Welcome to 2020 the year of the rat and all its foretelling’s.
As I look back on the year 2019, it was not without its challenges. A significant year of discovery and acceptance. A time of perception and gratitude, to have been blessed with such an amazing family and supportive loved ones. We are all aware of the importance of living a happy, balanced lifestyle, yet how often do so many of us need a ‘not so gentle’ reminder…
This issue marks the end of a decade and the beginning of a whole new chapter with the predominant title - ‘if you can dream it, you can achieve it.’
Is dreaming the key to succeeding? We show you how to put your creative ideas together and to encourage the child in all of us to resurface. Remember what it was like when we had little concern about embracing our imagination.
Our front cover depicts the coziness and beauty of the winter season, you can read more about the talented professionals involved in creating this stunning work of art on page 6.
The winter season is also a time when we tend to want to just snuggle up and stay indoors, shorter days and colder nights is a given, and so it’s even more important that we pay extra attention to our well-being. To help maintain bone and joint health and to keep our energy levels up, nutrition and exercise play a vital role. Page 19 makes no bones about it!
The Okanagan Valley is such a great place to live, we can sometimes forget that not everyone here is as fortunate as others. Some lack the creature comforts that many of us may take for granted. Thankfully, there are people and wonderful organizations that have made it their purpose to help wherever they can. Read more on page 30.
See our heart-warming, delicious recipes on pages 32 – 36, and to help you get your well-deserved rest through the holiday season, we’ve selected a few of our favourite teas to relax with.
Wishing all of our readers, subscribers, advertisers, contributors and friends, a very happy, healthy and purposeful 2020.
