The holidays are upon us!

The holidays are upon us! Where did 2021 go? Another roller coast ride year for this country, but at the end here we all are. We are fortunate here in Florida to live in the most beautiful state in the union, and we are extra fortunate to call North Florida, and The Hidden Coast, home.

We finished the year with another 40 page magazine (our 3rd in a row). We are very excited for this and look forward to reaching our next goal of 48, if not 56, pages in 2022. We thank all of our advertisers and writers for their continued support of our magazine and especially all of the new additions we picked up this year (both in advertising and writing). I don’t want to recognize anyone, because I know I would leave someone out, but there is one of each who has been with us from the very beginning. Thank you, thank you for I now consider them friends, more than clients.

Our current edition is filled with some great stuff! We have new advertisers as well as several pages on kayaking. This includes picking the right one for you and where to put in and so you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of The Hidden Coast. We also picked up four new rack locations, so it’s going to get harder and harder not to find us in the region! LOL

Please remember our advertisers as you start your holiday shopping. You can find some very unique items in this region. Most are hand made and very reasonably priced – perfect for that hard to buy person on your list. And don’t forget gift cards and certificates to some of the restaurants in the area. You can’t go wrong putting one of these under the tree. We too are offering some new items for The Last of Old Florida. Visors, decals, magnets and tote bags are new for holiday season, so if you have some time please check them out:

This month is somewhat of a milestone for us as we hit the 5 year mark, and I am very happy and proud of this accomplishment. It has certainly been a fast five years and I owe quite a bit gratitude to my family for their help along the way. They have always been willing to lend a hand when needed and for that I am very blessed.

Enjoy the upcoming holidays with family and friends and take a moment to thank the good Lord for all the blessing you have in life. Many of us take these for granted in the fast and turbulent world in which we live, but no tomorrow is guaranteed for anyone. Live life. Love life. Make memories.
