A perfect day in Minneapolis

This morning was absolutely gorgeous as I ran by Lake Calhoun and Lake Harriet. Fall colors, balmy weather, sun shining off the lakes. I stopped by the rose garden to literally smell the roses and slowed to walk through the Peace Garden. I wound my way to the soccer fields to meet up with Dan and the kids. There I greeted all sorts of friends from our communities of Lyndale Neighborhood, Barton School and Joyce Preschool. Later we met up with our neighborhood camping crew at Minnehaha Falls for some bbq and frisbee and finally ended with dinner with our brother-in-law and a sleepover with the nephews.

A perfect day and one that makes me realize how fortunate we are to live where we live and share in some incredible communities. Even as the excitement is starting to build about our upcoming journey and even as I'm secure in the knowledge of all the opportunities in front of us, its still hard to not feel some sadness in regards to relinquishing all this - even if just for a year.
