Serving as Guest Editor for Down East, the Magazine of Maine

As many you know, one of my favorite places to visit is Maine, where I have a very special home named Skylands on Mount Desert Island.

Last year, I was invited to serve as Guest Editor of the April/May 2017 issue of Down East, a wonderful magazine illuminating the culture, food and spirit of Maine. I was truly delighted with the opportunity to share my stories, thoughts and inspirations with its readers - I have so many fond memories of my time there - hiking the trails of Acadia National Park, visiting the area gardens, restaurants and shops, and restoring my beloved and historic home. 

If you haven't already seen the issue, I encourage you to pick up a copy today if you can - it is on regional Maine newsstands through May 23rd. I want to thank the entire Down East team for all their hard work - in particular, Down East Special Projects Editor,  Sarah Stebbins, and Earle Shettleworth Jr., one-time president of the Maine Historical Society, author of "Mount Desert Island: Somesville, Southwest Harbor, and Northeast Harbor” and "Bar Harbor,” and Maine State Historian. And, thanks to longtime member of my team, Senior Brand Relations Manager, Kimberly Dumer, for all her contributions. Enjoy this photo gallery and the spring edition of Down East.
