Volume 10 (Grow), Spring 2023
Oh how much we’ve grown … and how far we’ve come! House and Leisure launched in October 1993. Fast-forward to this year (and thousands of stories later), as we celebrate 30 years of milestones, memories and moments. More mature and a little wiser, yet always learning from those around us, we’re still looking at the world with eyes wide open and exploring it with a sense of childlike wonder. We turned the pandemic into a chance at a second life, fully embracing our newfound status as a comeback kid, and proudly wearing the label of ‘lockdown baby’. We might have a fresh appearance, but we’re certainly no newbie. Over the past three decades, we’ve been committed to exploring the world we live (and work) in, out in the field, connecting with the most incredible people and encountering their stories to bring you every edition of House and Leisure. This very edition is proof of that. It’s a curated field guide of sorts, filled with the many people and places we’ve encountered as curious storytellers.
