Moosehill Brighton was established in 2018 by my husband Eli and I, Letitia. We are excited to bring Moosehill to Brighton. My sister, Mandi, owns Moosehill on Colfax. That restaurant has been operating since 1984!

Moosehill is very close to our hearts as Eli and I met there back when we were in high school. We also got married at Moosehill Kipling (now closed) when it was operating in 2002!

I hope we can earn your business and support at Moosehill Brighton. We are a Veteran owned business as Eli served four years on active duty in the Marine Corps and we live in the Brighton area.

At Moosehill Brighton you will find Mexican food as well as Tex-Mex food. We are famous for our burritos, green chile and our Moosemilk. We also have Gluten-Free, Vegetarian and Vegan menus as well as catering service. If you live within a 7-mile radius we deliver through Doordash and Grubhub. We are working on our liquor license and we will soon have our famous margaritas for you to enjoy. In the meantime come in and try our Boba tea! Yes, you read this right, we have Boba Tea. When we took over our current location from Chopsticks Vietnamese restaurant we decided to keep the Boba tea since the current owners mentioned this was something many of their customers were going to miss.

We are super excited to serve our community and make new friends, so stop by and we promise you will find something on our menu that you will love. Please visit our website at www.moosehillbrighton.com for more information.

Most home buyers are on the sidelines for the month of August which is great if you are motivated to buy right now. One of the biggest reasons for the lull is because we’re approaching back to school time. Lucky for you, inventory is much greater now than it was in the early spring. For the first time in a long time, buyers can actually shop for their dream home instead of fight for it.

Sellers, do not fret. While many are focused on getting kids prepared for school, there are still buyers who will take advantage of this time of year. We are still in an incredibly strong market and though inventory is better, it is still somewhat limited.

Want to make sure you still get top dollar for your home? The best way is to show pride in ownership. If you have a lot of deferred maintenance, buyers will notice. Take the time to spruce up your home and get it ready to show off.

If you want our professional services, including staging your home, professional photos, and expertise in buying and selling, hire our friendly, knowledgeable and dedicated Realtors at The Margolis Team. Please call: 720-791-5999 or visit www.TheMargolisTeam.com

We are always looking to add great talent to our team, so please call Brian directly at 720-352-0454 if you are interested in a great career in real estate.

27J School DistrictThe Brighton Recreation Center has created special programming to accommodate School District 27J students who are looking for fun activities on non-contact Mondays. It’s called RecPlay Mondays and it starts when students head back to school in August.

School District 27J announced it was going to be transitioning to a four day school-week earlier this year and with the new focused academic schedule, students will only be in the classroom Tuesday-Friday. Meaning families are left to find their own childcare and entertainment for their kids on Mondays. The Brighton Recreation Center didn’t just sit back and wait for the community to ask to use its facility or for the school district to propose a partnership; instead, staff immediately went to work on what classes and educational opportunities it could offer.

“We are offering a variety of Monday programming that we hope will appeal to many different interests,” said Assistant Director of Recreation Services Jeffrey Hulett.

The approach was simple: create a wide variety of classes that will appeal to kids with a wide range of interests. The RecPlay Mondays programs are divided into age groups, much like school, and there are classes available for students in elementary all the way up to high school.

“In the morning we have our sports camps along with SpaceTime – a hands on science workshop—and LEGO Camp,” Hulett said. “Early afternoon is Culinary Kids, Strength Training and Pool Sharks.” He added, “We wrap up the day with more sports camps.”

All RecPlay Mondays’ programs run in either a three or four week session, according to the Recreation Center’s website. In addition to multi-series classes, like the ones mentioned above, the Brighton Recreation Center is also are offering one day classes held on various Mondays throughout the fall. These include classes for Babysitting and a CPR/First Aid class.
“We welcome the public’s feedback as we continue to develop programming to meet the needs of our community,” Hulett said.

Now that the kids are out of school and the beautiful Colorado sun is out, many kids are spending much more time outdoors in the sun. It is important to remember that the UV rays from the sun can cause painful sunburns, early wrinkling of the skin and an increased risk of developing skin cancer.

