FEBRUARY - We are 12 years old this month!! Holy cow. I can't believe it's been that long. It feels like just yesterday I posted the first issue and wondered if anyone would ever read it. I can't thank you all enough for keeping us going.
This month is also Valentines. Whether you are single or not, please don't forget about the most important person in your life -- YOU! Take time to relax and spoil yourself. And keep warm! January was crazy with the polar vortex and snow! Here in my part of Canada we officially had the snowiest January on record! But I think I can smell spring somewhere in the future.
IN THIS ISSUE....
|"Cooking Solo" in the Health/Fitness section.||"Raw sugar vs. white sugar: is one better than the other?" in our Health at Every Size section.|
|The Art of D Jose Maldonado in our Art/Entertainment section.||Jen Larsen's "Future Perfect" in our Literature section.|
|"It's All About Love in February ... and a Very Special Anniversary" in our Acceptance section.||"Eye Makeup Tips" in our Fashion/Beauty section.|
- Each month we feature simple exercises you can do at home and without buying fancy expensive equipment. Check out our youtube videos in the Exercise section.
- We started a new section called Letters to the Editor where we will share some of the comments we've received from readers.
- Another feature is our "Funny Quote of the Day" so be sure to keep coming back to the Funny Bone.
