checking in - april2013
As I write this month’s “Checking In,” I see snow out my window. While Mother Nature may think she can fool us into believing it’s still winter in mid-April, we know better. It’s time for spring! Women magazine has dedicated this issue to spring fashion, health and beauty.
As we slowly shed our layers, our closet suggests it’s time to freshen up our wardrobe. Our spring guide showcases some fabulous finds that scream of spring, even if the weather doesn’t. Shoe lovers – check out our Body section with colorful flats and neutral must-haves.
Our cover woman, Aymee Balison, has her children’s boutique stocked for spring. Discover her reason for opening Sweetpea’s in De Pere more than 10 years ago and how she finds fulfillment through volunteering.
