    I'd love to reference your article, "Fitness and Wellness Intertwine: A Major Industry Rises", for a paper for a holistic cosmetology class. I was wondering if that would be alright with you if it is properly credited to you. It was a beautifully written article, filled with amazing facts about this growing health and wellness movement, I just wanted to clear it with you before doing so. Thank you!
