Putting on a Fresh Face – and Making it Last

Happy 2017 Brazos friends!  It’s a new year, and I, for one, am ready! absolutely! Brazos has a fresh, new look for 2017, and we are excited!  We love putting a fresh face on our magazines – especially since 2017 marks our 13th year of bringing you the people, places and happenings in Fort Bend with our community magazines. Now that’s a milestone to celebrate!

This year will be a year of celebration for us. This October marks our tenth year of giving, and we are hosting another amazing signature event where we will once again give back to our community that has given us so much. To date, through our signature events alone, we have donated nearly $170,000 to area non-profits, and we are proud to once again shine the spotlight on our amazing community organizations. Stay tuned for details as we shine in 2017 with 10 years of giving!

To help your kids shine and be their best in the new year, our absolutely! Kid Friendly section has some amazing resources to help you find the perfect school. Check out the many options available in our area starting on page 12.

Resolutions are a big part of our New Year’s tradition, and each year, I tend to make the same resolutions. But for 2017, I have decided to change it up. I resolve to focus on the things that are important to me on a daily basis – faith, family, friends and health – and not take anything for granted.  This past year has taught me that our lives can change in a moment, and my determination as a woman, as a mother, as a community servant is stronger than ever. Attorney and speaker Cavett Robert said, “Character is the ability to carry out a good resolution long after the excitement of the moment has passed.” Yes, 2017 is going to be exciting for absolutely! Brazos. We are determined to make it so – every day.

Happy New Year to all of our advertisers, readers and Brazos friends! We are thankful for you and extend our sincere wishes for a healthy, prosperous and absolutely amazing new year!

Absolutely yours,
