The LUX To Do List: April

Posted: Apr 06 2016 | Author: Marielle T

The season best suited for exploring is spring. With the sudden bursts of new life and the resurgence of old, retracing your steps in the familiar seems like stepping down entirely new paths. It's a time to plan big trips, check-in on your New Year's resolutions, and look forward to the season unfolding all around you. 
 
This month we're eager to adventure into the unknown, and especially excited about celebrating life as April is LUX's birthday month which is just one of our fabulous To Do List events. So pull on your sandals (because the snow is finally gone!) and get to the endless adventure that awaits you just outside your doorstep!
