Once again, as we save the final changes for this issue of Beaches Living Guide before sending it to press, we're reminded that 2010 is about to cross the finish line. Before we know it, it'll be time to welcome 2011!

For seven years, our vision at Beaches Living is to explore, discover and share the history and nature that is close to us in our community. It's also our passion to share some lifetime stories and experiences that make each one of us appreciate the vitality of life that is in our city and our neighbourhood.

When readers tell us how much they enjoy stories about the past, how they've learned something new that enhanced their life, or why they simply enjoy reading our magazine in bed before they fall sleep—we feel so honoured knowing that you – the reader—is with us every day and throughout the year. You are part of our life, with the eight issues a year we publish (both Beaches Living Guide and Beaches|life), the two major annual community events we host plus our other exciting programs. And if one or two things you've learned have impacted your life, then we've fulfilled one of our goals.

Many are predicting a colder, longer winter this year, so Beaches Living has lined up a list of activities everyone can do this winter. Some are as close as your own backyard or local park, others are a short drive away. But if you ask anyone who looks forward to winter, they will tell you, winter is a wonderland if you can take some time to enjoy it—and dress for it! A walk in the snow or a hike in the crisp cold air gives us joy, health and a sense of well-being. So get out this winter, dress warmly and have some fun. Let the beauty of winter carry you through until next spring!

From everyone at Beaches Living, we wish you a safe and joyful winter and a prosperous 2011!
