Each year in April, we celebrate Earth Day to show our appreciation for nature and Mother Earth. Here at Lifestyle, we propose celebrating nature’s bounty each and every day. We are blessed to live in a place with such tremendous access to stunning Colorado scenery. My family recently celebrated my wife’s birthday by exploring snowy Rocky Mountain National Park with our kids. Spending time in nature is one of our most favorite ways to enjoy our weekends, and every time we visit a place like Rocky, I feel a sense of gratitude for the men and women who work to preserve the wild places. I encourage all of our readers to purchase state and national park passes, as we do, to help support the management of these lands.

In this issue, we find beauty in all things nature in many ways. On our cover, we explore nature-based art through the Governor’s Art Show and bring intention back to our community experiences with The Botanique and share with you a few tips and tricks on “going green.”

I hope you enjoy, and as always, thank you for reading.
