Thankful, Grateful, Blessed –

November is one of my favorite times of year.  To me, it’s the official start of the holidays, and I look forward every year to the festivities.  I love everything about the holidays. Decorations, movies, shopping, traditions, music, the food.  I love it all!  Like many, we have our holiday traditions, and it all starts with the decorations. We decorate for Halloween, we decorate for Thanksgiving, and we go all out for Christmas.

In the spirit of the Season, you will not want to miss our special ’Tis the Season section.  You will find lots of tips and ideas to help you through the holidays.  We have something for everyone starting on page 21.  You will want to be sure to check out our 20 Tips to Stay Healthy Through the Holidays, our Holiday Gift Giving Guide, and of course, we absolutely have the food covered.  Check out our great recipes for all of your entertaining needs,  and for a little fun, we have a special Thanksgiving Crossword for you.  We have you, your home and entertaining needs covered this holiday season!

And speaking of homes, recently I was invited into the home of Dr. John and Sylvia Zerwas.  What an amazing couple!  They were so warm and welcoming, and I greatly enjoyed talking to Dr. Zerwas about his love of Katy, his work in the community and experience representing District 28 in the Texas House of Representatives.  Be sure to read our cover story and get to know this great man.

Have an absolutely fabulous November! Take some time during the next month to enjoy this time with your families, count your blessings and soak in the holiday spirit.  Be sure to keep in touch and send us all  of your holiday events, photos and news.

Absolutely! yours,
