Maple Grove Magazine May/June 2024

My friends and family have all heard me say it time and time again: In another lifetime, I am meant to be a flight attendant. Second to reading/writing, traveling is one passion that I seemingly cannot get enough of. Although I am not as well-traveled as I would like, destinations are slowly being ticked off one by one—on the flip side, with the help of social media, my list is becoming longer each day.

Thankfully, I have the ability to travel quite a bit this year. At the end of this month, I’ll visit Wisconsin’s Door County for the first time, and, at the end of June, my husband and I head to the other side of Wisconsin to kayak the Apostle Islands. This September, I plan to check off my sixth national park (the Grand Canyon) and hike through the beautiful red rocks in Sedona, Arizona. A few other trips may be on the docket as well.

Fasten your seat belts as we take off with our outdoor living, pets and travel issue. Travel planner Kendra Barber shares her tips to planning a romantic getaway—I may have utilized some of these suggestions myself as I plan our anniversary vacation this fall. And although there are still many more destinations on my bucket list, my taste buds are traveling to hotter destinations yet with help of our Tastemakers feature, where writer Kelly Cochrane gives us a taste of Cinco de Mayo in Maple Grove.

What destinations do you plan to visit, readers? Share snaps with us on Instagram @maplegrovemagazine.

Happy travels,
