As the saying goes, time flies when you’re having fun. And time sure has flown by this year as we can’t believe we’ve put together the final issue of Hendersonville Lifestyle in 2019! It seems like just yesterday we were sitting down to write our January 2019 letter to all of you—talking about resolutions and renewal—and yet, here we are, almost time to do it again.

There’s a unique perspective that working in publishing brings. While we certainly don’t want to wish our lives away, we’re always looking toward the future. Whether it’s planning our next issue or developing story ideas for the next year, we’re often already fast-forwarded to future months before the current month has even begun.

The fast-paced lifestyle this industry calls for can often make it difficult to really settle down and absorb what’s going on around us and, before we know it, the year is over and it’s time to move forward again. I want to especially thank our Editor, Rick Murray for another year of hard work and commitment to telling the great stories of Hendersonville.  In addition, I also want to thank our corporate team for their help and commitment each month to our mission of providing you the very best.

So, this December, we hope that you take the time to slow down a little bit. With the holidays upon us, embrace the warmth and good cheer of the season. Enjoy your time with family and friends, bask in the magic of the winter season, reflect on past memories you hold closely in your hearts and keep the new ones you create in the present for as long as you can.

We’ll take your lead, and we can’t wait to see you next year!

Merry Christmas and happy New Year!
