A Time to Be Thankful

November for me has always been about food and fun times with family and friends. Our family calendar is packed full of events, dinners, activities and get-togethers from now until the first of the year.

Not many things bring friends and family together like great food. In this issue, we are highlighting a few local chefs who have dedicated most of their lives to bringing people together through great food. We also added a few recipes to help you impress this holiday season.

November is also a month of reflection for me and a great time to review the year with all its ups and downs while ultimately realizing how much I am thankful for and how blessed we are to live in such a great community.

I want to thank some of our valued advertisers for sharing their personal family traditions they enjoy this time of year. Look for them in the pages that follow. It’s always nice to see how we all help and support each other from day to day. It’s a wonderful month to be thankful and share the many blessings we each have with our family, friends, neighbors and community.

Our 2017 Readers’ Choice awards are in full swing this month with our final voting round ending on November 30. Please visit BoiseLifestylePubs.com now to vote for your favorites of the 35 nominated businesses. We will highlight the winners of this year’s Readers’ Choice awards in our upcoming February issue. I know these businesses appreciate your supporting votes.

I wish you and your family the very best this holiday season. I am looking forward to our next issue which will feature a holiday gift guide with some great ideas to surprise our loved ones and show them how much we appreciate them.
