Living the dream.

It was exactly three years ago when the first issue of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle arrived in homes. When I was in high school, I was editor of our school’s newspaper and dreamed of one day being a professional writer, but I never imagined I would have my own magazine. As I reflect on the past three years, my heart is filled with so much appreciation for everyone who helped me to fulfill a lifelong dream.

First, we would not be here without the support of our advertising partners. West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle is provided free to our readers each month thanks entirely to the support of our advertising partners. The best way for our readers to show their appreciation for West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle is to visit these businesses, thank them for their support of the magazine, and purchase their products and services.

I’d like to thank my incredible editorial team, led by my talented editor, Abbey Bradley. Our writers and photographers go above and beyond, enabling us to deliver amazing content each month. I am so blessed to have you all on our team!

I could never have taken the leap into entrepreneurship without the support of my family. To my husband and my sons, thank you for your patience, love and support through the ups and downs of this journey. Lastly, I’d like to thank our readers. We love hearing your feedback and stories of how this magazine has impacted you personally. Thank you!

This “thankful” issue focuses on a few in the community to whom we owe thanks, including our first responders, local non-profits and citizens who generously donate their time, talents and treasures. We couldn’t begin to cover everyone in the community who falls into one of these categories, but we’ve selected a few stories to spotlight this month. We also included some recipes to help with your Thanksgiving celebration.

Thank you all!
