major move, then you know firsthand it can be a very humbling experience. three years of tears and practically sliding through traffic lights, this southern belle had to wisely toughen up! over time, i fell in love. from the changing seasons to the midwestern lifestyle, and i love it here.
Playing tour guide to first time visitors has become one of my greatest joys. i feel so much pride seeing the city win people over for the first time. Weekends are frequently spent entertaining at our home and filled with all kinds of activities. Bike rides, dinners downtown, concerts at the harriet Bandshell, wine tasting, apple picking, tubing, snow shoeing, or enjoying the sun set while cruising on the pontoon, are just some of the many experiences to see and do.
my husband likes to jokingly say, “minneapolis is the best kept secret” and i totally agree. the first snowfall, first melt, first dock jump, watching the leaves change from yellow to deep red, and knowing it will star t all over again provides my soul great comfort. it’s pretty wonderful up here in fly over country, (but remember, that’s our little secret!)
