November is one of my favorite months of the year. Not only does that mean the weather is starting to get cooler (although you wouldn’t know it based on the past week or two we’ve had!), it also means my birthday! It’s a milestone…I’m turning 30! It’s a pretty exciting time too, because as you may have noticed on the front of each magazine cover this year, Hotspots is also celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Next month you’ll get to see some cool features detailing Hotspots’ first three decades in publication. Look out for it! Lots of love!
