November/December 2022

Let the River of Love Cabins transport you to romantic bliss in Thackerville; wreaths from Wildflower at Heart in Duncan adorn homes with cheer; Castle Row Studios in Del City helps artists record hit songs, voices, and more; and Automobile Alley in Oklahoma City is worth a drive this holiday season.

Every meal at Flower Bluff Manor in Sulphur feels like a celebration; handmade treats throughout the state make great edible gifts; don't fuggedabout New York-style pizza in Broken Arrow and Bethany; and Et Al. in Tulsa is making the food service industry a little more chef-friendly.

Native hymns still resonate in Oklahoma; John Davidson is losing his sight but not his artistic drive; ukuleles are stringing Okie musicians along; poet Daniel Simon's "Field Notes"; and the Center of Family Love in Okarche lives up to its name.
