Sorry it’s taken me ages to post anything. We’re finally settling in to our new apartment in downtown Minneapolis and we’re loving it. One of the highlights: we’re 2 blocks from Pizza Lucé now, which is newly renovated, and as I’ve mentioned before, has mouthwatering soy cheese pizza and a fantastic vegan chocolate peanut butter dessert. If we were completely devoid of willpower, we’d eat there all the time. But hopefully we can limit ourselves to a couple times a month. I mean, come on. Now that we’re downtown, we have lots of restaurants within walking distance. It’s time to branch out.
But we’re absolutely loving our new location. I found the most amazing walking/biking path across the Mississippi, which I will be taking to class every day once I start school. It goes right across the only natural waterfall along the Mississip. and there are all these cool ruins that have been uncovered. It’s really magical.

And our apartment is so cool! Definitely the best place we’ve ever lived. It’s a loft with polished cement floors, and super high ceilings in the Warehouse District, also known as the North Loop. I apologize for bragging, but when you’ve lived in as many sub-par apartments as we have, it’s such a relief to live somewhere that we love, finally. And we feel so comfortable here already. We’ve entered the realm of hip young adults living in the city. And our neighbors are so friendly.

So that’s what I’ve been up to!
