Dear Reader,

Spring has sprung! As we leave the cooler months behind and look ahead to longer, sunnier days, fresh blooms and new life, we remind ourselves to pause and take in the beauty that surrounds us. There is no better way to begin a new season than with a grateful heart and an abundant mindset.

And there is so much to be thankful for – especially among the themes featured in this issue. On pages 18-21 we highlight homes within Exclusive Communities; those that offer private amenities and coveted addresses. Warm-Weather Retreats grace pages 38-41 and offer an idyllic setting for everyday life or special second-home occasions.
