Editors aren’t supposed to pick favourites, but if I did the St. John’s home on the cover of this issue would be high on my list. Peggy Stewart and Jack Kivlichan’s love for their heritage house shines through in all of the hard work they’ve put into making it their home. Writer Emily Deming got to know the couple and their home. Her story will make you want to sit down at their kitchen table with a hot cup of tea.
