November Holiday Gifts & Events 2015 Sponsored by Rhea Lana's

Can you believe we’re in November already? It’s hard for me to imagine that Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner though my kids keep reminding me that Christmas is NOT coming soon enough for them! Since we know many of you are planners, we are bringing you our Holiday Gifts and Events Issue in November. But if you need more time, don’t worry. It’ll be featured in December too. These guides provide unique gift ideas for all the special people on your holiday list and fun events that are sure to become family traditions.

Since we celebrate Thanksgiving this month, I have an experiment for you. Keep a record the entire month of how many times in a day you thank someone. This would be fun to do with your kids too. Don’t force a “thank you” but genuinely mean it. Total your results on the 30th then determine if you need to express gratitude more often. Thanksgiving Day is an easy day for us to say “thanks” but shouldn’t it be the norm rather than the exception? Let’s practice true appreciation more than once a year. I think Ralph Waldo Emerson said it well. “Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”

With that being said, we thank Rhea Lana’s for sponsoring this issue and for continuing to provide the best children’s consignment event venue in NWA. We are honored by their partnership. Their fall sale is November 8-12 at 1106 N. Old Missouri Rd, Springdale (previously National Home Center). Take your Christmas list…you’ll find fabulous clothing, toys, baby equipment, furniture and more all in one location! Holiday shopping made easy.

For more fun and convenient shopping, plan to attend the NWA Boutique Show, November 6th & 7th at the NWA Convention Center in Springdale. They’ll have over 150 one-of-a-kind boutiques including home and holiday decor, clothing, gifts, gourmet food, children’s items and much more. While you’re there, be sure to stop by our booth so you can register for our giveaways and take fun pictures at our photo booth provided by Oh Snap!

Happy Thanksgiving NWA!

November 2014 Holiday Gifts & Events Guide

The month of November is a time of remembering all we have to be thankful for. Unfortunately it’s easy to get so busy with life and miss out on simple joys that surround us everyday. Our hearts are especially tendered as we share with you this beautiful cover story of Ella Kate’s adoption. November is also National Adoption Month so Ella Kate being featured is a perfect way to help raise awareness for children in need of adoption. We hope it encourages you to remain steadfast to your calling & count each moment as a gift. Special thanks to Emily for sharing her story & to Farmland Adventures in Springdale for allowing us to use their location for the photoshoot!

Speaking of holidays, this Holiday Gifts & Events Issue is filled with the best gift ideas & holiday events. Maybe you have a Lego enthusiast, an aspiring artist or thespian, or a sports fan. Or maybe your girly girl only dreams of the latest fashion or dance lessons. No matter what, you’re sure to find unique gifts they’ll love within these pages. Remember too to plan time for the special events in NWA during this season.

As always, we are grateful for our advertisers & readers & we wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!!
