Can we all agree that May is pretty much perfect? We have SERIOUSLY enjoyed ourselves this month (and we hope you have, too!).
Here in Kalamazoo, the month of May means more sunshine, warmer temps, and abundant blossoms (LOVE!). It also means more opportunities to share our passion with others. We love engaging with our community in any capacity, and the Kalamazoo Farmers Market (which opens each May) is the perfect venue to mingle with other local vendors and chat with friends old and new. Farmers Market aside, we’ve been keeping ourselves busy back at the shop, sharing our space with tons of new friends for candle-making classes. We’ve hosted bachelorette parties, game night get-togethers, corporate team-building activities… SO. MUCH. FUN. Events like this leave us no option but to absolutely love what we do.
It’s hard to beat these opportunities to connect with our friends face-to-face, but launching new projects has to be a close second. May has been especially awesome since we launched Illuminate Crate, our new subscription box. Despite the anxiety around creating/introducing something new and different, we kind of fell in love with this project, especially as we devoted so much thought into developing the subscription program, and had so much fun working out the details for the first Crate.
Since we're all about taking time for loved ones, we obviously designed the May Crate with Mother’s Day in mind, knowing that so many of you would be celebrating/remembering special women in your lives. That’s why we decided to feature our cheerful Magnolia Blossom fragrance in the May Crate.
And no proper springtime would be worth its weight in fresh flowers if we didn't talk about love. Regardless of where it's targeted, love abounds this month, so it only made sense for us to feature Free Love Bakery in the May Crate (along with their a-m-a-z-i-n-g gingersnaps)!
Wherever you are, we hope May has been good to you. And although we’re closing in on June, we encourage you to take some time to sit back and revel in the simple beauty of May.
P.S. Don't forget to sign up to get your Illuminate Crate each month! Subscribe here before June 1 to reserve your June Crate!
