November 2015
kids in autumn leaves Ahh, November. Time to cozy up with family and friends. Go for a leisurely hike and breathe in the crunching leaves underfoot. Maybe you're catching up on house chores and reading that's been put aside during the active warmer months. For us, it means putting the finishing touches on the 2016 SunriseGuide and sending her off to the printer. Always a labor of love and a huge release when it's finished. We hope you find something to inspire in this month's issue. Keep your eyes open for our 10th anniversary edition, releasing Nov. 23rd!
