It’s May! And even though summer isn’t technically here yet, us Minnesotans certainly count this as the unofficial beginning of the summer season since, you know, it’s winter almost nine months out of the year here. And this is prime time to focus on our homes: renovating them, selling them, and buying them.

Want a little head start for getting the ball rolling on your homestead dreams? Then our 2019 Summer Home + Garden issue is just for you!

This issue, we receive real estate tips and tricks from members of the Minnesota chapter of the National Association of Gay & Lesbian Real Estate Professionals (NAGLREP) now that summer’s here; we learn about the upcoming Artisan Home Tour; and we have local lighting fixture company Hennepin Made tell us how to light up our living spaces.

Not enough Lavender goodness for you? We also take a sneak peek at this year’s Art-A-Whirl art crawl and some of the GLBT artists involved, and we look at a Day In The Life of occupational therapy assistant-in-training Cady Eddy!

It’s a good time to treat yourself to a home makeover or a new domicile altogether, so read on and make that dream a reality! And don’t forget: PRIDE is almost here! We here at Lavender have a lot of amazing things cooking for the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, so stay tuned!
