Welcome to Families First Monthly
From The Heart
Fall is a favorite of mine because of the colors and transformation. At a time when nature’s palette are changing to tones of browns, grays, and dark greens the beginning of the season reveals brilliant blue skies with billowing white clouds-golden, purple, white, and burgundy mums-leaves of scarlet red, lemon yellow, and hunters orange, and all the varied shades of greens for their last hurrah until what remains is the deep evergreen to see us through winter’s white.
There are autumn harvest gatherings with cider and donuts. Holiday craft fairs, Halloween costumes and parties, and Thanksgiving.
This issue features Halloween and Thanksgiving stories as well as things Baby and more.
I am grateful for our writers and what they contribute to Families First Monthly. Thank you all for reading and enjoy the everyday bounties.
We are looking for Short and Sweet engagement stories (to 100 words) for a feature in our Feb/Mar Annual Party Planning Issue, Did you propose? Did they? Was there writing in the sky? Was it a special place? A complete surprise? Were there helpers involved? Tell the story of your parents or grandparents betrothal if you wish. Please email entries with your name as you want it to appear in print to email@example.com. Please do not send in an attachment.
Thank you for reading
