Recently we came across a quote that read “I’m loving life and life is loving me.” Never had we heard a better depiction of perspective on the enjoyment and fulfillment of life! What a fantastic way to summarize the amazing gift we have called “today”. As always, a common thread seems to weave its way through each Albany Living issue creating a unique and organic decorated canvas. This time is no different. The pages are full of not just stories, but instead hand-crafted journeys through people’s lives. Inside you will read about people who are making a difference, living with a purpose and following dreams as far as their heart can take them. These beautiful individuals and families are your family, your friends and your neighbors. They ARE Albany.

We are also thrilled to introduce you to a gorgeous spread inside called “Faces of Downtown Albany.” This project was created by Amy Rolfe with Dare Photography who has a passion to share the voices of the people of Albany and listen to what they have to say.

Albany is such a treasure. It’s not just a town to live in, it’s a home to love. Albany most certainly lives up to its motto of “where history and nature flow.” You can read about adventures to discover in the story “Nature’s Business” that highlights a favorite community outdoor sport perfect for everyone.

We thank you, Albany, for sharing your lives with us and we are so grateful to love life through you. We are also so appreciative of the continued support of the advertisers that make this possible. It is our joy to be able to continue to generously supply the area with copies of these magazines at absolutely no cost to you. On page 160 you will find a listing of these businesses. You may pick up your own personal complimentary copy at any of these locations! As always, we ask that you join us in thanking them and support them by shopping local and enjoying their services.

Keep on loving life, Albany, as it is certainly loving you!
