It’s a common phrase meaning that our homes are a central place in our lives—where we rest our heads, nourish our bodies and make fond memories with loved ones. It’s the epicenter of our worlds, where we start and end each day, and where we keep our most prized possessions. Home is also our community and the state we live in. This month, we bring you our Home issue, which is full of ideas for creating the best environment wherever you call home—whether it’s a cozy apartment, a spacious condo or a modest two-story house. With springtime upon us, there’s no better time for a little DIY project! Refresh your interior with a few new home decor accents or tackle one room in your home for a more dramatic update. This is also a good time to evaluate the outside of your homes health and beauty needs.

We were honored to meet with Governor Stitt at the state capital and learn about his plans for making our home, Oklahoma, a Top Ten State. We hope this issue inspires you to appreciate the place you call home—both your personal dwelling and our shared community—whether you’ve just moved or it’s a place your family has occupied for generations. Here’s to home sweet home!
