Letter From The Publisher
Thanksgiving is done, the Christmas lights are strung, and the time for New Year’s is approaching for us to ring in 2018. Before we welcome in the New Year I feel it’s time for us to pause and reflect on our accomplishments and blessings we’ve had throughout the year. This includes what we have to be grateful for, the lessons we’ve learned along the way and a time to set new goals for the coming year.
This holiday season may be more challenging for our communities and all of those personally affected due to the hurricane and still dealing with damages. My hope is that while reading through the pages of our Holiday Issue you will find stories of love, courage and hope. It’s always important for us to place uplifting stories in this issue to remind our communities of all the blessings we are surrounded with even when from the outside looking in they don’t always seem like blessings.
One way most of us share time with our loved ones during this time of year is around the dinner table. I’m thankful that our resident Southern Chef, Layne Prescott happily obliged on extending her column this time to share some of her holiday dishes with you. Be sure to tag us on social media when you try some of the beloved recipes from Layne.
The final wrap to the holiday season is New Year’s Eve. Local boutique, Amber Louise and Trending Threads was gracious in donating a few looks to get you ready for fun and festive gathering to kick off the New Year! Make sure to check out her boutique in Lake Placid and all of the fun ideas we have to dress to impress on your night out.
This is the time of the year we should be thankful for our families, friends, heath and mostly our blessings. I hope you look back on this past year and see all your many blessings, and ready to kick off the New Year with new adventures and resolutions that await you for the coming year.
I thank you for another year of your continued support of Heartland LIVING and we can’t wait for you to see what we have in store for you in 2018! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from our family to yours.
