Spring has sprung! We have made it out of the deep Minnesota frost. While the sun is beginning to shine and the birds have found their song, Blooma's leadership team has put together what we are looking forward to most in this Spring!
Sarah L.: Getting fat and prego :) & Sun kissed shoulders.
Lauren: I am looking forward to what spring brings to our friendships. We all come out of hibernation, leave the germs behind (mamas of little ones you know what I mean!), and have a renewed energy for building relationships. Park dates, family dinners on the deck, walks around the lakes. The fresh air and sunshine of spring seem to provide the energy to get back in these habits of life together with our neighbors, friends, and families.
Marina: For the past several years I have been studying plant ID for foraging and making herbal medicine. I am excited for nature walks with my dogs, field guides + camera. I love spending time outside experiencing and appreciating nature, and I'm hoping to find lots of morel mushrooms + fiddlehead ferns.
Greta: We got a cargo bike at the end of the season last year, so I can’t wait to have more time on that this year with my son being a bit older and taking it all in as we cruise around town. We love to take the creek path and see the changes as the seasons shift, there is non stop excitement!
Sarah A.: I love the trembling that takes place in Spring! That inner anticipation of our collective "engines" turning over. I use this energy to do one big cleaning project - this year it's to organize my digital pictures and print off some fresh ones for frames. A job I can do outside if the WiFi is strong enough on the patio!
Laura: I am still exploring Minnesota. The spring means day trips to different lakeside towns or walks along the river with my pup and boyfriend. I love exploring the hidden gems of the twin cities, hikes through parks and nature reserves, visits to waterfalls, and other outdoor adventures!
Meghan: I am most excited for the sounds of spring. When it is warm, I try to walk around the lakes everyday, and I love hearing birds chirping, kids playing, and the overall sounds of life as the earth starts to thaw.
Sam: I cannot wait to be bare foot in the grass, swimming in the lake, and getting my hands into the fresh spring soil. This year I am most excited to watch our 300 bulbs of garlic sprout that we planted last year!
What are you looking forward to this spring? What are you doing to soak in the sunshine, fill up your cup, and connect to your body?
We can't wait to see you in our bright and shining studio this spring!
