The super moon over the water in Lutsen, Minnesota. Also, you'll notice the clouds spell out "Luce" which means "Light." MAGIC.

I just got back from Minnesota yesterday, and I'm happy to be home, but I miss the North!

I didn't do too much in St. Paul (besides hang out with relatives--my grandma is kind of a badass), but then my cousin, Kayla, and I drove up to Grand Marais, and that's where I felt like magic. 

The road trip to Grand Marais was fun. Kayla and I blasted The Donnas for most of the ride, and had deep-cousin-talks. It was really special to share this time with her. 

We met many colorful people on our journey: a man named Mike who had two heartattacks, a woman named Melissa who was an artist, a man named John who worked for the Outward Bound program. I drank the best Bloody Mary of my life at cute rooftop bar in Grand Marais (there was a large shrimp in it!)

We stopped for Coconut Cream pie in Two Harbors at the infamous, Betty's Pies, on the way to Grand Marais. There was about a 45-minute wait, but it was worth it!

It was so busy up north that we almost didn't have a place to stay! Luckily, there was an opening at the Lutsen Resort (where my moon picture was taken!) 

The weather was beautiful--just how I like it--cool and sunny :)

I would love to go back up there and spend more time. It was so relaxing and majestic.
