Out With the Old, 
In With the New 1

Happy New Year! May you be happy the whole year through!

New beginnings, fresh starts, reaffirmations of love and promises for a brighter future all come to mind as we ring in a New Year. These are the superficial — yet purposeful — promises we make to ourselves.

We resolve to get in shape, lose weight, and improve our career paths. And then there are the heartfelt promises we make to others, whether aloud or in our minds.

One thing I know for sure is that 2016 promises you 12 great months of Sacramento Lifestyle with many exciting stories ahead!

This month we are focused on helping readers start the New Year on a healthy note. For starters, we offer five fun ways to get fit in Sacramento with a little something for everyone — from aerial dance to crossfit to pilates.

Did you know January is National Blood Donor Month? Learn about the importance of donating blood from a long-time volunteer at BloodSource.

And the New Year is a great time to start thinking about giving back. Get inspired by local business Morry’s Oriental Rug Bazaar and how they help their local community.

As we ring in the New Year, remember that this is YOUR magazine — we want your input! I’m asking for first-person lifestyle stories from readers about interesting hobbies, sports and other interests. Communicate with us about what you want to see the magazine become this year.

And if you’re a new business owner in Sacramento or the surrounding area and are looking for the right avenue to get your branding message out, Sacramento Lifestyle is it! Reach out and tell me about your business so we can help you connect with the Sacramento community.

Always my best,

Lori Cruz, Publisher
