Woodbury Magazine June 2023

Some say that the high school years are the best of your life—I would argue against that. Each period in our lives is unique, and core memories are made throughout our childhood, teenage years, into adulthood and beyond. The ability to share these moments with our family and friends is special and not to be taken for granted. In this issue of Woodbury Magazine, we’re touching on these topics and more.

The age-old phrase, Love Thy Neighbor, couldn’t be a more fitting verse for the families that we’ve connected with in these pages. Meet Our Shop Bridal owner Kathy Lipps and her daughters, who all work (in one way or another) with the business. From consulting to creating the murals on the walls, Lipps says the uniquely focused bridal boutique wouldn’t be what it is without the help of her family.

In the midst of the pandemic, the Sieffert family decided to create something to bring people together: GraduateTheU, a board game inspired by their own memories at the University of Minnesota. As an alumni myself—and without giving away too much of the game!—I’ll say that the Gopher-inspired game certainly takes me back to my own time on the Twin Cities campus, as players weave through iconic and inspirational places throughout campus. Read more about their story on page 20.

Writer Emily Gedde connects with Woodbury High School alumni Abbey and Justin Feldkamp, who discuss their love for our community and one another. Abbey says, “In this ever-changing, fast-paced world, we really want to focus on strengthening the one constant—family and community.”

June 21 marks the first day of summer—I’ll be spending it with my family. How about you? See you next month, readers!
