Since we’re headed into spring and warmer weather, many homeowners are looking to start sprucing up their homes. We thought we’d introduce you to some folks and businesses around town who are experts in home improvement projects. After all, even the most die-hard DIYer needs a hand now and then. While the days grow longer, we encourage you to sit a spell, peruse our Home and Garden edition and gather some ideas before summer is fully upon you.
Longmont Magazine January/February 2023
Reframing New Year’s Resolutions as “goals” gives us a little grace and time to accomplish them. When we talk about goals, we recognize that there are steps to a complete longer journey. Some goals we’ve come to recognize and expect. Physical health goals are typically at the top of our lists, but we’re going to talk a bit about mental health as well. How do we go about finding a support network after years of full to semi isolation? Volunteering, reading more, and getting outside more can all elevate our mental health and improve our overall lives without being lofty and unachievable.

Tradition plays a big role in our lives and communities and this time of year pays special tribute to that. This year is especially meaningful to many as it’s really the first year that many traditional holiday events are making a more confident return and spreading their own holiday cheer as they go.

Here in Longmont, you can’t throw a rock without hitting a great restaurant, brewery, or bar. In this edition, we dish on foodie fare from the classic to the complicated. Think great burgers to Pacific Island infused menus. If you’re into it, you can probably find it around here. Speaking of summer, our favorite events are back! Finally, after entertaining ourselves for two years, we can just show up and let other people do the work. That really makes this summer something to look forward to.

We love our animals and Longmont proves it! We had so many entries for Longmont’s Cutest Dog Contest, I don’t know how you all managed to choose a winner, but you did it. Veterinarians run the gamut from your friendly neighborhood vet to specialized services, all to keep your animals living their best lives. We picked their brains on subjects ranging from the best food options to anxiety issues. Since summer is here, we – along with our pets – are enjoying more time outdoors, which means we need to be extra vigilant for those little insects that can pack a punch: ticks. Speaking of summer, we continue to see a return of our favorite events, and we have a few to keep in mind while planning your weekends and more.

It may not seem like it now, but warmer weather is just around the corner. And while we may have a little more to look forward to this summer, in terms of easing restrictions and events, let’s not forget our humble abodes.

I think most of us are trying to tiptoe into 2022 without disturbing it too much. Still, the turn of the new year is the time for a little reflection before we go on to our hopes for the new year. This can still be the year of you. Rather than making a broad resolution, perhaps try terming them as goals with small but steady steps toward achieving them. We’ve looked at several possibilities to better oneself and reaching out toward the community.Beyond goal setting and follow through, we’ve found a few ways to brighten up your winter doldrums. If you find yourself single on Valentine’s Day this year, celebrate your single status on Singles Awareness Day instead!There are some business in the Longmont area with unique ways of making our community better for all, whether that means creating safe spaces for the LGBTQ and allies, or providing a new, more affordable take on healthcare.No matter what 2022 gets up to, we can rise to meet the challenge knowing we’re the best selves we can be.

This time of year our minds turn to giving; to friends and loved ones certainly, but also to our community. When we count our blessings we may want to share that feeling with others. We’ve gathered some ways for you to do just that, including a few that give as much as they get. We also recognize a few businesses that give back, understanding that being a part of a community means much more than just living in it. The holidays also bring with them that festive spirit, and many of our favorite local events are back to help us celebrate. Wherever your heart and head are at this moment, we wish you a happy holiday season and a joyous new year.
