Grand Prize Peep Winners

I See What You Mean

We are excited to announce the grand prize winners of the 2015 Peep Contest! This year the theme was "a famous painting or sculpture."

Congratulations to our "all ages" winner, the Park Hill Teen Advisory Board! They created Denver's big blue bear sculpture, I See What You Mean, with blue Peeps. We loved their creativity and shout-out to Denver!

The "adult" grand prize winner was submitted by a customer at Ross-Cherry Creek who created Peeps Playing Poker. It is an intricate masterpiece with amazing detail.

Mindfulness at Noon: Extra Servings of Mindfulness for Better Health

How to Eat

A wise woman once said "Your body hears everything your mind says." That woman was Naomi Judd. Okay, I don't know how wise she is, but I sure connected with that quote. And I figure someone who has faced serious health issues and spent much of her life touring must know something about how stress impacts your body!

Mindfulness Book Club: Mindfulness Goes To Work

Your Mind at Work. From the April 2013 issue of Mindful Magazine.

We all spend a huge chunk of our lives at work. We may spend more time with our co-workers than we do with our loved ones. So when you have a bad day or are stressed, it can feel completely overwhelming.
