Neighborhood Tour: Highland Along The Mississippi

I have decided since my last neighborhood tour that I would like to make this some sort of installment on my blog. I don’t know if it will be every week or every other week, it all kind of depends on when I get to spend time with my boyfriend, San, because he has the wheels. I really like touring neighborhoods though and I think people like reading about them, so whenever I can I will be sure to blog about

Revamping Recipes: Utilizing The Day of Rest

I had an epiphany while surfing the web last Friday. I was reading my favorite blogs and stumbled upon Sweetnicks which had a post about Pasta With Chicken Sausage and Broccoli.

Well now, I’ve decided I want my blog name to serve a purpose and actually relate to what I blog about. I don’t want to ditch the dream aspect of it, because that means a lot to me and fits, but I want something more

Linmar Gardens

Today has been a very gloomy, rainy day in the Twin Cities. I decided to find inspiration in more happy places which brought me back to my vacation to Galena, IL. I mentioned my love of historical towns but never shared any information on the amazing garden tour I went on. My boyfriend and I went to Linmar Gardens for a romantic tour through the garden followed by a picnic, which included an amazing French version of a tuna salad sandwich. More on that
