While last month's Design Challenge and anniversary celebration left us counting our blessings, it also had us sending up a few extra prayers. This year has been devastating for so many local farmers, and a nearly impossible harvest added insult to injury. In awe of their dedication, this Thanksgiving, I want to say, "Thank you" to all the hardworking farmers in my life; my dad, older brother, uncle and grandpa (retired, but forever a farmer). Our prayers to all of the farmers and their families in the surrounding communities.
I write my editorial about 10 days before the newest issues hit the stands. No big deal, right? Residing in one of the country's most unpredictable climates, I'm always hesitant to mention things like the great March melt when I have yet to know the outcome. My fingers are crossed and hands are praying that when this new issue arrives, you won't need to swim to the store to get it. Regardless of what April showers us with, we're adopting a sunny state-of-mind and purposefully dwelling on bright, fresh and floral. Right now, a splash of vibrant color, is exactly what our hearts and homes need.
Last August, when Susan and I first sat down to discuss starting Midwest Nest from scratch, we predicted it was going to be a crazy adventure, and we were right. We published our first issue in October of 2017 and with each passing month, we found an outpouring of support.
Goodbye flannel and boots with the fur, we'll see you again...I know for sure.
We're thankful for the sun, heat and rain - really anything that's not frozen is a big-time gain. Margaritas are the exception, with summer on the way, but first, let's show you the gorgeous homes and businesses of May.
