the joy of renewal

Unmarked calendar pages with crisp edges. A blouse that’s still creased from being folded in a gift box. Remembering to change the year when you write a check (if you still do). Although Christmas is resplendent with tinsel and glee, the new year serves up something far more spectacular: a clean slate. Any day can denote a beginning—especially with the right attitude and a decent breakfast—but the fresh start of January fuels both reflection and resolution. It’s a time to buckle down or lighten up. Another shot to get it right. And while a new year typically brings vows of wholesome food and blissful hobbies, at least for the first few weeks, the Naples metropolitan area has mastered the art of good living for the long haul.

three cheers

Since the Naples Children & Education Foundation uncorked the Naples Winter Wine Festival in 2001, the multi-event fundraising weekend, which unites the world’s most famous chefs, vintners, and sommeliers, has raised more than $176 million for underprivileged and at-risk children in Collier County. “I know how effective this festival is for helping young people in the Naples area, which is why we got involved,” says Linda Koehn of Des Moines, Iowa, who, with her husband, Tom, co-chairs the event with Jeannelle and Brian Brady. “Tom is also very interested in wine, and we enjoy making Naples our second home, so once we got involved, it just bubbled up from there.” Koehn, a former high school English teacher who later worked with students with special needs, says she long has been an advocate…
