Honey, I’m homeeeee! The last 4 weeks have been IN. SANE. I traveled to 5 different places including Wisconsin, Arizona, Denver, New Jersey, and New York City. Guess what? I am home in Minneapolis until Thanksgiving shenanigans start in November minus a quick trip to Madison for the Badger Homecoming (I’ll be wearing a Minnesota shirt under my red shirt).
I can not begin to tell you how happy I am to be home. I’m happy to be sleeping in my own bed. I’m happy to be working out on my own schedule. And I’m happy to be making my own food. I’m especially happy that this week and next is peak leaf changing in the Twin Cities. You bet yer bippy I’ll be making my way to the St. Croix and Lebanon Hills to fully take advantage of these beautiful colors.
