Every year since I was about two years old, my family has gathered for reunions at the lakes of Minnesota. This afternoon I will be heading up to our family lake cabin called “Engstrom Beach” for a week and a half. I am so ready to swim into the fresh water, slalom ski and make s’mores by the fire. Around twenty of my cousins (ranging from age 34 to three months old) will be there, along with my aunts, uncles and grandparents. Every evening we are blessed with a painting in the sky–these picturesque sunsets.
My mouth is already watering as I think about my favorite food spots in Minnesota. Zorbaz on the Lake has phenomenal, unique pizzas plus a great environment. Maple Beach on Lake Lida has the best burgers and BLTs. You can’t beat Nootzi’s on Main in Dent, Minnesota for homemade caramel and cinnamon rolls. Mmmmm!
I will be taking a vacation from blogging while I am away, but follow me on Instagram as I document fun memories through pictures. When I return, lots of craziness will begin to unfold…my family is moving, I will be getting ready to depart for my semester in Spain and I will be preparing for Arizona State University’s Panhellenic Recruitment. I promise to sneak in a few delicious posts amid the activity.
Have you ever been to Minnesota before? It is so beautiful in the summer time (I couldn’t handle a winter there…it gets in the negative numbers)!
