What a lush, green summer!

What a summer! In all my 18 years in Evergreen, I’ve never seen such a lush green landscape in early September. The pastures at our little ranch are still gorgeous, even though the grasses are competing with the water-happy weeds. And, the afternoon thunderstorms have been such a welcome relief to the heat of day. 

We took our horses to the new Staunton Park on Hwy 285 last weekend and discovered an incredible park for hiking, biking, riding and climbing. If you haven’t had a chance to go, I encourage you to check out the outdoor recreation there -- or at any of our beautiful parks. We are so blessed to live in this gorgeous state!  

My husband, Chuck, and I loved the last concert of the season at Evergreen Lake. We had a fantastic evening listening to a great Motown band, dancing, laughing, watching the kids play and enjoying a spectacular sunset reflected in the lake. What a wonderful finale to these Wednesday night events.  

I hope you are able to squeeze in a few more events and outdoor activities before Indian Summer arrives. Then, we will help you move seamlessly into fall with our Transitions13 Hair and Fashion Trends show. Don’t miss it!
