For those among us without the curse of springtime allergies, May is just about
the best month to be outside. The blooming cascade of plant life in the Mid-South
is truly a thing of beauty. And with Mothers Day fast approaching, it might be
pertinent to make a quick pit stop and grab an impromptu bouquet of ditch lilies.
And speaking of special women in our lives...
This month, Click celebrates six uniquely Southern women in business from
all walks of life with a very special issue dedicated to spotlighting the best and
brightest in the region. From CEOs and dealmakers to our gold medalist cover
model, Rochelle Stevens, each one is a star in their own right. To see the full list,
check out page 69.
In addition, this month marks the return of our home living section with a
charming Southern chateau located right off the banks of the Mississippi River
(page 83). Special thanks to Jeff Edison for inviting us into his lovely home I
definitely picked up a few design tips from that one.
If youre seeking a cool refreshment, look no further than the perfectly muddled
mixture on page 24, the Black-beery Whiskey Smash. And if that doesnt quite
sate your sweet tooth, take a look at Michelle Hopes entertaining column this
month shes mapped out a one-of-a-kind Sugar Shack Shindig perfect for the
young and young at heart (page 89). For the musically inclined, weve got a bit of
old school and a bit of new school this month with soulful Southaven native Kirby
Lauryen (page 22) and seasoned symphony director Mei Ann Chen (page 20).
So from all of us to all of you: Keep reading. And always remember, in the
immortal words of Lawrence Mr. T Tureaud: Treat your mother right.
