From Left: Nota Bene Boutique; Wings for Success Fashion Show
Favorite special event: Best of the Main Line is one of our favorite parties. Also, Wings for Success does a great fashion show. The organization is a nonprofit that provides career clothing for women in need. They get notable people in the community to be models, and they dress a few clients.
Best restaurant in the area: McKenzie Brew House in Malvern. I love the menu. They change it regularly, and the people there are friendly.
From left: Chester Valley Trail; Linvilla Orchards
How she stays fit: I exercise by walking my dog two or three miles a day. He’s a Springer Spaniel named Jonah—and he rules the world. Before my husband passed away, he was the one who took Jonah on long walks in the morning and the afternoon. I’m doing the best I can to keep that up. Jonah and I walk on the Chester Valley Trail, and the community I live in has a number of its own trails.
Where she shops for groceries: Wegman’s in Malvern, where you can get pre-made meals. To tell you the truth, after
I get through the workday and walk the dog, the last thing I want to do is cook.
Favorite thing to do with grandkids: Linvilla Orchards is one of our favorites. We love all its activities, especially the pumpkin picking and hayrides. I have a little granddaughter, Mallory, who’s 7 years old. She comes to [my place] once a week and spends the night with me.
Best chance to get stuck in traffic: Route 30 near the Farmer’s Market in Strafford. It’s just awful … all the time.
Coolest thing about living on the Main Line: So many wonderful boutiques. I sold my home last week and moved into a smaller space. It’s been wonderful to visit shops and blend new things with my old things.
