  9. Stock up on some scents, essential oils, Chinese herbs and other mediatative books, cds, bumper stickers, and teas and roots from Sheepish Wellness and Healing
  10. This one is mandatory: Relax. Read a good book, draw, color, whatever, just sit downa and do nothing at some point.
  11. After breathing gross city air all year, you need to detox, stat. Get a Detox Kit from Dr. Sarah Ruderman (Isagenix) and start fresh!
  12. Try out a Cannabis Restaurant 
  13. Go wine tastingand indulge in an evening view from my favorite Wine Bar at Uncorked Kitchen

  15. Pack a sunshade, a cooler and a beach towel (maybe a beach chair) , then head to the closest lake (Cherry Creek or when in Wisconsin at Pickeral Lake ) Repeat as necessary until Labor Day.
  16. Summer = fireworks. Bring some fun or buy some along the way. Make sure it is lawful to shoot in the town where you choose. In the end, remember to have fun. Add many sparklers.
  17. Forgot to book a spa day at one of Denver’s Best Day Spa’s. Give yourself a day for you or you and a gal pal or you and your hunepants.
  18. Expand your art collection (or start one) by going to one of the art days on a Denver Summer Weekend. Find a piece that screams out at you. Buy it, hang it. Enjoy.
  19. Bet Brunch in town? Denver’s Best Brunch Spots
  20. Go to a Resort. Have Fun. I’ll be at The Waters Minocqua
  21. Save time going to and from the airport by using a feature we just found out about SkyRide. It will pick up up at the LightRail Stations and take you directly to the airport for only $9! That’s cheaper than parking and no worries about trying to remember which lot or stall you parked in when you get back from your tip!
  22. Oh, athleisure, we want to live in you all summer. Stock up on Athleta for the comfy clothes for summer flair, summer wear.

April Love 07 Dear Rest

Dear Rest,

At times you elude me. Most of the time you elude me in fact.

There is no rest for the weary…

But Rest is more than Sleep.

Rest is being content

Rest is allowing yourself to have a break, to take a load off.

Rest is putting your mind, body and soul at ease through meditation.

Rest is a music note, asking to take a break.

Rest is a time for refreshment.

Rest is to stop movement.

Rest is to cease working.

Rest allows you time to recover your strength.

Rest means ceasing to engage in strenuous or stressful activity.

Rest is also an object that is used to support something.

Rest is but a small word, yet means so many amazing things.
