“Can you believe the holidays are already upon us? I just got done painting four rooms in my new house, and with all the furniture currently piled up under drop cloths… I can tell you that I am not very prepared right now! I have some tidying to do before the end of this month. If any of you are in similar predicaments, we take a look at how to prepare for guests this holiday season, as well as how to be a good guest yourself, in this month’s issue.
There are also some great articles on a few remarkable local gals this month that you can’t miss: from a beauty blogger, to a 9-year-old inspiration to a few ladies who are hardcore bird watchers. One of my favorite memories as a child is watching the hummingbirds, orioles, cardinals, and many other birds outside the kitchen window at my mother’s bird feeders. I just got around to putting out my own bird feeder outside my office window, and I look forward to my first feathered visitors as soon as I stock it up with bird food.
I hope your holiday season is filled with many good memories and you are surrounded by the ones you love. Happy December! ”
