Earlier this week, I spent 48 hours in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Prior to this trip, I’d never been. Things I’ve heard over the years about Minneapolis:
- It’s really cold.
- It’s in the middle of nowhere.
- It’s the place that no one wants to go to, but doesn’t want to leave when they get there.
- It’s really, really cold.
This past weekend, I was invited to experience a sampling of what MarketStreet, one of the largest open-air marketplaces in the Greater Boston area, has to offer.
Living just south of Boston, Lynnfield (on the North Shore) just isn’t a place that I frequent often. It’s about a 45 minute drive. But when I was offered the opportunity to join some fellow Boston bloggers, to “stroll the street”, I was all in. We spent the day “retail hopping” from one shop to another where we learned about some of the outdoor mall’s newest boutiques and foodie hot spots.
The weather in Boston has been all over the place lately. I blogged a couple months ago about how excited I was that spring was almost here, and then just days later we got hit with freezing temps once again (spoke too soon, I guess!). Just this past weekend it was 82 one day and 52 the next. Mother Nature – what is up!?
I hate tea. Always have. But I so desperately want to like it. I’ve tried so many times. I’ve tried all the styles – green, black, herbal. All the flavors – from fruits to flowers. Cold. Hot. You name it, I’ve tried it.
The “American Dream” was real for Carolina Salinas and Carolina Garcia, so they packed up, left Caracas, and headed for the states.
