Richard Nixon said, “Only if you have been in the deepest valley can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain.” Kelowna is the best of both worlds; the valley and the mountain, blue skies and bright lakes. Take a moment today and appreciate the great beauty abound. Welcome to Mint, an endeavor that has produced incredible curiosity and the craftiest creative output. This accomplishment raised the bar for what you can expect and what we will continue to produce. In our inaugural issue, I encourage you to lap up lavish living as you delve into fresh, local living.

From the mountain or the valley, we wish you a beautiful holiday season that is hung with much happiness.
