As November begins, we’re eagerly awaiting the approach of Thanksgiving, the holiday season and time spent with our loved ones.

The winding down of the year always brings about a time of reflection as the winter chill sets in and we retreat to the warmth of our homes.

We hope you enjoy this “Thankful” issue, remembering and reflecting upon the accomplishment of months past, thinking of the people, experiences and things we’ve been blessed with in the last year.

We are grateful for the opportunity to share stories and moments that occur in our community with you and wish you the very best this holiday season. We are also grateful to our advertising partners who make this all possible. Without their support, we would not be able to share so much of what makes our community so great and wonderful. Please reach out to them and let them know that their support is making a difference.

And finally, we would like to thank the many local writers, photographers and account managers who work tirelessly to gather the best of our community and share it with us all.

We hope that as you read this issue, you—like us—find inspiration in the lives and experiences of your neighbors and the connections that have been made.

Happy Thanksgiving, Boise.
