Girl's Trip {Minnesota}

This year is going to be filled with my favorite thing {travel} - starting with a girl's trip I took to visit my sister in Minnesota a couple weeks ago.  She's lived in Saint Paul for awhile now, and I don't really know what her life is like out there, so I've been itching to go.  When our Mom's 60th birthday came around, we decided that a girl's trip out to Minnesota would be the perfect way to celebrate and spend some quality time together - something that's hard to come by these days since we live in three different cities!

I really enjoyed getting to know the twin cities while I was there.  Saint Paul and Minneapolis seemed like cities built around the milling industry.  There were so many old grain and flour mills - some still working, others turned into new businesses and restaurants.  Every building seemed to be historic, and the houses in the neighborhoods near where my sister lives all look like little cottages, right out of a fairytale. 

Visiting the Stone Arch Bridge, the ruins of an old flour mill, Minnehaha Falls, the Como Sunken Garden, walking along Grand Avenue, cracking up at Comedy Sportz, and eating some incredible waffles while standing at the counter {because it was so PACKED inside} were some of the highlights of my trip.  Although it was a bit chilly compared to our sunny and 80 degree weather we had been experiencing in Austin, it was such a great time - one of those trips that just satisfies your soul - full of relaxation, good food, and lots of laughs.
