Can I be honest with you? Getting this issue completed was extra challenging. In fact, writing this note to you was something I kept putting off because my frustrated brain had writers block. Between deadlines falling right around the holidays (yes, we work very far ahead!) and simultaneously finishing up our once a year magazine, Forsyth Community… it was a lot. I was grumpy. I was irritable.
I had to take a step back and think about why we’re doing all of this in the first place.
What is the purpose behind Forsyth Woman Magazine? Why does our team have so much passion, energy, love, and joy for this publication? It’s because we love being a positive light for our community when life can be hard and the news can be negative. We love connecting women and businesses of all walks of life. We love engaging with the amazing people in and around Winston-Salem.
And for this, I am incredibly grateful. The word “grateful” doesn’t even sufficiently describe how I feel. I’m beyond grateful. THANK YOU for picking up this magazine each month. And if this is your first time readingForsyth Woman—welcome to the Forsyth Mags family! We’re so glad you are here!
February is an exciting month! For starters, we have an extra special Girls’ Night Out! It’s a Galentine’s Party!!! Bring your best gals to Village Inn on Thursday, February 10th. Food and drink specials, a photo booth, tons of door prizes… you won’t want to miss it. Learn more HERE.
We’re also well into planning our first-ever Women on the Move leadership conference! This event will take place on Monday, March 28th at WinMock. We’ll have eight engaging presentations from nine local ladies, shopping with local vendors, networking, food, drinks, tons of fun photo ops, and so much more.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the Forsyth Mags Foodie visited Black Mountain Chocolate! I had the pleasure of joining her and all I can say is OMG. Run—don’t walk—to go grab yourself a chocolate chunk cookie. The absolute best cookie I’ve ever put in my mouth. Pair it with their signature chocolate martini and you’ve got yourself the perfect Valentine’s—or Galentine’s date night! Read all about Black Mountain Chocolate!
Wishing you the best February and I hope to see you at our Galentine’s Party on February 10th!
