Best of Suburbia 2017 Issue


From our Publisher : 

Dear Posh Readers,
It is 2017 and fall is right around the corner. I am feeling the seasons pass too quickly. The older I get, the more I want summers to last longer. I used to be so eager for school to start, to get back to routine, normal sleeping hours and my own sanity. This year I don’t feel the same. A few things to note: This summer I turned 45. My son turned 16 and my daughter will turn 11 later this year. Everything is moving too fast. I want to push a button and put things in slow motion. I talk about this every issue and slowing down is only getting more and more urgent. Speaking of slowing down, our area is doing anything but slow down.

One minute there is a building in the corner where there was once just trees. The next minute, world class cafes and stores are populating the once empty store fronts. I can’t keep up. For that reason, we tasked our favorite writer and photographer Traci Medlock with Lock and Co. to go out and find out what is new and what is cool. She presents her finds. Patricia Hall did an amazing job presenting the winners of our Best of Suburbia Survey. Thousands of you voted and with careful deliberation, research, in this issue we present you with the winner’s circle. We also updated our Top 30 Private School directory. Some new comers, and some classic go to schools that only get better as the years progress.

We love our teachers and educators and for that reason we selected some of the area’s finest contributors to our children’s education. I hope you enjoy this issue filled with great articles. Keep in touch and know we are always listening.

Love and sisterhood to all of our tribe,

Hulya Aksu,
