Ever wondered what it’s like to live in Minnesota? I have.
When I found out that I’d be moving to Rochester in the summer of 2016, I expected a total prairie with bison still roaming around freely. I thought about Laura Ingalls Wilder. I thought about cold weather. I thought about Prince and was hopeful for a buzzing music scene. I pictured playfully arguing with Wild fans about my Penguins.
I’m happy to report that I found all of that… and more.
I didn’t picture lighthouses up nort’ or great outdoor opportunities scattered throughout the whole state. I didn’t picture a huge craft beer scene. I didn’t know what a Juicy Lucy was. I’d never had a cheese curd before. I didn’t imagine being welcomed by a community with open arms as quickly as I was. Now I can’t live without any of the previously mentioned pieces of awesome!
This has been my Minnesota. I hope you enjoy my account!
