We had a whirlwind adventure out in Orange County, California, the week before Christmas. We stayed with our friends in their super sweet French Cottage.

We thought our far flung travels to the north had ceased for the project but there was one more in store for us. This was actually to be the longest trek we were to take on this project, over a 6 hour drive. We left Saint Paul in warm light jacket weather and drove directly … Continue reading Roseau, Minnesota
