This month’s issue of Augusta Family is our back to school guide. Find helpful information on back to school traffic safety in our Safe Kids Fast Fact column, gather tips on 16 back to school traditions to start this year or get ideas for making a time capsule to capture your child’s back to school memories.

We also have helpful stratgegies to get organized in the kitchen  to help you plan out nutrious meals for busy school nights. You can find these tips in our Smart Mom’s Guide column.

To say I am thrilled to bring back our Mommy Makeover feature is an understatment. We had such an overwhelming response to requests for submissions for Mommy Makeover that is was truly uplifting. I couldn’t be more pleased to have the opportunity to gift makeovers to these special women in the area.

This month, local mom, Jennifer Hurst was selected to receive a full day of pampering complete with a massage, outfit, hair and makeup.

Kudos to the individuals who reached out to nominate their wives, sisters, daughters and mothers and special thanks to the generous and kind-hearted business owners who rose to the occasion to help Augusta Family with our Mommy Makeover.

Thanks to D.J. Williams and staff with D.J. & Company Salon, Spa & Gifts, also to Molly Senn and staff of fab’rik Augusta and Carolyn Bailey with Rock n Rose Massage and Bodywork for sharing their talents and supporting the cause.

Each one of these local business owners, without hesitation offered to gift their products and services to help our special mommy feel her best. That’s kindness in action!

Moving forward, if you want to be a part of our upcoming Mommy Makeover or know someone who deserves a special day, email me at

Until September,

Renee Williams
