Happy Thanksgiving 
from Florence!

Wherever You Are in the World, Get Ready to
Kick Off the Season in Style

2015 is winding down, and many of us may be starting to reflect on all that the year has brought us and all that we’ve accomplished. At the same time, we might be turning our attention to the year ahead, and everything we still desire to create for ourselves.

I know that while the end of the year is a wonderful time to pause and celebrate, it can also be a time to hustle. For women entrepreneurs like us, we might be deciding which programs to enroll in, working to secure the last big clients of 2015, or lining up gigs with our freelance work. It can be a busy and active time in terms of bringing your yearly goals to a close!

Personally, I’m thrilled to welcome over 200 women into next year’s Academy class and cannot wait to meet each and every one of you. 2016 is going to be a major year for us, and this holiday season I have so much to be thankful for.

Speaking of giving thanks, Turkey Day is just around the corner, and I expect our American readers are getting ready to enjoy the first big feast of the season! And if you’re a fan of DL, then I’m sure you are not only currently busy working on your career dreams, but also love to throw a glamorous party with great friends and delicious food. So whether you’re in the States or around the world, hosting Thanksgiving or simply a chic holiday soiree, this week’s issue is dedicated to being the hostess with the mostest—without the stress.

I’ve come to believe the most difficult part of throwing a dinner party is not the execution, but the planning. So, we here at Divine Living have gone ahead and simplified the process. (You’re welcome!) We’re still taking our cues from harvest season in Florence, but ultimately you can consider this week your guide to planning everything from the menu to the venue.

And, even if you’ll mostly be a charming guest at parties this season, there’s plenty to learn about what bottle of wine to bring to dinner. In this months’ Girl’s Guide, we’re going to shake up your Pinot game with some fine Tuscan varietals that will add a special flare to any holiday meal. Plus, a very culinary edition of Divine Finds has everything from chic tableware to smart hostess gifts. Enjoy!

  All My Love,
