town. Of course, sib­ling ri­valry (and rev­elry) is part of any fam­ily gath­er­ing: Look no fur­ther than the famed March sis­ters of Lit­tle Women (pg. 68). So at Coun­try Liv­ing, we have of­fi­cially upped the com­pet­i­tive ante and em­braced gin­ger­snap sea­son as a sport with Hol­i­day Bak­ing Team base­ball tees (store.coun­tryliv­ing.com). Avail­able in two team colors and adult and kids’ sizes, the ap­parel is sure to spark spir­ited fam­ily com­pe­ti­tion. (You are go­ing down, Katie Hardage Pen­land.) If you do bat­ter up, be sure to take a team photo and tag me (@rachel­hardage­bar­rett. It may ap­pear in a fu­ture is­sue!). And re­mem­ber:

The real win­ners are the ones who do the taste test.
