It has been six years since I left Minnesota to spend a semester at San Jose State University. Well that semester turned into a year and an internship in San Francisco, which led to my first post-college job at an environmental consulting firm and now my current job at NAB.
Despite having lived in California for so long Minnesota is of course still my home and I love going back.
There’s no place like home because…
My family picks me up at the airport with my favorite treats.
Lino Lakes has the best Super Target on the planet.
We have an awesome new ballpark…
…serving tasty brews you can’t get anywhere else.
You never know when someone will break out into song…or a guitar solo.
Fresh fruits and veggies abound…
and people get creative with meat and cheese.
You don’t have to go far to find a spot to canoe…
There are cute towns to visit.
And a cute girl will make you coffee 😉
My dad is a bit of a local celebrity, so we get free mini-golf.
And when there is record-breaking heat, you can see a movie in an air-conditioned theatre for five bucks.
But most of all, it is because I have a fantastic family that there’s just no place like home.
