Last year my husband and I went to Green Bay (and saw a lot of you there too!) to see some old favorites at the “I love the 90’s” concert. The big closing act was Vanilla Ice rapping “Ice, Ice, Baby”! Fast forward 20 years to now … and those words take on new meanings. This month brings us to our last child getting her driving temps. She’s the first child to get them in winter, and I’m sure it’s going to be a different experience driving around with her than it was with the other two. From my motherly perspective, there are all kinds of extra horrors on the road for her to be aware of: black ice, freezing drizzle, snow plows … besides learning the rules of the road. Wish us all luck!
Another thing I don’t remember from 20 years ago was worrying about slipping on the ice. Recently I was out with some ladies for lunch, and when we left everyone was pointing out the ice in the parking lot. You’ll be glad to know none of us broke our necks walking to our cars. (I don’t think it helped when I reminded them that falls are the No. 1 reason people go to the emergency room!)
This month we are celebrating heart health. Dr. Carrie Chapman has been a spokeswoman for several years in Northeast Wisconsin about how important it is for all of us. Open up and read her story on page 20 to get to know her a little better. You will also see fun trends in weddings inside this issue, and if you think your lips are too thin … we have a story for you on page 14. I hope you enjoy all the stories in this issue!
And stay off the Ice, Ice, Baby.
