Welcome to the Upper Midwest.

Life in the Upper Midwest

I could not, could not resist posting this picture. When I saw it last weekend, I forced Joel to pull over so we could capture it. Okay, this is a little further north than I live. But, you get the picture! I have moved into a very new, very different place. One where I can buy a gun, a video game, and some books for my child in the same place.

Also a place where when you walk into a store, you may see Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox salt and pepper shakers (which I could not resist buying). Oh yeah, and you're likely to see a fishing bobber propane tank in random front yards.

Although I hope to refrain from growing a mullet (okay, truth be told, I've only seen a handful of mullets so far), I definitely plan to embrace this life while we're living it. Or at least to enjoy all the photo opportunities it presents itself!

  2. lol. this reminds me of a shopping center in a nearby town that boasted a marquis reading "DONUTS DAYCARE GUNS". what could be better for your kids, right? thank goodness the daycare moved - and just in time. the marquis now reads "DONUTS GUNS ARCHERY"
