Publisher's Note: 2018 So Much to be Thankful For

What a year it has been.

This year started off with the New Orleans Saints making the playoffs, followed by our Pelicans doing the same just three months later. Hopefully, next year the playoff run for both teams will be longer and include a ring.

Speaking of rings, one of my daughters got married this year with a beautiful ceremony at St. Patrick’s and reception at the American Freedom Pavilion inside the World War II Museum. Andrea and Malayne, you did an outstanding job planning this occasion. I turned 50 and lost 50 pounds in the process.

This year we were honored with more editorial and design awards, both locally and nationally, than ever before and I am so proud of our editorial team for these great accomplishments.

We created new custom magazines for associations and customers and launched new titles and events with a hard, and I mean very hard working, staff of 38 wonderful people who produced over 150 projects this year. I cannot thank them enough for their dedication and excellent work. I am so proud of them.

So, as we end the year and reflect on our success, we plan for new adventures in 2019. I hope you do as well.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year.
