A common Great Lakes scene; among the five lakes there are 63 commercial ports. (And did you know there's a live website that tells you which freighter is going by? My mom is smart😘)

minnesotan winters call for a hot chocolate

My absolute, most-favorite event of the year is the Union Depot’s Annual Holiday Bake Sale. Hosting the top Twin Cities bakeries for 5 years in a row, it certainly doesn’t disappoint! More than just a bake sale, it includes all kinds of events like baking and cooking demonstrations and musical performances. This year, there was even a holiday cake walk sponsored by The Germanic American Institute! Every year I buy so many baked goods that I can barely hold my camera, let alone walk back to my car! I tend to get very “involved” when baked goods are offered. My camera is covered in frosting, and rightfully so. I fell in love with Groundswell’s Ugly Sweater Cookies, The Buttered Tin’s Sugar Cookie Christmas Trees and Grandma’s Gourmets Dilly Beans.
Featured Bakeries and Vendors: North Mallow, Heavenly Treats, Potter’s Pasties, Bread Art, Curly Girlz Candy, Nikkolette’s Macarons, Cookie Cart, T-Rex Cookie Company, Something Sweet by Maddie Lu, Sarah Jane’s Bakery, St. George Greek Orthodox Church, The Buttered Tin, Ink Sweets, Groundswell Midway, Black Dog Cafe, Groveland Confections, ALMA, MinneCookies, The Sweet Retreat, Mademoiselle Miel, Germanic American Institute, Antoinette’s Little Bakeshop, Amy’s classic Confections, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Jamazing, Double Take Salsa, Patti’s Granola, Grandma’s Gourmets, Panache, Blue Heron Soap Company, Wild Country Maple Products, and Vom Fass.
I HIGHLY recommend adding the Bake Sale to your yearly holiday traditions.

Minneapolis, MN. These are the scales and fins of an giant fish ice sculpture I came across while walking around a freezing Minneapolis a couple of years ago. You have to have appreciation for an art form that uses a chainsaw to do the carving.

The beautiful blur of a cardinal.

Full moon, full hearts, full bellies. Camp is about more than food. We want to build a community of people that can laugh together and share simple joys and experiences. We've been so lucky to have campers that make that happen. #chefcamp

Sometimes the best course of action is to jump in headfirst and hope for the best. || Marine on St Croix, MN

I nearly threw in the towel and ended my streak today. I wanted to treat myself by sleeping in and making a nice breakfast for my family so I didn't get outside when I had a chance. Then after my husband went out to do chores, I couldn't find the safety key for the treadmill. I searched for it but was also trying to get all three kids bathed so we could go to a family gathering. All day it bothered me and I started to come up with excuses. My knee has been bothering me. It's just a streak. It's probably not good for your body anyway. After the gathering, we went shopping so we got home late. Still couldn't find the key (some little person must have hid it). I did my daily plank and thought again about quitting. But why quit over one measly mile. I threw on my jacket, hat, headlamp, vest and went out the door before I could change mind - still in my jeggings..haha. Call me crazy. 😜Not giving up that easy. It should have been six miles but 1.3 will do. I'm still doing better than the old me. #rwrunstreak #minnesotawinter #mnrunner #nightrun #justrun #thisismyminnesota #getoutstayout #motherrunner #outrunyourexcuses #weightlossjourney #betterthaniwas #positivity #runnersofinstagram #runlikeagirl #runhappy

{On My List} I don’t think it will fit in my stocking, but I’m asking Santa for one of these hand-cut steel Lake Superior silhouettes, made in Duluth, MN, by the husband of @fondofthatfinery. If you want one too, send her a DM, and check out her feed for beautiful sterling silver jewelry that WILL fit in your stocking. (📷: @fondofthat)

There is a big difference between what we long for,
what we settle for,
and what we are meant for... #sunsetchasing #forbes #mn #minnesota #thisismyminnesota #myminnesota #sunset #sunset_ig #skyporn #skypainters #whatareyoumeantfor

Thank you for making 2017 an awesome year in photography. I’ve met some awesome people over the course of the year through Facebook and Instagram. It was a big year just not in photography but in my personal life as well. Here’s to making 2018 an awesome year as well.

The Monstrous Bonze Doors of the Plummer Building of the Mayo Medical Complex in Rochester, MN.
..
..
Each door weighs 4000 lb, stands 16 ft high, and is 5½ in thick. The doors consist of forty-two 18 × 21-in panels. Six repeating symbolic panels and 2 repeating ornamental patterns are interspersed throughout each door. The symbolic panels show a woman kneeling next to her child to represent maternity and the home, a figure holding an overflowing cornucopia and a shock of wheat to represent agriculture, a figure with a paint palette and brushes to represent the fine arts, a figure with a lamp and scroll to represent education, and a figurewith a hook and crane to represent the mechanical arts. The ornamental panels have a central button surrounded by floral patterns and smaller etchings of flora and fauna (eg, squirrels, pinecones) indigenous to Minnesota. The central buttons depict either a turkey or the face of a Native American.

The intent of the original designers was that these doors would be closed at the end of each clinic business day. However, the closing of the doors has instead become a memorial to important historical events or a tribute to the memory of a famous or influential person. Some events that have received this honor include the deaths of Drs William J. and Charles H. Mayo (1939), the assassination of President John F. Kennedy (1963), and most recently, in commemoration of the victims of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

Maple Leaves and Snow

This occurred after the first snow of the season. Some of the maple leaves hadn't quite finished with autumn yet.

I don’t know much of this building. There is nothing on Google Maps and I found an article that stated it was once the American Express Data Center... but that was in 2014. However, that didn’t stop me from admiring the beautiful architecture. .
