  The winding down of the year always brings about a time of reflection for us— remembering everything we’ve done or accomplished in months past; looking back on turkey disaster stories, mornings watching the Thanksgiving Day parade or afternoons spent curled up on the couch after one too many pieces of pie; thinking of the people, experiences and things we’ve been blessed with in the last year.  It also provides us with time and opportunity—to create new memories, to slow down and spend purposeful time with one another, and to end the year on a positive, hopeful note. As we press pause on the hustle and bustle of life putting together a monthly magazine, we’re able to look back on the past year and, most meaningfully, the

TAKE ON SOMEONE ELSE’S CHORES Taking on a task that someone doesn’t have time to complete

or doesn’t particularly enjoy doing will absolutely inspire in them an attitude of gratitude! MAKE SOMEONE’S FAVORITE MEAL/DESSERT Breakfast, lunch or dinner; a whole meal, side dish or sweet treat—cook it, bake it  or special order it. The way to anyone’s heart is their favorite food!  PERSONAL GIFT Why wouldn’t you want those closest to you not to feel loved and appreciated?  Knowing  well  their likes, dislikes, desires, passions, talents, hobbies and favorites, you have the perfect opportunity to give a thoughtful, meaningful, uniquely chosen gift to them.  MEALTIME “THANK YOU'S” As you sit down to dinner, take time to go around the table and tell your family members what you appreciate about them in regard to either who they are or what they have done for you.

in your community RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS There are not enough of these gestures going around, and they can bring so much joy. All it takes is thoughtful awareness of those around you:  provide a teacher with supplies, leave unused toys and clothes or bags of groceries on the doorstep of family in need for them to find, take breakfast to the nurses at your local hospital or doctor’s office, drop off baked goods to your neighbor just because, mow your neighbor’s lawn, run an errand for an elderly neighbor who can’t get out easily, or let someone go ahead of you in line. The list is endless.  PAY IT FORWARD Leaving a larger than normal tip, taking care of the toll of the car behind you, paying for someone’s meal or coffee, and putting  coins in  surrounding  parking meters are easy ways to delight those you encounter.    SHARE/VOLUNTEER YOUR SKILLS Everyone has something they are good at (maybe expertly so!) or something they find passion and joy in doing. Contributing your writing skills to help write resumes,  your  photography skills to do free holiday family photos,  your love  of learning and children to be a classroom teacher’s helper, or your compassionate heart and open arms to  rock/hold/love  on  NICU babies will be a great blessing to those around you.  SIDEWALK NOTES Encouraging words and positive phrases to read as you walk are easy, sweet ways to add some extra sunshine to anyone’s day.  DONATE BLOOD/PLASMA What better way is there to give back than by giving the gift of life?  According to the American Red Cross, approximately 36,000 units of  red blood cells  are needed every day in the U.S.,  and nearly 7,000 units of  platelets  and 10,000 units of plasma are needed daily in the U.S. November 2019 | Naples Lifestyle

shopping and preparing for the large feast they will gather around and take joy in together. With an intense love for food, personal chef David Hill understands just how important it is to prepare a meal that caters to a holiday that not only encompasses specialty and seasonal dishes but also the importance of family as well.     David Hill grew up in Detroit, Michigan. His love for cooking began at a young age watching chefs on television and tasting the different flavors of local ethnic cuisine. In his early 20s, he decided to attend the culinary arts  program at Oakland College in Farmington Hills, Michigan. After finishing school and working countless hours in a variety of restaurants, David decided to leave his friends and family behind to move to Naples and build his career. He rose up quickly through the culinary ranks as he successfully learned and experimented with Floridian cuisine and discovered his calling when he was hired to be a family’s full-time private chef. Working for this Naples family for three years, he learned new ways of expressing himself with food creations, and after being let go because of the family’s financial hardship, he took a huge leap of faith and began marketing himself as a private chef.  This giant risk led to a great fan base and nine successful years of creating food that everyone loves!    “My job is to be able to make anything, to know all dishes of the world. I can shift my cooking to all different cultures or cuisines,” he says. The gourmet experience he provides uses the freshest and highest quality ingredients, which he shops for each day at The Fresh Market, and a private seafood supplier  before  arriving at client’s homes. The time and attention he dedicates  to each meal has won the love of locals and those traveling to the area, including famous movie directors, rock stars, supermodels  and athletes. Clients choose David for the quality and ease with which he puts together an event, the convenience

of getting to enjoy a gourmet meal without the hassle of finding an upscale venue that allows for the livelihood of their children, the quiet atmosphere where they can have conversations with one another without needing to shout or feel the floor reverberating sound under their feet, and the personal connection he offers as he shares his story and love of food. As his business continues to grow and get busier  with each passing year,  he  prides himself on answering his own phone calls instead of passing them off to a secretary, as well as being the sole chef to enter  each and every client’s residence.

