Last year, on September 17, hearts all across the region collectively broke with the news of 12-year-old Landon Solberg's passing. While fighting a courageous battle with brain cancer, his final days impacted an entire community with his faith-driven strength and selfless compassion. Today, his foundation, Landon's Light, is on a mission to help other children battling medical conditions, either through financial assistance, or miracle moments calling on one of Landon's favorite pastimes; home remodeling projects. This month, we caught up with Landon's parents, Travis and Andrea Solberg, to see inside their very first project. Designed for six-year-old Tommy Calder, this Thomas the Tank Engine room serves as a hopeful reminder that even the littlest engine can tackle the biggest mountain.

I think of my home as more than just my sanctuary, it’s a reflection of my style and personality. So when planning for an outdoor gathering I wanted to bring the inside out, creating an extension of my home. The goal was to transport my small guest list to a backyard dreamland, creating multiple safe spaces to celebrate a small break from reality. When creating any gathering, ambiance is at the top of the list. I try to envision the perfect balance of décor, food, beverage and lighting. In this month's issue, I will show you how I pieced together an intimate getaway with thrifted decor, and of course, a fully stocked sanitation station.
