I'm at the age where there is an equal amount of past to review as there is to look forward, only now I rely on gained wisdom as an accountable guide. As we reflect at Signature MT, there were so many valuable lessons learned in 2017... How to be humble in our success and how to stay grounded through our struggles. Each new year also sows new seeds of hope and opportunity, and 2018 is no exception. In fact, this year's journey carves a path of celebration as Signature MT prepares to celebrate a decade of success. It is hard to believe we started this magazine nine years and seven months ago. Boy, time flies when you're always on a deadline! ere have been a few subtle changes over the years but none as exciting as what's in store for Signature's 10th anniversary edition. We know that change always disrupts the apple cart but… What beer way to celebrate ten years of success than by modernizing and infusing fresh energy and passion into the pages of central Montana's most beloved publication. However, we give you our word that one thing will never change; our commitment to always accentuate the positive. While some might tag the old 1940's Bing Crosby song as corny, we, at Signature MT, will continue to embrace its message… "Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the positive, eliminate the negative, latch on to the affirmative (and not) mess with Mr. In-Between. In a world fueled by so much angst and anger, there is always room for a lile leavening. We are so giddy with excitement over our ten year milestone that we can't help but share a new department of Signature MT in advance. We pride ourselves on beautiful photography, so much so, that we are dedicating an entire section to things we unknowingly take for granted and rightly calling it "Surroundings". It seems as though the more we see the things around us, the more they become invisible. Professional photographer, Steve Wolff, is a true photographic crasman and storyteller. rough his lens, he captures the soul of central Montana and reminds us of the beauty that surrounds. Now that part of the cat is out of the bag, we invite you to enjoy this issue of Signature MT as you have come to know it over the years, but prepare to celebrate and experience an even deeper affection when we uncover a bigger, bolder and fresher next issue. Until then, may your 2018 be peaceful, bright and full of hope and possibilities. "To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did" Unknown
