I’m entering the holiday season with joy in my heart. Joy for having had the opportunity to share local stories about amazing people doing cool things in Edina in the pages of your community lifestyle magazine. I’ve met artists, chefs, restaurateurs, builders, boutique owners, educators, beauty experts, dedicated volunteers and nonprofit leaders. This is a truly wonderful city, and it has been my pleasure to be a regular explorer in and around this uniquely incredible town.
We spotlight more of what makes Edina so special in this issue’s collection of articles including stories about fundraising for breakthrough medical advancements, a children’s book author and a local event planning entrepreneur! And, because it’s the holidays, we’ve also included a feature story about wine to help broaden your knowledge and appreciation for a few new sips. These stories and much more await you in these pages.
And, as we wrap up 2021 and approach a brand-new year, I am also excited to tackle a brand-new challenge. After over nine years at the helm, I have exited my role as editor of Edina Magazine and managing editor for Tiger Oak Media’s collection of community lifestyle magazines for an opportunity that will help me build on all I’ve accomplished. By the time you read this, my final issue, the ongoing work here at Edina Magazine has continued in very good hands. The creative team that has supported me and this publication over the years remains dedicated to connecting and celebrating Edina in 2022 with even more stylish and engaging local stories that you’ve come to love. Being a part of your lives in this creative capacity has truly been my pleasure. Thank you for reading!
