New discovery last night just a short distance from the #finalfour craziness. @norseman_distillery feels more like a cozy restaurant than a warehouse distillery. The patio opens April 19th!

The pottery I made is out of the kiln! Two yellow plates and a dotted pot.

It’s like Spring overnight once the snow and ice start melting! These last few weeks have been refreshing and I can’t wait for some serious patio time in the coming weeks...or even a dip in the lake now that the beach has been uncovered 😉

I’ve been in MN a year now (as of March 1st). Can you believe it?! Time has flown by! I was welcomed in last Spring with a record setting April. And, now this Winter with record setting snowfall totals again.

I’ve learned that rolling your window down is not a good way to get the snow off. It just falls inside the car onto your seat (and you) instead. I’ve learned that it’s best to clean the foot of snow off the top of your car so it doesn’t slide forward onto your windshield while you’re going down the interstate. I’ve also learned oftentimes you can’t see the lanes on the road so you should just make up your own. And, how best to avoid cars that are spinning and skidding into the ditch. And, that you shouldn’t stop on hills or you might slide down backwards and sideways. To leave 15 minutes early to go anywhere so you have time to get bundled up, clean the car off (and shoveled out), and warmed up. And, lastly that a person needs Summer jeans and Winter jeans. The Winter jeans need to be 2 sizes bigger than the Summer jeans to fit leggings underneath. #minnesnowta

Tried my hand on the potters wheel yesterday @theworkshopmpls. My attempts at making a bowl were comical, so I stuck to pushing the clay out into plates instead. What amazed me was how quickly your mind zones in on the wheel and off anything else going on. So incredibly relaxing.

I’m back home in mpls after a lovely, restful week at my parents. It will be in the negatives much of the next week, so it would be easy to hibernate inside. But, my motto is taken from the MN lottery commercial that is playing non-stop on Spotify...”We can always put more underwear under the underwear under our outerwear.”

Enjoyed the heavy snow today with a long walk through the woods, savoring the crunch, crunch underfoot.

I doubt many people are going outside today with the snow and freezing temps across much of the country #hygge. This is an adorable house in my neighborhood I spotted while on a snowy walk last Spring.

Someone’s getting some snail mail! I made these “hello” envelopes @mujiusa in Brooklyn during a recent trip. Muji is a Japanese store that sells stationery, home goods, beauty products, clothing, etc. And, their focus is on minimalist design, recycling, avoidance of waste in production and packaging, and no logo/brand policy. They had a cute station set up with all kinds of stamps you could use to decorate anything you purchased in the store. I got a pack of 50 kraft flap envelopes for only a few dollars and stamped all of them with something different!

First winter back and there’s been sooo little snow. I did manage to find a little bit this week about 40 minutes north of the cities.🤞🏻for some heavy flakes soon.
