Beyond the trappings of Valentine's Day, our February issue will help you feel the love: From newfound family compassion while traveling abroad through Jennifer Spatz's family travel program, to developing a passion and dedication toward music and art, and even tweens learning how to love and take care of their changing bodies, this month's issue covers it all. 

Our feature, Racism, tackles the struggles — as well as solutions — that Seattle families of color are faced with on a daily basis. It also offers information and tips on how families of color can start a dialogue, build community and spread the love through the coming year!

From our heart, to yours!
