I'm Thankful for...

We asked our North Peoria Lifestyle advertisers & family what they're most thankful for this Thanksgiving season

Your North Peoria Lifestyle team has much to be thankful for this year, and we wanted to share a few of those things in this issue. When we started thinking about why we're grateful, we began thinking about all of you—our readers and advertisers who have become a part of our family during our first year of publication. We reached out to our advertisers and asked them what they are most thankful for this Thanksgiving. We hope these inspire all of you. Feel free to drop me a line—my email is below—and share what you're grateful for as we close out 2022. 

We encourage you to stop by these local businesses—all of them your neighbors—and show them some gratitude this holiday season.
