Congrats, parents! You survived the summer! The kids are back in school, and it’s time to plan for the upcoming fall and winter events. We are so lucky that Cypress and the greater Northwest and West Houston communities offer so many opportunities to celebrate. There is something for everyone happening in our area. Check out the calendar for September as well as future months’ issues so you won’t miss the festivals, markets and events that make our community such a unique and special place to call home.

This issue celebrates local boutiques, restaurants and businesses! We have to support our local businesses so that Cypress will continue to thrive. It’s fantastic that Cypress is now on the list of Houston’s “places to live and check out” and that we are recognized as a vibrant community we have become. But it is so imperative that we remember the small businesses that made Cy-Fair what it is today. I can’t say it enough! #ShopLocal!

Ladies—Our partners Haute Suburban Mess and Anything Bling have you in mind when they go to market and choose what to offer in their stores. Unlike major store brands, they are laser-focused on what will make you feel and look stylish. It’s like having your own personal stylist!

Of course, style doesn’t always mean clothes. Local Table opened in June and offers amazing, fresh, and yes, stylish dishes Cypress residents are raving about. If you haven’t tried Local Table, you are missing out!

I also have to mention home-builder style. Sitterle Homes is one of the premier home builders in Towne Lake offering elegant garden home designs with exquisite features to ensure a comfortable, luxury living space with all the benefits of a resort-style community without the additional maintenance. Sign me up!
