Turn School Lessons into Life Lessons

Think of the level of excitement a kid has opening birthday presents. Adding to the fun are pizza, birthday cake, noisemakers, and games-- quite a contrast to most days spent in a classroom. "Kids just don't get the same adrenaline rush memorizing a poem in school that they get from going to a party," says Russ Quaglia, director of the National Center for Student Aspirations at the University of Maine in Orono and author of Believing in Achieving.

That tropical feeling

Linda Cochran gardens on an island-- not a tropical one, but a cloudy, rainy patch on Puget Sound.

Cool, calm, & collected

"Style is a matter of positive attitude," says Barbara Smith. This restaurateur, television home-show host, and former fashion model ought to know. She's been working on her style and spirit since age 18, when she "gobbled up self-help books" for feel-good fuel to keep her knocking on the fashion world's notoriously sealed doors. Her spunk (not to mention beauty, poise, and height), paid off with a 1976 cover on Mademoiselle magazine, a role never before filled by an African-American. Today, Barbara widely swings open the doors to the home she shares with her husband, television producer Dan Gasby, and stepdaughter Dana (above receiving a secret from friend Kaimya).

Lived in Kitchens

Kitchens are leading full lives again, just like they did before family rooms were invented. No longer mere workhorse spaces for cooking meals and washing dishes, kitchens are practically members of the family, keeping us company as we savor the simple pleasures that give shape and meaning to life. How can your kitchen gain a more active role in day-to-day family life? Give it a flexible, people-friendly layout, then add lots of natural light, a palette of warm finishes, and comfy spots to perch on a stool or pull up a chair.
