After 22 years in Los Angeles, I recently moved to Minneapolis.
I’ve been told that I’m brave, and crazy. Both true. Yet, I
survived my second winter, and learned the importance of 4wd and

My culture shock is beginning to wear off. I’m getting used to how
nice, and normal, and sane, and blonde everyone is. But I’m still

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Holding doors for people, watching, diving in, starting over,
