Every couple of years Dave and I follow our own advice and take time to retreat into nature, sleeping under the stars and exercising every day. This year, after being chased out of Canada by dense wildfire smoke, we found our perfect retreat in the stunning back-country of the Grand Tetons, Wyoming. (click here for pictures from our trip).
And as part of our travels we were lucky enough to checked-in with a couple of Wind River alum in Colorado and Tennessee (be sure to check out Jennifer Motycka and April Brown's inspiring stories later in this newsletter).
Our time out west reminded us of the on-going need to simplify and take time to slow it down and smell the roses. That said we are happy to be home and welcoming our fall retreat guests starting this Thursday!
Looking forward, we suggest you 'treat yo self' to a really cool event being hosted by Haylo's Healing Arts Lounge in Charlotte's hip Plaza Midwood on Saturday October 24th. All donations will benefit future survivors attending a Wind River Cancer Wellness Retreat.
And lastly, this month Dave and I are were touched by Page Leggett's feature article in The Charlotte Observer about how cancer changed our lives (for the better). My favorite part of the article was how Page highlights Dave's philosophy about The Power of Choice, including Be Open to Possibilities, Don't Rush It, Save and Don't play the Victim. (For the full article click here.)
Wishing everyone a happy fall!
Shannon & Dave
