I just returned from a long anticipated 2-week trip to Korea. It was a wonderful trip – I could have stayed for two more weeks! My son was born in Korea so the first ten days were spent with a tour organized by AdopteeBridge and the remainder was on our own.

Whenever our Minnesota winter gets extreme, Facebook gets a few images of people’s feet in Wonder Bread bags. Many of us remember moon boots. I did not have them, but 90% of the kids in the 3rd grade did and they all had bread bags inside them to keep the kids’ feet wa...

My sister visited recently. She lives in Sacramento and wanted to escape their lovely springtime for a few days of sleet and cold in Minnesota. (Not sure why she came in March, but she is always welcome!)
