Enter the doors of Kavanna House in Spring Garden Township and the rumble of East Market Street fades as you’re greeted by the sounds of trickling water and soft music.
The rooms are painted in muted tones and adorned with nature-themed art and the following words: Believe. Inspire. Happiness. Faith.
Every upholstered chair and couch begs for you to sit a spell, wrap a blanket around you, drink in the calm and turn your thoughts inward.

Cheers to a fantastic night at The Yorktowne Hotel for the Smart magazine and FlipSide Happy Hour Saturday!
Flipside Editor Ashley May and I had a blast mingling with the more than 200 people who came out to kick off Restaurant Week York. OffCenter Grill fed our guests tasty hors ‘oeuvres and extended its happy hour specials to include two signature drinks, The FlipSide Blue Flip Flop and The Smartie Pants.

Happy Restaurant Week York
Before heading to your favorite local York restaurant, read these helpful tips on wine etiquette and the perfect wine and food pairings.
When dining out, the evening’s host/hostess (i.e. the person responsible for the bill) would select the wine. The host/hostess, as a courtesy, might pass the wine list around the table for suggestions and allow their guest(s) to select the first bottle.

After the cold, snowy winter we’ve had, I’m sure you’re looking forward to spring as much as I am.
Growing up, March and April meant hiking at the local state parks, running around the muddy backyard, fishing with Dad and planting flowers with Mom.
It was time to run off the extra energy we had after spending months inside.
It was the season to get moving.
Last year, we launched our No Sweat, York, campaign. Without sweating the small stuff, we encouraged folks to get stronger and feel better.
It was the season to get moving.

Maybe you want chocolate chips. Or walnuts. Toss in some M&Ms. Or even butterscotch chips.
Ooooh, what about pretzel bits? Just thought of that one. Do it. Please. For me.
Ugh, so good.
I made these blondies (with chocolate chips) while roasting chicken thighs and zesting lemons over broccoli.
It takes but a few ingredients, whipped up light, stir in your favorite mix-ins and bake for 20 minutes while you hop in the shower to get ready for work.

I had lunch with a friend from college this week.
Our conversations have become less about the gossip of who is doing what since our days at Millersville University, and more toward our upcoming weddings. Mine is in May. Her’s is the end of September.
Despite both being very excited for lives to soon enter the realm of wedded bliss, I couldn’t help but be concerned at the amount of stress she was under. Would the dress fit? What design should she choose for invitations? Would people be upset that she’s having a morning wedding? Continue reading
My girl was star-struck.
In the days leading up to the school assembly, she told me about this amazing woman she couldn’t wait to see.
She’s so cool, Mara told me. There’s a Disney movie about her life and she couldn’t walk or talk until she was 4 and she used to get in fights when she was a kid and then she went on to be in the Special Olympics and — the coolest part — she lives in York!
What’s her name, I asked? (Even though I had already guessed. After all, there aren’t many Yorkers who can say Disney made a movie about their lives.)
