The holiday issue of Prince William Living magazine is one of my favorites. It’s loaded with fun and inspirational things to do, local treasures to discover while shopping, places to celebrate the season and ways to give back during this festive time. That’s why in this month’s feature article, we’ve highlighted big happenings you won’t want to miss. Go beyond the calendar and learn what you have to look forward to in the streets, in the shops and more. You’ll want to bring your whole family to join in the merry making.
Speaking of shopping, you’ll definitely want to take a peek at Destinations. We’ve got the scoop on local boutiques offering one-of-a-kind gifts. Check them out and consider buying a gift for your loved one — or yourself!
While we’re talking about giving, let’s discuss this month’s Giving Back. You’ll read how some special dogs and special people are making big differences in the lives of veterans. Dig deep into Semper K9 Assistance Dogs and learn why they’ve become such a big deal in our area and how giving has quickly become a tradition of service.
Don’t feel like you’ve got holiday traditions of your own? Or maybe you want to add to the ones you have. Our Family Fun section offers some suggestions designed to bring your loved ones together each year, making memories to last a lifetime.
Next, it’s all about food. We’ve got a yummy recipe in Home and Hearth. Learn how to make a unique side dish that could also be used for a main course. Then, take a hop over to Local Flavor where we highlight Ben Jin’s Asian Bistro. It’s a place where delicious and healthy meet.
Finally, let’s start planning for the new year. In Finance, you’ll learn about a tax law that affects you once you turn 70.5. In Lifelong Learning, discover new ways to express yourself like a pro — learn public speaking from Toastmasters. And in Taking Care of Business, we unveil the secrets of layered marketing and explain why a combined approach is so effective.
We hope you enjoy our December issue, the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and the rich culture we treasure in this area we call home. Happiest of holidays to you and your loved ones. And may you find the merry all year round.
