Get Cozy with Montana Woman

This is the time of year for enjoying the simple things in life:  the comfort of home, a lovingly prepared meal, quiet time enhanced  by the beauty of falling snow, or a walk through the magic of a Montana winter.  One of my favorite winter pastimes is reading.  This is the perfect time of year to check some titles off of your reading list, catch up on favorite blogs and, of course, sit down with your favorite magazine!
Magazines and blogs are fantastic when you're busy and either only have a few minutes to spare at a time or, like me, tend to fall asleep just a few minutes after you get started!
Montana Woman is wonderful to snuggle down in your bed with at night, relax with during a break at work or, better yet, enjoy during a leisurely afternoon.
Remember that you can have Montana Woman delivered to your mailbox each month with an annual subscription.  Subscriptions are also great gifts, especially for native Montana women living out of state.
We would like to make your experience as enjoyable as possible and encourage you to drop us a line, telling us what your favorite article or column is, and why.  What would you like to read more about? Check in on our Facebook page, send an email, or simply leave a comment here on the blog.
We hope you enjoy many quiet moments this season, and thank you for reading.

Happy New Year

The stunning lady on the January cover is Courtney McKee, co-owner of Headframe Spirits in Butte, MT.  The first of an upcoming series of collector's issues, the January 2013 Prohibition Issue is a historical and visual treat, taking us back to the Roaring 20s, when Prohibition sent honest, hardworking people quietly into the shadows to conduct both their business and pleasure.  
In the Cover Story, Courtney and John McKee share the story of Headframe Spirits and its secrets to success.  Also, you'll find Happy Hour recipes they have generously provided for the Western Comfort column - so get ready to mix things up a bit!
Jewels Devine delves into her family's history and sheds some light on what was once a dark family secret in Jewels' Gems.
Not only do we take a wistful look at the glamorous yet clandestine past in this issue, but we look, of course, to the future and what the new year might hold for us.  Bev Erickson, sister of Dr. Betty Kuffel, provides Thirteen Self Improvement Thoughts for 2013.  Her personal story is inspiring and motivational.
Always at the top of our resolutions list are health and well-being, and, of course, they are not overlooked in the first issue of 2013. Ask the Coach, Everyday Fitness and In the Know address the issues that so many of us struggle with, or at least wish to improve. 
Here's to the new year, the Roaring 20s and the readers and contributors of Montana Woman.  Let's make 2013 a remarkable year in history, as well. Cheers!
