I’m am so excited and humbled that this is the second end-of-year message I am writing to you, our readers. 2019 is the first full year we brought you Cypress Lifestyle, and what a year it’s been!

It is such a pleasure to uncover the fun, amazing and heart-warming stories for you to read each month. Erica and I laugh because we believe every issue is the best one yet until we finish the next one! We hope you feel that way too.

As our area continues to grow, we hope Cypress Lifestyle will bring you the sense of community you find in a small town where everyone looks out for one another and wants the best for their neighbors. We truly are so lucky to be Cypress residents. So many exciting changes happened in 2019 and there are so many more to come in 2020.

I want to give a shout out to our Cy-Fair school district. Students in CFISD have the highest standard of education regardless of their financial situation and with programs from Cy-Hope, Cypress Area Ministries, Cy-Fair Helping Hands and many others; our community supports our youth and encourages them to become their best selves.

And so, my friends and neighbors, let’s celebrate what we achieved in 2019 and toast our dreams for 2020! My dream is to continue to grow Cypress Lifestyle and that you will support us by considering our partners first when looking for services. They are the reason we are able to share your stories, our stories.

Much love and see you next year!
