At the kitchen table

Today is Wednesday and everyone is out and I find myself alone for the first time in almost a week. It's so peaceful sitting here at the kitchen table in our little blue and white house. Our trip is going really well except for the jet-lag, not fun!

I'm loving the different varieties of food here, so much is fresh and organic. And we are all watching out for the tiny squirrels who jump and play in the huge old oak trees in our garden. Last night a chipmunk was hanging around the back door too!

 We have visited the amazing Mall of America (omg) and today the kids are at the Como zoo. Still lots to do on our wish list, hopefully our time wont fly by too quickly.

The area we are staying in here in St Paul is simply stunning. There has been a lot of rain and it is so warm that the greenness is almost overwhelming.

Truly an emerald city. I just love it here, the people are very friendly, it's clean and quiet and there are so many amazing houses and gardens. I wish you could click your shoes together three times and come and walk with me through the pretty streets. How is your world looking today? See you soon lovely ones xo
