In Bloom This May!

It’s that time of year again when the sun is out and the fabulous weather has us Del Mar and Carmel Valley folks out and about, preparing to celebrate the amazing women in our lives on Mother’s Day.

As children, you probably had a moment you wanted to show mom your appreciation – Picking flowers to express your love or finding just the perfect gift. I love some of the traditions now with my children and their special thoughts and gifts for mom. Flowers, food, and quality time…we all probably don’t slow down enough to celebrate you and thank you for all you do!

In this issue, we also take a look at some amazing women entrepreneurs in our community in our feature spread, and showcase some of the incredible merchants at Flower Hill in celebration of In Bloom, offering special events, activities and attractions all month long.

Fair season and a summer of racing and events is on our doorstep. One great event to check out this month is the Boardroom Surfboard show – A celebration of our area’s surfing culture, and a great event to enjoy the vibe of our community and lifestyle. Hope to see you there or at any of the other fun community events listed in our Around Town and Lifestyle Calendar!
