ovember ushers in the holiday season and reminds us to be thankful for friends, family and other blessings in our lives. For many of us, the holidays are a time to continue traditions and share them with new acquaintances. A November tradition for Houston House & Home is celebrating the magazine’s anniversary. November 2012 marks our 18th year. We are proud to be the only monthly magazine in Houston devoted to resources for the home. From new construction to remodeling, interior design to landscaping and more, we are thrilled to bring you inspiring ideas and solid advice for your home, inside and out. We wouldn’t be here without the support of our advertisers, so this November, and every month of every year, we are thankful for their continued support. We know you’ll find our advertisers provide goods and services designed to make your home more beautiful, functional and durable for years to come. We’re also thankful for the talented professionals in our area whose outstanding projects and expert insights help make our articles exciting and useful, to you, our readers. And thank you, dear reader, for picking up Houston House & Home each month at your local Kroger, and H-E-B stores.

We are honored to be a part of your home-improvement endeavors. A tradition we started in the fall of 2007 is spotlighting pets looking for good homes. We are proud to help the Houston SPCA place dozens of pets into loving homes. Now that’s home improvement! Another proud tradition at HH&H is collaborating with the Houston Heights Association on their home tours. This year we have featured one of the homes on their Holiday Home Tour, the Parrish/Bublewicz home. For Allysa Parrish and Michael Bublewicz, this four-bedroom home with the soul of a 1920s cottage is the home of their dreams. Additional articles this month include holiday entertaining ideas based on local interior designer Anne Breux’s reflections of her recent travels in France. Plus Joetta Moulden’s Before & After column includes delightful seasonal touches to light up your home with holiday spirit. Thank you, Houston, for 18 years! Here’s to beautiful living and timehonored traditions! Sandra Cook Editor scook@houseandhomeonline.com Like us on Facebook Twitter: @househomemag HOUSTON
