I forgot how amazing Midwest thunderstorms are when they're rolling through. Much more amazing having an expanse of field around, but witnessing one in the city ain't too bad either.

All this rain has me thinking about all things Summer and plants as well. I'm amassing quite a jungle in my apartment. 🌱

Anyone else's allergies completely depleting their energy? 🌾🤧Luckily, last weekend I got as much accomplished in two days as a normal week so I feel ok resting up today (aka binge watching the Dynasty remake on Netflix). Has anyone in ATL seen this? Not the best plot in the world, but it's fun to see all the Atlanta set locations.

Each and every speaker @labmpls #thecollectivempls provided so much info and inspiration. But, what I've carried with me the past few weeks the most is something Eric Dayton (@askovfinlayson, @bachelorfarmer, #keepthenorthcold) said...
___
The lifespan of a company to be Fortune 500 used to be 50 years, then it was 15, and now it's closer to 10. It's been since 1971 that MN has created a Fortune 500 company - 41 years. So, we can't rely on these redwood trees. 
___
Eric then said I hope the people in this room can think big. This is what will drive Minneapolis and MN forward in the coming years.
___
So dream big! Because my idea and your idea, and my hard work and your hard work, could all pay off. And, it could turn into a Fortune 500 company. Or, keep it small - because that's all good too. ✌️

"Using both organic and highly controlled painting techniques, the resulting composition is a compromise between excess and restraint, impulse and logic."
- @whitneywoodbaileyart 
___
So inspired by an exhibition @hathaway_gallery that I viewed with @christina.kwan.art just prior to moving away from Atlanta.
___
I had a very creative upbringing and attended a magnet art high school. However, haven't created (in the physical, traditional art sense) since I graduated 20 years ago.
___
I've felt a longing to get back to it. So, today I organize all of my dusty art supplies and collected objects and paper I've carried with me. And, one of these next quiet Saturday mornings maybe I'll get to it.

It just takes a little longer here in MN, but now I have joy from all the blossoms everyone was posting in April! And, can you believe how green it already is?! Nature is just waiting to burst forth its magic as soon as the snow recedes.

"What I'm learning, essentially, is to stand where I am, plain and sometimes tired. Unflashy, profoundly unspectacular. But present and connected and grounded deeply in the love of God, which is changing everything." Present Over Perfect @sniequist

My favorite photos are those that capture entirely present and uninhibited moments 📷 by @hinch951 on a road trip adventure a few years back.

Anyone contemplating playing hooky today? For real though? I keep doing a double take at the weather...can it really be 78 degrees this afternoon when only 2 weeks ago we were trudging through 2 feet of snow??? #thatsminnesotaforyou

Brunch. Hands down favorite meal of the day. Yes, it's one of the three meals.

My permanent seat. Learning how to "just f'ing do it" (in regards to business), quit doing things when they aren't working, and let go of perfection. #inspired

Minnesota peeps...Have you heard about The Collective Speaker Sessions at LAB next Saturday the 28th from 11-5?? So excited to learn from some super creative and business minded entrepreneurs. I may just park myself in a seat all day...Anyone want to drop lunch on by for me? 😉 📷@labmpls

Looks like this weekends record snowfall will be the last that Winter brings, today's forecasted snow has gone away with Spring quickly slipping in behind with 50's through the weekend. With the snow layer disappearing from the ground, I'll have to learn to nimbly dodge all the potholes that freezing temps and snow plows chip away. Although Atlanta gave me plenty of practice...not sure what their excuse was? 🤷🏼‍♀️😂
