Last week we spoke about hosting your very own wine or beer pairing. As your last summer hoorah, we hope the tips and tricks we gave you were helpful and inspiring! We realize though, that one thing was missing…FOOD or, alternative food and pairing options. So, this week we’re going to chat about what should...
As summer comes to an end we think about those last few events, parties and concerts we want to attend as those warm nights and sunny days drift away. We may also think about hosting one last summer hoorah, ourselves. Luckily though, here in lovely Colorado, the weather (usually) stays nice long enough for us...
Picture this: you come home from a long day at the office, you sit in the living room, pop in a movie or pick up a book and a glass of wine and work towards relaxation. Unfortunately, something is missing and you don’t feel as relaxed as you maybe could. What’s worse? You can’t put...
Been to a bar recently? On a train? To a sporting event? On a date? What are the people around you doing? Are they speaking and engaging with one another? Do they seem aware and present in the moment or perhaps, stuck to a screen in another moment in another place? Unfortunately, wherever we go,...

It can be hard to start the day off right when you’ve under- slept (or even overslept), the dogs need walking, breakfast needs making, and no matter how early you leave, a half hour of morning traffic awaits you. While Just Be certainly understands the...
For Coloradans all over the state, summer is the best time of year. School is out, work is light, and the sun is (almost) always shinning. Many of us enjoy time hiking, biking, swimming, road tripping, movie-going and brewery touring. Another activity that many people also enjoy during their summers off is reading! Not only...
We live in a beautiful and unique state here in Colorado. We frequently rank Top 5 for healthiest states in the nation. Who would blame us when there are so many amazing and fun things to do outside?!? Not us. In fact, this summer, we want to help you get out there and do those...
Often times, buying local and shopping small seems both expensive and political. It feels as though only a certain group of people can afford and engage in an all-local lifestyle and most of us—while we may be interested in local commerce—are not capable of attaining such an idealistic lifestyle. Whether it’s because we think our...
