Minneapolis doesn't really come to mind when you think of "top places I'd love to live", but I've never seen a major city so clean and quiet. The whole place was lush, serene, and gorgeous. That's my kind of town.
They also have some amazing mid-century homes and the best thrifts I've ever seen. I'm kinda freakin' jealous. Too bad my suitcase was already full of Ikea or I would have snatched it all it all up.
Speaking of Ikea, everything made it back safely save for a small scratch on one picture frame. Whew! I had serious doubts as to whether we'd be able to get those suitcases stowed.
Now, I know that some of you retro purists may frown upon my Ikea-shopping ways. In my defense, some of the stuff there is pretty cool and there's no way that I'm gonna pass up a $29.99 goose down comforter and $5.99 down pillows!
