The definition of thanksgiver is one that gives thanks. And with this being the November issue, I want to be a thanksgiver all month long. In fact, there are many things to be thankful for as we close out 2022.

First and foremost, as a community, we are definitely thankful that hurricane Ian missed our beloved island, because we’re all thankful to be living in such a wonderful place. It’s great to travel, but there is nothing like that feeling when you cross the Frederica River onto St. Simons Island. There is a reason many people come for a visit but end up becoming a “local.” While we were fortunate to be spared, many communities in Florida will take years to get back to normal. I would encourage EIL readers to donate anything they can to help our neighbors to the south of us.

On a personal note, I am very thankful to be celebrating 20 years of publishing Elegant Island Living. I’m thankful for the EIL family. The EIL staff strives hard to bring you a product that we can all be proud of each month. I’m thankful for all of the wonderful businesses who advertise in EIL, as well as you, the readers, who support EIL by shopping with our advertisers. I’m thankful for my family. Like many of you, we dealt with some health issues and are ending 2022 stronger than ever. I’m thankful for the many friends in my life who constantly encourage me to be the best version of myself.

How can we practice being a thanksgiver in November? Even practicing ONE act of thanksgiving each day adds up. At the end of the month, that’s 30 acts of thanksgiving. Multiply that by everyone you know and we’ll all have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
