Raw Chocolate for the Soul….enough said….

Steven Lambeth’s sweet creations are a thoughtful pleasure (chocolate with intention!) first motivated by a lost love, a girlfriend who loved chocolate.

What do a Library and the Five-Star General Store Have in Common?

Roots run deep, to land we love, and through time, families, neighbors, and communities. Roots of knowledge, learning, and memories also run deep, generationally, and are linked to the places where we land and the people and places we love and remember. Places we like to be. Recently I read an article called Raleigh’s 50-ft Librarian by Scott Huler in Our State magazine (2014). Huler wrote about NC State’s Hunt Library, in west Raleigh, which opened in January 2013 at a state cost of about $115 million.  “Think...
