When you think of family, what comes to mind?

Maybe it’s the people you share your mornings with: the husband or wife who makes you breakfast, the toddler who wakes you up before sunrise or the drooling pup in the kitchen just itching for a full dish of food.

Maybe it’s the people you share your years with: the grandfather who tells you old war stories at the Thanksgiving table, the uncle who brings you souvenirs from his travels or the aunt who can almost perfectly replicate your grandmother’s best pie recipe.

Or maybe it’s the people you share your life with: the friends who have and always will be there for you, the parents who have always supported you and watched you grow or the kids who are watching and learning from you day after day.

This month here at North Scottsdale Lifestyle, we’re celebrating our Kids + Pets issue. But we’re also celebrating the overarching feel of family and you, the readers, who always make us feel at home.

Thanks for sharing your family with us each month—we can’t wait to see you around!
