I didn’t know what to expect from our long weekend trip to Minneapolis, but for some reason I suspected that I would leave the city happy to have acquainted myself with the metropolis, but generally all right with just being pen pals. The sorts of pals that send each other greeting cards around the holidays and maybe check in on favored social media accounts around birthday times. Etc. Etc.
But instead I found Minneapolis had a certain allure. It was vibrant, had lots of good restaurants, at least one beautiful little book store, and I swear I saw way more independent coffee shops than Starbucks as we drove around all weekend. Big points all around. I daresay that instead of just being sporadic pen pals, I would very happily return to Minneapolis for another grand visit and become solid BFFs.
For now however, I give you this video.
