Editor's Letter




Well, I’m not really sure if we ever thought it would arrive, but SPRING has finally SPRUNG! It is amazing the difference a little sunshine and warm air can make. This is a month where
we celebrate the birth of nature as the sun’s warmth wakes the sleeping plants. We also celebrate those who have nurtured us into our future selves, our mothers. Somehow, they each seem to manage a household full of lives all at the same time, and we are happy to share stories of how a few Murfreesboro Moms do just that.

This month, I hope you enjoy learning more about one of the most popular destinations in Murfreesboro: Downtown. It’s rare that you swing through the square when it isn’t hopping
with activity: attorneys and clients walking to and from court, shoppers enjoying the many boutiques, or diners checking out the delectable restaurants. Even on the weekend, you will find festivals, an amazing Saturday market or even a busy nighttime crowd, which you can read about in our story about the Arts.

Downtown is easily a one stop shop for so many things! Inside, you’ll find historical insight into many longstanding businesses in town that started their legacy downtown, as well as highlights of businesses that have opened their doors within the past year.

A highlight of each issue comes through the coverage of the many events where each of
you give back to you’re the town you call home. You’ll see quite a few examples of downtown
involvement here, too! From the much-anticipated annual Center for the Arts BASH, Rock the Block with the Chamber of Commerce to the Art Crawl, downtown was hoppin’ as usual last month! It certainly doesn’t end there! You supported the Special Olympics, Earth Day, four-legged family members and so much more! There is never a dull moment in Murfreesboro!

It is my pleasure to get to greet you each month with highlights that you’ll see as you peruse
our product. We work hard to bring you a magazine that can truly be utilized as more than just a quick read. We want to be a true resource for all things Murfreesboro, and for that, we thank you.

Without your submissions, suggestions, and feedback, we could never be as comprehensive. Keep ‘em coming!
