INTO THE GREAT WILD OPEN

Photo by Jake Blucker on Unsplash By Bridget Baker I looked up at the black and white clock, hearing the subtle buzz of the second hand as it moved along. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…the bell rings and it’s officially summer vacation! I could now run wild and free, untethered by school lunches, teacher’s rules, and the limitations of the recess bell.  That memory from getting out of school each year always meant the possibility of swimming pools, summer dance camps, and the freedom of being able to sleep in. It was a defining moment. Not only is my birthday in [...]

COME DANCE ON THE WILD SIDE

2019-08-01T08:18:29-04:00

Photo by Quino Al on Unsplash By Gail Barker, B.A., C.P.C.C. Every year, a few months before my birthday approaches, I find myself standing in an introspective space. It’s a space where I contemplate who I’ve been, who I am and who I’m becoming. Moreover, I start to reflect on HOW I’ve been, HOW I am, and HOW I’m becoming. There seems to have been a shift as I’ve grown. A change, if you will, both in who I am and how I am. I suppose this is inevitable. As we grow, we change; we evolve and we show up differently. [...]

A LITTLE DUTCH COURAGE

2019-08-01T08:19:04-04:00

Photo by Micheile Henderson on Unsplash By Liz Crowe Welcome to summer time in Ann Arbor! The outdoor movies! The concerts! The food trucks! The sidewalk eating! The art! The available parking! I’ll never forget my first summer here in my first house on Beakes Street with our toddler son (and yeah don’t get me started on how I never should’ve sold that house, we’ll save that one for another column, ok?). Anyway, we’d load him up in the handy wagon with juice boxes, crackers, and cheese sticks and wheel ourselves over to the Top of the Park—the one that was [...]

DECORATE WITH WILD ABANDON

Photo by Jeff Garland By Tiffany Edison What is your take on following trends? Do you love having the latest and greatest, or would you rather make a trend than follow one? I have done both over the years, but I seemed to have landed on adhering to my own set of rules and bucking trends. Whether it be my own personal style or when assisting clients in their home environments, I approach both with the way I feel more than the way things “should” look. The key to good overall design is establishing balance.  I am here to tell you [...]

SPELLS FOR RUNNING WILD

Waiting for his cue, which is for me to move towards him, startling that glorious toddler cackle from deep within his belly, so that he can wobble and fall over again. We moved the old mattress into the big canvas tent when my brother and his girlfriend stayed last month. The pillows and covers are back in the house now, leaving only a faded blue sheet on the bed. I know the dog likes to sneak in and nap here in [...]

Whether you’re living by the lake this summer, traveling to a coast, or simply poolside, a swimsuit is definitely close by. And while we may like wearing our swimsuits some days more than others, there are so many styles and combinations that it’s hard to not feel fab in some of this season’s styles. The swimwear industry has really tweaked what these options look like and how they work for women’s bodies. The spectrum of coverage, support, and style spans wide and really aims for inclusivity for [...]
