  1. Ladies celebrating ladies. That’s what it’s all about on February 13th – Galentine’s Day! Showing your lady friends some love. We’re all for celebrating the women in your life, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend all your time, money and energy on putting together the perfect party. Keeping the focus on your friendships and spending …

  2. To help address the question at hand, I’d like to introduce you to two of my favorite women. Both are in extremely happy, committed relationships. Each are on two completely separate relationship paths. The first of the two got engaged within six months of dating her new boyfriend. She used adorably obnoxious phrases like, “when you …

  3. Man’s relationship with fire is about as old as language itself. Even with a multitude of wild, raw food available, primitive humans evolved to cook food– first for caloric reasons, then for taste preference, and eventually for efficiencies. Harvard biologist Richard Wrangham believes fire fueled the human brain to adapt and develop what are now considered …

  4. Readers, meet Becky Lang. I’ve followed her on Twitter for years and we were able to work together briefly last year while she was working with local agency, Zeus Jones. Admittedly I was a little nervous to meet one of my favorite Twitter follows; Becky (@leckybang) is bright, funny, and objectively cool with an unabashed interest …

  5. Readers, meet Bridget Borden. Bridget and I have been friends about as long as I’ve known my husband, Joe, and she’s joined the W&D Team as the director of events at Studio 125. Bridget left her corporate job to pursue her passion for designing and planning beautiful experiences, launching Bridget Borden Events in 2016. She’s graciously offered …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. Hey you, what’s your sign? Cliché pick-up line, be damned. Let’s get a little better acquainted with our astrological signs as we start something new here on Wit & Delight. That’s right: horoscopes! So far, 2017 has been – insert heavy sigh – trying. We could all use a little guidance from the stars these days. …

  8. Some days I feel like a Swiss Army Knife. I have a wide variety of small tools that are useful in the right circumstances. Writer, Designer, Strategist, Irish Dancer (yup, seriously) and Teacher. Over the last few years I’ve had the opportunity to share some knowledge and skills I’ve picked up throughout my career. Advice and wisdom …

  9.  I had the pleasure of meeting Blaire Molitor and Allie Pohlad over five years ago when the concept of a fresh juice bar in Minnesota was considered a wild idea. The pair were looking for a designer to help develop the brand and packaging, so we sat down for tea to discuss their business plan and …

  10. For most of my life, I chased an elusive idea of love. The kind that arrives serendipitously and presents itself with grand gestures. I waited for my modernized white knight to arrive and save me. Save me from what? you may ask. I thought a great love would make everything in life make sense. It would …

  11. Brought to you by Aveda

    Complimentary facials. Guided meditation. Scalp-to-Soul consultations. Aveda is betting on better with a new approach to the retail experience. Headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Aveda recently launched their newly designed Aveda Experience Center, the first retail store of its kind at Southdale Mall in Edina. I was thrilled when Aveda asked me to participate in an evening …

  12. Better late than never, here is our January Reading Edit. This month wore us down for many reasons, and media fatigue was one of the biggest culprits. With so much to read about all the changes happening around the world, we found ourselves looking at our sources of our media in a new light. When I …

  13. Our month-long conversation about what it means to “Love Thy Selfie” has both piqued my interest and made me tired. I sat at the keyboard too long before admitting that I was tangled up in definitions of self-esteem, self-image, self-compassion, self-knowledge…all of this. I was confusing know thyself with treat yo self, and I was tired …
