dear minnesota…

…slowly but surely you remind me why I love you during the summer.

This weekend I:

-biked 7 miles around the lake and proved to Nate that no, he can NOT make it 6 miles in the time it takes me to do 3.

-bought my wedding dress!

-chose our photographer

-washed our car

-spent time with my sister

-watched baseball!

uh huh.

think big

People are willing to give you what you ask.

But you have to ask.


probable – the mathematical or statistical probability something will occur


likely – the realistic representation of what will actually take place

i have a dream to one day live free of snow and ice

break the rules

Until presently I’ve been reasonably sure I don’t have any stray, unidentified children clomping their way around this fine globe of ours.  And that’s no accident.  Then I heard this clip on the Power Trip Morning Show on the drive to my office today and now I’m not so sure:

This one’s going to give somebody a run for their money, eh?  Go get ’em girl.

I’ve broken several rules here so that’s enough talk of kids for the remainder of the year. I think I just got pregnant watching this.


A lady of forty-seven who had been married twenty-seven years and has six children knows what love really is and once described it for me like this: ‘Love is what you’ve been through with somebody.’
James Thurber

My parents hid this in a cabinet while in town Friday and called me yesterday morning to tell me where to find it.  And I don’t know…I just think that’s the cutest thing ever.
