With the holiday season upon us, you won't want to miss The Art of Table Setting (page 14), and a tasty cocktail recipe from R + D Kitchen (page 19). In Welcome to the Neighborhood you'll discover exciting destinations, including Fort Worth's New Dickies Arena, a venue that will be home to the world-famous Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo (pages 12-13). Following this curated content, our Associates present many of the area's most exquisite homes, ranches, and lake properties.

We hope you enjoy this edition of Grand Vie, and will take some time to slow down this season - maybe with a copy in-hand. As Ferris Bueller famously said, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

Happy fall and cheers to you!
