Publisher's Letter: Welcome To September

I had the pleasure of traveling to breathtaking Colorado with my daughter where I stepped out of my comfort zone onto a zip line that launched me across the flawless blue skies high above Denver. I went horseback riding, took a yoga class with goats, ate incredibly healthy cuisine and enjoyed the splendor of the mountains and perpetual good hair days sans humidity.
