Weekly Publisher Note, March 21-27. 2021

March 21, 2021

Hello all,

Sunshine and 60's all week. Not much to complain about with the weather right? How are you all doing? We have been filling up the calendar with both virtual and in person events and while Covid is still a thing, businesses are trying their best to create events that can accomodtate social distancing. I applaud them all and it has been so nice that we have all continued to support the businesses in our community. Spring has sprung and summer is right around the corner. 

Do you know what that means? Summer Camps! Yes, summer camps for the kids. All have been redesigned to account for safety measures and social distancing. The kids so deserve a change of pace and some activities to extend and enhance their educational journey. We have art camps, outdoor farm camp, and more. Be sure to check them out and check back often as we will continue to add camps as they come in. 

"Spring will come and so will happiness. Hold on. 

Life will get warmer."


Hi, I'm Erika.  I'm originally from New England and moved to Carlsbad almost 5 years ago.  My family and I are enjoying the weather, laid back beach community and lots of family fun here.  When I am not watching my son's hockey games, or dance routines, you will find me exploring tidepools at the beach with my family.

Hi, I'm Jodi. I am the mom to 3 adults (1 son and 2 daughters), 2 grandsons and 2 dogs (a Labradoodle-Jeter and a Goldendoodle-Diggs). I love spending time with them and you can typically find us together playing Cribbage or Carbles on the weekends. I am a hockey mom through and through. I have been to many states traveling with my family to watch my kids/grandkids play hockey, I love to support my kids and I love all the fun local events. I look forward to helping Erika.