The guy you see on the website is the guy who arrives at your home. I never send another chef in my place,” David says. As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, David is forever grateful for his transition from a corporate chef’s position into his private field of work, which continues to exceed his expectations.  He couldn’t be more pleased with his decision, especially as so many clients in Southwest Florida, particularly Naples, have opened their doors to him and allowed him to work some amazing dinner parties. On a more personal note, he is incredibly grateful for his wife, Johanna, and his little girl, Mila, who is almost 2. “My wife and daughter brought a larger picture to my life that I didn't have before. Having a supportive partner in life is  definitely a large part of my success. I’m not sure I could grow like I have without my wife.” He is thankful for his good health and positive outlook on life as both are contributing factors to his  successful  lifestyle, family  and career.  In expressing his gratitude, David shares  a few recipes from his Thanksgiving table  that highlight his culinary mastery and will hopefully add to your own savory spread this holiday.   November 2019 | Naples Lifestyle

EASY DIYS TO BRING FALL TO YOUR HOME

Naples Lifestyle | November 2019


Cinnamon Scented Pine Cones  MATERIALS + Cinnamon essential oil 

+ Disposable craft brush

+ Resealable food storage bag

+ Ground cinnamon

+ Small spray bottle

+ Airtight container (optional)

+ Clear dry craft glue METHOD 1: CINNAMON ESSENTIAL OIL SPRAY  01 Add about 20 drops of cinnamon essential oil and 1/8 cup of water to the spray bottle. Shake well.  02 Spray pinecones. 03  Put pinecones into resealable plastic bag and spray lightly with the solution. Shake the bag to help distribute the fragrance. Repeat this step 2 more times, making sure that all the pinecones have been sprayed. Take care not to overspray! You don't want them too wet. Seal and let fragrance infuse.  04 Finally, seal the bag and leave the pinecones to fully infuse the scent. We suggest leaving them for 4 weeks for maximum effect, spraying again with the oil solution again after 2 weeks.  Method 2: Ground Cinnamon and Glue  If you want instant results rather than waiting weeks, this glue-on method takes far less time—although a little bit messier!  01 Coat pinecones with glue.  02  Using the disposable craft brush, thoroughly coat one of the pinecones with a thin layer of glue. Work fairly quickly so that the glue remains tacky and doesn't dry out before the next step.  03  Sprinkle the entire glue-coated pinecone with cinnamon evenly all around and in between the crevices. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for all pinecones.  04 Remove the excess cinnamon by individually shaking each pinecone or placing all of the pinecones in a sealed container and shaking gently. Once the glue has dried, your cinnamon-scented pinecones are ready.   Directions from EHow.com. 

Canning Jar Lid Pumpkin MATERIALS + Canning jar lids of the same size

+ Burlap leaves

+ String

+ Spray paint (optional)

+ Cinnamon sticks METHOD 01 Optional: If you like the rustic quality of the tarnished gold and silver lids, you can skip this step. If you would prefer a more colorful look, spray paint the lids white or orange and let dry before continuing.  02 String together the lids, tying the string tightly.   03 Stick some cinnamon sticks in the center and added a couple of burlap leaves.  Directions from YellowBlissRoad.com/Canning-Jar-Lid-Pumpkin  CONTINUED >

Magnolia Pumpkin MATERIALS + Faux white pumpkin   + Faux magnolia leaves and blooms   + Glue gun  + Pencil  + Gold metallic paint pen  + Glitter, mini gold beads and glue (optional) METHOD 01 Pull off the flowers and leaves from the stem, arrange them like a bouquet, and then hot glue them to the top of the pumpkin. If the leaves get a little unwieldy, use the hot glue to make them stay where desired.   02  Optional: Glam it up! Add glitter or beads  to the middle of the flowers with some glue paste.  03  Optional: Add  a festive fall phrase with  hand lettering or a stencil. Sketch with a pencil on the pumpkin, using a magic eraser for erasing because a regular eraser leaves residue, and then trace with the paint pen as many times as needed to acquire your desired look.   Directions from  LollyJane.com/DIY-Magnolia-Pumpkin

