About gmhToday

gmhToday is a full-color, upscale community magazine that highlights all things Gilroy and Morgan Hill. Since 2006, gmhToday has been connecting the South Santa Clara Valley with fascinating features, relevant advertisements and current stories that inform and ignite our community. We believe this community is an amazing place to live and raise a family — gmhToday celebrates that.

The magazine is published every other month, direct mailed to subscribers and advertisers and distributed FREE to over 250 locations through the communities of Gilroy, San Martin and Morgan Hill.

The journey began in 2006 with the first issue of Gilroy Today. For over eight years, our quarterly Gilroy Today magazine was sought after, read and shared throughout the community. In 2013, the first issue of Morgan Hill Today was published at the urging of our supporters. With the overwhelming acceptance of the new magazine, we realized that the best way to continue to grow was to unite the two magazines to celebrate this area that is rich in community, activities and stories of achievement and challenges.

As GM of Cochrane Road Self Storage, I evaluate all our advertising endeavors and decide with whom and how we should continue. gmhTODAY stood out as a publication that embraced the community editorially while serving as a venerable positioning vehicle for our messaging and product.

People Talking

I recently began teaching memoir writing at Gavilan College Community Education. Last night was the last meeting of the advanced course, and I don’t know how else to say this except to get kind of woo-woo on you: Magic happened in that room.

I’m pretty open about my struggles with anxiety. I have good days and bad days, and a little daily dose of Lexapro goes a long way for me. But I don’t like to simply rely on the medication to fix me. My well being requires a commitment to self-care, healthy living, and sleep, and yes, a daily medication.

 

Last night was my first time at the South County Young Professionals Network. SCYPN (the cool people pronounce that as “skippin” FYI) is a new-ish dynamic group of professionals who are young or young at heart. Last night’s event was their second annual Oktoberfest/Costume Contest at the Running Shop and Hops in Morgan Hill.

 

What a couple of weeks it’s been. Not only is California on fire and Las Vegas is grieving, but I got news in my personal world that has shaken me to my core and made me wonder if there is anyone worth trusting. 

Run for the Roses

On Saturday Gilroy Gardens hosted the annual Day in the County event for the Gilroy Foundation. For 38 years the Foundation has held A Day in the Country event. This year’s was one of the best!

Themed after the Kentucky Derby: Run for the Roses, guests filled the Garden pavilion. Gilroy Gardens might have a wide selection of hats for sale but this event brought out the finest bonnets the Gardens has ever seen.

Three root canals and five fillings. That’s the amount of dental work my 4-year-old recently needed.

THREE ROOT CANALS AND FIVE FILLINGS. AT FOUR YEARS OLD. 

 

Fall traditions are a special thing. When the the air reaches its signature autumn crispness, my family always try to make one trip to a pumpkin patch, take a walk in the changing leaves, and bake an apple pie. Also, last fall, if you happened to pass my house, you would have seen scenes from various Roald Dahl stories come to life with large, round, orange heads. If it sounds insane, I guarantee you that only a small amount of madness was involved.

The other night, I left the kids with my husband and went out with a couple of my closest girlfriends. This is a rare luxury in the life of a parent of two small children. (Where are my fellow parents? Can I get an Amen?) I put on my best pair of black cutoff shorts and dressed them up with a chambray button down and finished off the look with bright pink lipstick. (Why am bothering to tell you what I’m wearing?

My older daughter Georgie began her second year of preschool this week. I love that her preschool teacher believes in letting the little ones have a full summer--school is out before Memorial Day and doesn’t go back until after Labor Day. She might be the only one in the area who does that, but it works for us.

 

I see a lot of stuff on the Internet about kids these days. I see lists of things Millennials are killing. I hear grumbling about how young people today don’t know the value of the dollar, or how their eyes are always glued to a screen, or how they’ll never move out of their parent’s houses.

I also sometimes see negative commentary about our local youth. How they drive too fast, swear in front of our kids at Starbucks, loiter in public parks, or play music too loud from their headphones in the library.
