Hello Readers and Friends,
The glorious, glorious summer is in full bloom. Yes, I said glorious twice because August deserves it one more time than July! As we inspire you this month with a cover colored in yellow sunflowers, we hope your internal experience of summer is just as glorious as our August cover!
After viewing this cover myself, I had an immediate desire to be in a field of sunflowers as this woman is. I went online and serached and found that the largest sunflower field in the northeast is in Sussex County, New Jersey and is called Sussex County Flower Maze – Watch Video Here! The story behind this suflower field is that a couple who emigrated to the US from Thailand, started working in the fashion industry first in Manhattan and then bought the property to start a new life with the intention of turning it into a golf course. Well, the state told them they were not allowed to destroy the sunflower fields to protect an endangered turtle. This is how their new story began! I plan to take time to visit this field and also their natural cafe that they have created on the premesis called Roseline's Farm & Bakery.
If for any reason you can't make it to the sunflower fields, there are a plethoa of health and wellness events throughout New York and the tri-state area. To see all of these events live, visit our cityguide!
