Ah, May. It’s my favorite month of the year. It’s the month of my wedding anniversary. (May 1!) But it’s also when spring fully blooms, and all the lilacs and daffodils with it. I just love going on walks in May, breathing in that fresh spring air and seeing new leaves unfurl and new flowers bloom on a daily basis.
Speaking of getting outside—the theme for this month’s issue are outdoor living and beauty, fitting themes for this lovely time of year. I’m sure you’re all excited about the Edina Garden Council’s annual plant sale (page 40), but it’s also a great time to consider embarking on a hiking or camping adventure. We’ve got tips for novice outdoor enthusiasts on page 20. And if May’s natural beauty inspires you to dip your toe into some of the year’s beauty trends, we’re talking all about them with the experts at Lili Salon Spa (page 26).
May is also Mental Health Awareness month, and I’m excited to introduce you to a unique, new co-working space in Edina, just for therapists (page 18). We’re also sharing some tips on how to develop a meditation practice (page 16).
I know not everyone likes spring—it can be muddy and messy. But I hope this month you’ll spend some time outside and open your eyes to the beauty this season offers!