Falling Leaves Garland MATERIALS + Artificial leaves 

+ Glitter

+ Paintbrush

+ Single hole punch

+ Elmer’s glue

+ Ribbon

METHOD 01 Use a paintbrush to apply Elmer’s glue to each leaf.  02 Sprinkle glitter over the leaf. Let the glue set and then shake off the excess glitter.  03 Punch a hole at the top of each leaf and attach a ribbon that you can tie to a large ribbon strand.  Directions from HouseOfJadeInteriorsBlog.com 

Give Thanks Picture Frame MATERIALS + 10 2-by-4-inch gift tags + Picture frame (example is 10 by 13 inches)  + Ribbon  + Mini clothespins  + Stick-on letters  + Strong tape or hot glue  METHOD 01 Remove the frame backing. Remove the glass and discard. You can choose to use the frame backing as the craft background or you can add a pretty piece of paper as the background by gluing or Modge-Podging it on the frame backing.  02  Attach stick-on letters to the gift tags. Make sure these are on tight. You may choose to use super glue to make sure the letters will not fall off.  03 Attach the gift tags to the ribbons with the mini clothespins. Make sure you space the gift tags out correctly so everything looks even.  04 Line up the ribbons where you want the tags to fall and then wrap the extra ribbon around to the back of the frame backing. Hot glue or use strong tape to connect the end of the ribbons to the back of the frame backing.  05 Close the picture frame like you normally would by pressing down the clips. This will connect the frame backing to the picture frame.  Directions from SincerelyJean.com/Give-Thanks-Picture-Frame

Naples Lifestyle | November 2019


PUMPKIN SPICE, APPLE CINNAMON AND A HOT CUP OF COCOA. Fall is all about getting warm and comfy as a chill hits the air—preparing yourself for winter, and cherishing those final moments of summer. As the nights grow longer, we’re embracing the Scandinavian secret of hygge by creating a space that emphasizes simple pleasures and finding joy in everyday moments—even when the weather is dreary. A burnt orange adirondack rug and woodland pillow set a ‘cozy cabin’ mood. Wicker baskets filled with apples and gourds are a reminder of the importance of the harvest, and a fun way to help teach young kids about the changing of the seasons. During this transitional time, light wood, fluffy blankets and scented candles beckon crisp autumn evenings, while a vase of fresh flowers—particularly mums—are an ode to the bright, sunny days we’re not quite ready to give up yet.

MUM’S THE WORD Mums’

and

long-lasting blooms are almost as much a marker of autumn as football, shorter days and cooler weather. Incorporate some warmer-color blooms into your decor for a fresh addition that’s reminiscent of changing leaves. AU NATURALE Wicker and natural materials like wood and jute are great ways to bring the outdoors in. Create a woodsy feel with dried flowers, natural wood accents and lots of baskets—great for storing your knit blankets!

PARTING THOUGHTS

Thanksgiving Gettin' together to smile an' rejoice, An' eatin' an' laughin' with folks of your choice; An' kissin' the girls an' declarin' that they Are growin more beautiful day after day; Chattin' an' braggin' a bit with the men, Buildin' the old family circle again; Livin' the wholesome an' old-fashioned cheer, Just for awhile at the end of the year. Greetings fly fast as we crowd through the door And under the old roof we gather once more Just as we did when the youngsters were small; Mother's a little bit grayer, that's all. Father's a little bit older, but still Ready to romp an' to laugh with a will. Here we are back at the table again Tellin' our stories as women an men. Bowed are our heads for a moment in prayer; Oh, but we're grateful an' glad to be there. Home from the east land an' home from the west, Home with the folks that are dearest an' best. Out of the sham of the cities afar We've come for a time to be just what we are. Here we can talk of ourselves an' be frank, Forgettin' position an' station an' rank. Give me the end of the year an' its fun When most of the plannin' an' toilin' is done; Bring all the wanderers home to the nest, Let me sit down with the ones I love best, Hear the old voices still ringin' with song, See the old faces unblemished by wrong, See the old table with all of its chairs An I'll put soul in my Thanksgivin' prayers.Â
