Ho Hey…I kinda like it in Minnesota…


I know I’ve alluded to this, but I am just going to come right out and admit it officially. I really like Minnesota. So much so that I can even call it “Minne-SOTA.” For a while, that was an aversion to me, and I could only call it Minneapolis because it didn’t sound so Midwest. But in all honesty we couldn’t have picked a better town to live in while we were completely blind in NC. It’s total suburbia out here but it’s a short hop, skip and a jump to downtown Minneapolis and what they call “Uptown” which is more hippy/boutique/urban outfitter types. Our jobs are going good and we have this little baby on the way which makes me want to squeal with excitement whenever I think about it. I can’t wait to put him in hats. I still don’t feel like it’s quite “home” yet, just a pretty rad place we’ve landed momentarily. No place really feels like home at the moment, I guess because we are still in transition. We haven’t even been here 6 months yet, and I’m convinced you need a full year somewhere (sometimes longer) to fully adjust. But I’m enjoying the change (climate and all ya’ll!)<-I never say that but felt it was appropriate given the fact we just moved from the south. For all you loved ones checking in, we are doing just dandy and enjoying life. Hopefully some of you will be visiting soon!

PS. If you have a down-jacket, a garage and boots it’s not even that cold here….and the best part is the SUN is ALWAYS SHINING.
