Are You a White Rabbit? 

There is an ongoing conversation in this office about tardiness. Are there certain people in your life who are always keeping you waiting? Or are you the person who is constantly running to get from point A to B on time?

As a Type A person, I find it extremely disrespectful of my time when someone consistently fails to arrive on time. I know things happen (traffic, unexpected phone calls, etc.) and we can’t control every eventuality, but it does seem to me that it is the same people making me wait. As I’m waiting impatiently, I have time to think about what it is that makes them tardy:

Do they think they can do things faster than everyone else? (God Complex?)

Do they not have a watch? (Maybe I should buy them one for their next birthday.)

Are they not in control of their own transportation? (I’m not buying them a car.)

Are they so self-involved that they have absolutely no concept of the inconvenience they are causing others. (Why is this person allowed in my life again?)

They’ve never had to suffer any consequences from frequently making others wait. (Hmmmm.) 

I’m putting this out in the universe because I am genuinely curious. So, please write to me and share your thoughts, whether you are the tardy one or the one who is irritated by being inconvenienced.

My friend Julie and I were discussing this, and she said, “I think people who are always late just don’t have much going on in their lives. If I was late, my kids would be late to their appointments and school, my husband would be late to his job, the dog wouldn’t get let out on time … so I can’t be late. Because if I am, everything spirals.”

Now that I’ve gotten those deep thoughts off my chest, let’s talk about how this is the best issue of the year. It’s dedicated to Arts + Music, with musical features on the Horan Brothers, Connor Hollifield and Emanuel Ayvas. Becca Edwards dives into how music can affect our mood (page 55). Susan Ballard shares the story of how COVID made her an accidental artist.

We kick off the issue with a fashion spread photographed in Savannah, featuring some of our favorite local boutiques and their new fall fashions. I know technically you aren’t supposed to wear white after Labor Day, but I love this dress by Kelly Caron Curated so much, I’m breaking all the rules.

The October issue is also the second of two big “home” special sections, and we went all out with not one, not two, but three big house features in Palmetto Dunes and Palmetto Bluff.

Enjoy my most favorite month, full of fall festivals and pumpkin spice lattes.

Editor’s Note: May 2024

Every time we do a MomPreneurs issue, I am in awe of the women we feature. As I watch them wrestle (and negotiate) with little ones during photo shoots, I think about how much effort it took them to show up looking like a million bucks. And they are simultaneously...
