30 December 2010

Fresh fields.

2010 brought with it new challenges, tearful good-byes and exciting surprises. A big part of me is ready to welcome a new year with open arms. Along with a heaping helping of collards and black-eyed peas, I'm ringing in 2011 with a major move to Minneapolis, where I've landed a new job. More about that later.. . For now I am neck-deep in all-things-moving - apartment hunting, packing, winter boot scouting and psyching myself up to be the new girl in town again.
I'm looking very forward to getting back to work, exploring an unknown-t0-me city and seeing where this next step takes me. Tips and advice are most welcome! Looks like 2011 is gonna be a great year. See you on the other side.

Good luck wishes on the new move. I went to the U and miss Mpls on a daily basis. Oh the lakes in the summertime -- nothing beats them! In time, go visit Stillwater -- you'll see some antiques there.

3 shops you must check out (because the owners of all 3 are very nice people). Blacklist Vintage. Kopplins Coffee. Butter Bakery.

Enjoy the snow!!
