sps006 one // toes

I traveled back to Minnesota for the first time in 8 years. It’s a place filled with some of the dearest people in the world to me and so many memories. I neglected to properly remember how cold Minnesota (and snow!) can be in the right season. My kooky kazak slippers and the house felines were welcome sources of warmth.  I now understand why cats follow the sun around the house at all costs!  I also reconnected with my favorite people, the Lipperts, and watched my lovely roommate from college, Sara, marry her sweetheart John.

Little moments are what I take away and replay in my mind as the plane takes off East once again… watching Sara and John’s first dance as married people, noting the quirky and charming idiosyncrasies of Minnesota and its residents, being in the audible presence of Molly while she sings, watching Eli ride bikes and hit baseballs into snowdrifts that should be long gone, becoming one of the many enchanted followers of the bewitching and mischievous Hannah, and to once again share a beer with the Hamster. Isn’t it strange and wonderful and the tiniest bit bittersweet that as the years pass, sooner or later, we all grow up.
