Today is my favorite holiday. It’s not just the food (although as you read this, my turkey will already be roasting, Mom will have made the pies, and my house will smell amazing), the (hours of!) prep work, the parade on in the background…it’s the truly quality time with family and friends from near and far. It’s one of the few days of the year when we all collectively agree to hit pause, to take a moment to relish our connections, and be thankful for what really matters…our health, our happiness, and the communities we build to sustain these things.
Community is so important to us at Alexandria Stylebook. We started several years ago as way to stay connected with our customers — smart readers like you who love our locally owned small businesses – to share fashion and lifestyle tips, insider beauty secrets, health and wellness guidance, and we are honored and charmed to have become a small part of your daily routine.
So from all of us at Stylebook — me, the editor, Sarah, the creative director, and all of our crazy-talented contributing writers, whose businesses are such a vital part of our vibrant Alexandria community — thank you, thank you, thank you. Enjoy your day. Hug your family. Cuddle your kids. Eat well. Rest. And get ready to take advantage the fantastic, local Black Friday and Small Business Saturday deals you see below.
