Savoring The Good Life - Locally

As many of you know, this summer I've had an internship with a local lifestyle magazine called Susquehanna Style.  First of all, I love my internship.  I love the work, the people, the experience, the events, the atmosphere, the fun, the everything.  So far this summer, I've been to a cover shoot and two magazine events.  Even though I only go into the office one day a week, it has been an amazing experience so far and I feel like I have learned a lot about how to effectively use social media (hopefully I'll be able to implement these skills into the blog a bit!)

Anyways, the slogan of the magazine is

The magazine features only local businesses, foods, restaurants, photographers, venders, etc, etc.  This has encouraged me to really take advantage of all of the things my local community has to offer.  Lancaster is actually a really extraordinary place.  Once you get past the Amish, manure, horse and buggies, and seemingly endless fields (which actually isn't bad...), it's easier to realize just how much we can take advantage of.

When I said the endless fields weren't actually bad...that's because if we didn't have the endless fields I wouldn't be able to share my favorite part of living the local life with y'all.

I have fallen in love with stopping at the roadside stands to pick up fruits and vegetables.  The best thing is when you go in with no expectations and come out with bags full of corn, eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes, and pretty much anything else your heart can desire.

How do you savor the good life - locally?


  1. There are so many hidden gems in every neighborhood. I like that the magazine you intern for gets them noticed! I should really look into what my neighborhood has to offer.
