Blue Ridge Life Celebrates 12th Anniversary Today : No Foolin!

[ 0 ] April 1, 2017 |

Blue Ridge Life Magazine has been a mom & pop since day one. Yvette and Tommy Stafford started the magazine on this very day 12 years ago on April 1, 2005. Eight years ago son Adam joined the gang. Six years ago daughter Peyton came along too!

The year was 2005. The date, April 1st. That’s when it all started. Nelson County Life Magazine was our charter publication that eventually expanded into Blue Ridge Life, and these days covers the Central VA Blue Ridge area.

We’ve been copied. Imitated, and on and on. We haven’t changed. It’s still just us. Mom and pop. Yvette and I started this magazine as a family operation a dozen years ago today. Fast forward to 2017 it’s still a family operation joined now by our son Adam in 2008 and daughter Peyton in 2010. We still live, work and play right here in the Blue Ridge, based in Nelson County.

We couldn’t have made any of this possible without your support. The readers. And we definitely couldn’t have done it without the support of our advertisers. Many of them that started on day one are still with us 12 years later to this very day. We thank you greatly for your continued confidence and friendship.

Lots has changed in this past 12 years. We haven’t. Though we’ve updated with the times, we’re the same people you got to know way back then.

We have an exciting announcement in the next few days, fitting for our dozen years here in the Blue Ridge. Stay tuned.

Until then, take a look back at some of the photos from year one.

We love you all and look forward to the next 12!

Tommy, Yvette, Adam & Peyton
