I love that song, and I love it even more when it’s my birthday month: September. September to me is the best month of the year, for a couple of reasons: 1. The birthday thing. 2. It marks the beginning of fall, which often falls on my birthday. So it’s kind of a win-win for me. And, it’s my birthday, just in case you hadn’t picked up on that!

Speaking of win-wins, this month’s issue is a win for all. There’s a bit of a focus on fall fashion, which should give the ladies some options for pulling through the rest of the year like divas. On the business front, I had the honor of emceeing the United Way Spark South Fulton Prize, which was a “Shark Tank” of sorts for entrepreneurs in SoFu. We gave away $20,000 in prizes to the top businesses. As an added bonus, we gifted the finalists with editorial about their businesses, so that you, the best and brightest in SoFu, could learn more about them to support! And for the little ones, we’ve got some “toys” with which they can play, or maybe you can take them to see a wolf or two (it will totally make sense as you flip through the pages).

So, I don’t have a birthday party planned yet. Any takers? I love white chocolate cakes from CEO Custom Cakes, so feel free to start there. A manicure from Opulence Nail Bar Boutique, and maybe some chicken and waffles from Milk and Honey for breakfast. Grilled salmon from Baltimore Crab and Seafood is a great way to finish the night off. You see where I’m going here—all of our businesses showcased in SFLM have great gifts for anyone, but especially me—on my birthday! Okay, I think I’ve made my point!
