Happy New Year!

With all of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season past us now, this is a great time to peek into the future and make promises to yourself to be better at one thing or another in 2013. Don’t be too hard on yourself, one step at a time. Have a great 2013.

This issue of Lipstik magazine showcases a young woman who has overcome an unexpected roadblock that life threw at her. The story about April Simpson’s amazing journey and her beautiful love of life will inspire you to appreciate everyday a little differently.

The encouraging story of Gateway Pet Guardians and the unselfish work of P.J. Hightower will warm your heart. P.J. and other volunteers make life a little easier for our four legged friends in the area. At the crack of dawn you will find her feeding, watering, or just reaching out with a kind hand to assure the animals that everything will be all right.

Our staff is busy planning for the upcoming issues of Lipstik Magazine. Have a story idea you would like to share? Give me a call, I would love to talk with you.

Ok, you know the routine...the tree is down, the decorations are put away, but I’m sure there is a little stash of Christmas chocolate you put away just for you. Sit back indulge in the chocolate and enjoy Lipstik Magazine.
