A Fresh Start to 2019
Most people think of January as a dreary month. Although Colorado weather tends to be gorgeous most of the time, post holiday blues and the chill in the air can bring even the most optimistic person down.
But maybe it’s time to turn that attitude around and see what’s actually good about the first month of the year. Sure the weather can be cold and cloudy, but that’s what some of us call “cuddle weather!” No major holidays means no major obligations, especially of the financial variety. And if we took a few weeks off from a nightly wine indulgence, we might actually start forming a waistline. See? January ain’t all that bad.
Your friends here at Reunion prefer to see the bright side of things, so we found a few events that will help our community kick off the year in several unique and exciting ways. This is just one of the many benefits of being a Reunion resident!
