During our recent trip to Madison, Wisconsin, we were blessed with nice weather rather unexpectedly. So, we joyfully added a nature jaunt to Olbrich Botanical Gardens to our trip. Visiting in late December, I was quite surprised that we could truly enjoy the outdoor trails but we did!

Ingebretsen's: A Slice of Scandinavia in Minneapolis

Ingerbretsen's: A Slice of Scandinavia in Minneapolis

Ingerbretsen's: A Slice of Scandinavia in Minneapolis

Ingebretsen's Nordic Marketplace has been treating Minneapolis to a slice of Scandinavia since 1921. If you have been reading awhile, you know that I love all things Scandinavia. I guess I am Danish....so it makes sense! I definitely had to make it to Ingebretsen's on our recent trip to Minneapolis.

Russian Art and History Intrigue at The Museum of Russian Art in Minneapolis

The Museum of Russian Art in Minneapolis opened up to us quite the treasure trove of Russian and Soviet art on exhibit. None of us were too familiar with Russian art, so we were really unsure of what to expect. After leaving, I can say that The Museum of Russian Art is one of our favorite museums. We loved the art and the layout! We also learned so much!
