We’ve been living here in good ol’ Minneapolis for almost three years now (WHAT.) and this crazy city still continues to surprise me. If you wake up early in the morning, just an hour or two after the sunrise, you’ll encounter these golden hues that illuminate the streets, the bridges, and the Mississippi, just begging to be the subject of some poem. Darrin and I have been waking up earlier and earlier this spring, no thanks to that darned life path we chose called “graduate school,” but I hope our early mornings continue once we have an official summer break. Being awake with the chirping birds and the golden sunshine and the Mississippi River isn’t such bad company. Especially with a hot cup of coffee in your hand.

Today, however, Darrin and I are road tripping down to Iowa to cheer on our rockstar sister as she graduates from college. As she struts across the stage to receive her degree, Darrin will silently clap like the dignified man that he is, and I’ll obnoxiously shout in a high voice “WHOOOOP! WHOOOOOOOOP!” to which Darrin will respond with a smirk as he shakes his head at my lack of decorum (per usual). I’m really looking forward to it. 😉

Also, if you’re looking for a summer handbag and you’re looking for a discount (a happy combination), look no further! You can receive 10% off your handbag purchase at Mellow World if you sign up and use promo code SOMETIMESGRACEFULLY ! Yay!

Have a great day!

    Love the look! I agreed with the surprises and the golden hues. I’ve lived in and around Minneapolis all my life and am constantly impressed by it’s beauty. I am also seriously loving that bucket bag. Will have to pick one up 🙂 http://www.mymonochromaticlife.com

      Thanks girly! It’s such a great bag! I carry probably way too much stuff in it throughout the day. And Minneapolis has so many beautiful spots to see! Love it! 🙂
