We feel extremely blessed to live in Northern Minnesota at the moment. The natural beauty creates this tranquility that just isn't found in a big city such as New York or even Minneapolis. Max has commented many times on the peace that comes with residing next to a body of water. I tend to agree. Every morning we can see the sunrise peeking above the trees and rooftops from our apartment, and in the wintertime steam rises from the warmer temperatures of the water. It's hard to not take a billion photographs everyday, but quite honestly even if we did, it would never grow old.
