Mount Pleasant Magazine May/June 2022

Our family issue allows us to see community leaders through a unique lens when we might not get the chance to otherwise. It seems that colleagues know us at work, friends know us out on the town and family knows us at 6 a.m., trying to get out the door. Jeff at the office doesn’t know that Suzy loves to make her grandmother’s famous pecan pancakes for her twins. The twins don’t know that there was a time Suzy ate sushi with her girlfriends every Thursday night. Nobody knows Suzy runs a 200-page spreadsheet seamlessly, which keeps her entire company running. Everyone sees the view from where they sit. However, the family issue gifts us the chance to see from multiple vantage points, the way we all wish we could be seen all the time. In our features of “Families That Work,” you’ll get to look behind the curtain at people in your own backyard, and maybe see them in a different light. I’ve been a wife and writer for a long time. Now I’m the mother of 16-month-old baby girl and the managing editor of a magazine. People know me as that stuff…the main dinner party talking points. However, there are places where I’m still the former Friday night cheerleader rooting for the Jets or the daughter who used to try to make her dad laugh by dancing wildly while he was on business calls. Some people know me as the aunt who watches “Dr. Pimple Popper” with them or the girl who pours pickle juice on her chicken salad. It is human to want to be known, praised during the good and supported during the bad. That’s what this issue is about — it’s about really knowing the community. It is about relating to and inspiring one another. It is about intimacy with those with whom you live, work and play. And as someone who wears a whole lot of hats, I get it. To be seen, as a whole person, is everything. -Lorna Hollifield Managing Editor SCAN • CLICK SUBSCRIBE YOUR COMMUNITY, YOUR MAGAZINE MAY/JUNE 2022 C A L E N D A R O F E V E N T S • S M I L I N G F A C E S • O U T S T A N D I N G M O M S & D A D S Summertime Sips Wines for WarmWeather 0
