Since 2008, VIE has been dedicated to sharing Stories with Heart & Soul with our readers. We want to spread the good news about people who are helping others, creating beautiful things, celebrating stunning places, and more. Inspiration abounds in our annual Goodness Issue, starring uniquely nostalgic artwork by Tammy Massey on the cover and in our feature story. Turn the pages or click through this issue’s stories online to discover charitable events coming up from Alaqua Animal Refuge and the Emeril Lagasse Foundation, art by Francisco Adaro and Trish Land, love and acceptance being served at Bitty & Beau’s Coffee, and much more. It’s all good!
