Heart of the Matter

For most, opening a restaurant requires a giant leap of faith. The location, the concept, the service, the food—it’s a recipe requiring the kind of preternatural timing and instinct even the most seasoned restauranteurs can get wrong—and often do. But for Tony Ricci and his wife, Debra, theirs wasn’t just a leap of faith; it was an act of one.

It’s That Time Again

I can’t believe Christmas is almost here again. Last year, to be honest, the holiday season wiped me out—I’m not just talking financially, I’m talking wrapping-presents-at-3:30-a.m.-Christmas-Eve-staring-into-my-pantry-wondering-if-an-unopened-jar-of-cinnamon-could-work-as-a-stocking-stuffer kind of wiped out. This year, I’m determined to stay on top of things—that’s why I was very excited to feature Haven Grey in our gift guide. This boutique nestled in downtown Loveland … Continued

Ready, Set, Glam!

Like it or not (we love it!) we’re knee-deep in the holidays. And while you can put the question of how to dress your turkey behind you, ahead of you lies the conundrum of how to dress yourself and get holiday-ready for all the parties, events and get-togethers happening throughout December and into the new year.

It’s very fitting that our “Thankful” issue happens to coincide with our one-year anniversary.

Each issue, we worked to uncover stories of people who took chances and followed their passion. People who helped better their community. Those who inspired and taught others. … Continued
