CONTENTS EDITOR'S NOTE: It's November or, as it's become known in recent years, Movember – the month men grow dapper 'staches to raise awareness for men's health issues (read more about this charity inside). I am always in an extra cheery mood when November debuts as I'm in high spirits from Halloween, and am amped for the whirlwind of festivities to follow: Thanksgiving, Art Basel, Christmas, Hanukkah… all attached with the promise of flowing libations, a cornucopia of sweet and savory fare, spirited entertainment and most importantly – togetherness. It is inarguably the most wonderful time of the year. For the fall/winter "holiday" issue, we try to pack in some extra special goodies to get the merriment rolling. Miami Living has native Floridian Willa Ford as the cover girl. The gorgeous songstress- turned-actress has been spending time in Miami for her recurring role on Starz's hit television show, Magic City. Inside, Willa shares her love for this city (humidity and all), her thoughts about her sexy / bad girl persona, and the new direction she's steering her life. We also chat with mega-platinum artist Alejandro Sanz about his new album and actors Cress Williams (Hart of Dixie) and Casey LaBow (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn- Part 2). ML's gift guide lists a number of fantastic items to add to your wish list this season or gift to loved ones. We also have a succulent turkey recipe compliments of Chef Michael Gilligan from the newly renovated Rusty Pelican, along with an interview with him. And if you're planning a getaway, check out our travel feature that highlights New York City, San Francisco and Captiva Island. Pour a glass of frothy eggnog (add a splash of bourbon or whiskey), settle down near the fireplace and enjoy what we've whipped up for you. Happy Holidays!
