Well, folks, we’ve made it. In spite of everything Mother Nature lobbed at us in the last few months—I’m looking at you, Awful, No-Good, Record-Breaking Blizzard—we’ve finally arrived at the home stretch to the summer season. I’m not complaining! Except for when we have record-breaking blizzards. Not cool, Minnesota. Not cool.
And now that the sun is shining and the temperatures are rising, it’s high time to escape hibernation and check out all the latest season trends for our homes. Looking to renovate your kitchen? Want to add a patio to the backyard? In the mood for a basketball court? Want to update your furnishings?
Never fear! The 2018 Summer Home & Garden issue to the rescue! In this issue, we take a look at the wondrous custom design work offered by TJB Homes Remodeling for the whole household, and we learn about new furniture trends for the season by way of Schneiderman’s Furniture.
We also take a look at the services offered by GLBT senior advocacy group Training To Serve, as well as take a trip to St. Paul’s culinary gem Hodges Bend, which, by the way, boasts immaculate crab cakes. Sign me up.
So break out the parasols and deck chairs: Summer’s a-coming!