It is crucial to know the best ways to protect your kids from the sun. The sun is most intense from about 10am to 4pm each day. You can minimize exposure to the sun by staying in the shade and covering as much skin as possible. This can be done by wearing hats as well as lightweight clothing that covers the arms and legs. For skin that isn’t covered, sunscreen should always be used. Before heading into the sun you want to apply a sunscreen that has “broad spectrum”, has an SPF rating of at least 15, and is water resistant. With any sunscreen, regardless of what the SPF is, you should always re-apply at least every 2 hours. No sunscreen is completely waterproof so it should always be reapplied after swimming, sweating or other water activities. For infants under 6 months of age it is best to keep them in the shade and keep their skin covered. However, for the times they cannot be shaded or protected with clothing, you may use a small amount of sunscreen on the exposed skin.

Last month I introduced the hot button topic of Aging in Place and the growing trend of universal design to more fully address the needs of our rapidly growing aging population and their desire to stay in their homes. But what does that really look like in terms of physical changes to your home and the impact on your life now.

First and foremost, universal (or ageless) design is about focusing on safety, ease of movement, and attractive design, both inside and outside, for all ages and abilities regardless of the stage of life. There are, of course, the more obvious and major design elements like open floor plans and widened hallways and doorways that allow for more accessibility for wheel chairs, scooters, and walkers. Another major consideration is accommodating the ability for single-floor living by ensuring kitchen, full bathroom, bedroom, and laundry are all accessible on the main floor.

But what about less major design elements outside of a major remodel… think about things that some might consider purely cosmetic adaptations such as lever-style faucet and door handles because they are much easier to operate for someone with painful joints or a weak grip. Additionally, some less obvious features could include lower or no threshold doorways. You might also consider lowered or more shallow countertops and sinks, lower cabinets, a curbless shower stall or even a walk-in bathtub that can also function as an individual jacuzzi bath, lowered light switches and thermostat, and lighting/fan fixtures with separate remotes or WIFI connectivity.

In short, your home doesn’t have to look like a geriatric facility to be functional for someone aging in place.

Now that we are in Summer, the flower fever has begun for me. I don’t know about you but I love planting flowers. I came across an article in 5280 Home Magazine and had to share this helpful information. If you want to grow a flower garden always bursting in color the entire season then these flowers will help to achieve that goal. Here is a list of flowers to plant:

  • In July: Tri-Color Butterfly Bush, Red Knockout Rose, Osteospermums
  • In August: Hummingbird Trumpet, Sunset Hyssop, Mexican Sage
  • In September: Purple Dome Aster, Chocolate Flower, Joe Pye Weed

Local garden experts shared this bit of advice of easiest plants to keep alive in the Front Range:

  • Red Valerian (perennial) blooms from May until frost.
  • Ice Plant (low growing ground cover) can handle direct sun exposure.
  • Blanket Flower (Sunflower origin) has an extended bloom time and doesn’t need much water.

If you are thinking of putting your house on the market, remember front and back yard landscaping will add great curb appeal to your home helping you sell it faster and for more money.

I hope this information is helpful in making your garden more colorful and your home more appealing.

Happy Summer!

The storybook marriage was over, Mary lost her job, and with the extra time at home her husband’s infidelity was discovered. Mary’s father had died seven years ago and left Mary a substantial inheritance. Never guessing that their marriage would end this way, Mary simply merged her inheritance with all of the family’s assets. Unfortunately, during the divorce, there was no clear distinction between Mary’s inheritance and the remainder of the family’s assets. The judge was unable to determine the difference and divided the total of the assets equally between her and her unfaithful husband. The divorce was bad enough, but to make matters worse, this meant that Mary just lost half of her inheritance.

The outcome of this case could have been avoided. If Mary’s father had prepared a thorough estate plan, he would have left the inheritance to Mary in trust. Mary would then be able to control the trust, but the trust would help her keep the inherited assets separate from the marital assets. If Mary used the assets inside the trust for her benefit, but did not draw them out of the trust and spend them, she could have easily identified the inherited assets in the divorce. As a result, the inherited assets would have been her separate property and would not have been divided in the divorce.

Estate Planning can and should be more than avoiding probate and saving taxes. A properly designed estate plan can provide many additional advantages that protect your family. Most of these protections are ignored in cookie-cutter, form-driven estate plans. Individuals should look closely at all of the benefits a properly designed estate plan can provide them while they are alive, and provide their families after their death. After all, when is it okay that our children’s ex-spouses receive the inheritance you worked so hard to accumulate and pass on to your children? If you would like to learn more about an alternative estate planning process that is producing great results for families please visit: www.EstatePlansThatWork.com to sign up for a complementary educational workshop.
