Happy November! I can’t believe how quickly 2014 is coming to an end. And then it’s going to be 2015, which sounds like a year from the future.
November is an awesome month for a lot of reasons. For one, it started off with the end of daylight savings time, and we all got an extra hour of sleep this weekend. What other month can give you that? Plus, so many of my favorite people have November birthdays, like our editor Kaleigh, and my dad and my sister. If you have a birthday this month, you’re in excellent company. AND it’s Thanksgiving, the holiday that’s all about dinner.*
I’m especially excited about Thanksgiving this year because, for the first time, I’m hosting it! I love to cook, and I love to set a pretty table, so I’m treating this first Thanksgiving as the ultimate test of my domestic abilities. To help me nail it, and to help us all perfect our party-making skills (whether you’re hosting Friendsgiving, bringing dessert to you aunt’s house for Turkey Day, or throwing a holiday cocktail party), this month we’re focusing on entertaining in style. We’ll have tips from top party planners and stylists, recipes that impress, lists of kitchen gadgets every proper hostess should have, and lots more.
*I know, it’s also about gratitude. So I’m going to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU for reading L&C! You helped us break another traffic record last month, and we’re so happy you are finding something fun, inspiring, or informative to read on the site.
