Capturing Morning Motivation

The last couple of jogs I’ve been on have been absolutely perfect. Not just the weather, but the stillness and beauty of the sunrises have been stunning.

Strange May…

Well we have had our ups and downs with Minnesota’s weather this spring. We were spoiled with a couple days of 70° followed by a 35° drop in temperatures. This morning it was low 30°s and we saw a couple flurries. No joke! It was a cold dog walking day… praying for warmer days.

Chicken is What’s for Dinner

The Saint Paul Art Crawl

This spring, Lowertown kicked off the Art Crawl with lots of participation in the yarn art. It was very colorful and creative.
