November, 2015 – Enjoy Your Thanksgiving!


November, 2015 – Enjoy Your Thanksgiving!

OK, you’re right. This is not in Wellington, FL. This is a photo from a quick, weekend trip to North Carolina for a Martinelli wedding.

So we are entering into the time of year when the snow birds are coming back to Florida. The equestrian season is coming soon. South Florida is becoming a more beautiful and tolerable (temperature-wise) place to be. And Wellington is becoming more crowded, as our equestrian friends return.


We are also coming up to the next big holiday Thanksgiving.  It might sound cliché, but it is a great time of year to ask yourself, “What are you grateful for?”  Family and friends, of course.  As a Mom, I’m also grateful for my children making me laugh every day and making life unpredictable.  As the owner / publisher of, I’m grateful to have terrific people to carry it on, as I go back to the Monday thru Friday working world.  Thanks to Sabeen Faquir, who has stepped up and seamlessly taken over as Managing Editor.  Thanks to Natty Kelly, who has taken over as our Social Media Manager.  Thanks to our wonderful advertisers, who make AroundWellington possible.  And thank you to all of our talented writers and photographers, who contribute their words, their photos, their time and their views with us.

Welcome to Wellington, Hand & Stone Massage, which is located in the Trader Joe’s plaza on 441.  This month we feature what they do in our “AW Spotlight” story. If you are in need of a massage or facial, they will help you relax and breathe a sigh of relief again.
