This is Minnesota right now. We’ve had nearly 50 inches of snow near the Twin Cities, and it’s in the negative digits. Everyone is whining about the long, brutally cold winter, and yet, I am the strange one. Cold doesn’t bother me. Snow is only an issue if I have to commute. I like layers. I like “bundling up.” I love soup. I adore cute boots. And I never tire of the winter routine. Perhaps this Kansas girl is still in love with her adopted state. Just a guess.
Husband and I made a stop at the Weisman Art Museum on the University of Minnesota campus this afternoon to check out Mohamed Mumin’s exhibit, The Youth/Dhallinyarada, a portrait series of 13 Somalian-American men. Stunning.

In celebration of the bill most assumed would pass, Saint Paul Mayor Chris Coleman had these flags placed on the Wabasha Street Bridge today and declared the bridge the “Freedom to Marry Bridge” for the week.
The Twitterverse lit up this afternoon in celebration of the passage. One tweet that made me pause was a statement that went something along the lines of, “Proud of my state. Proud my daughter will never know marrying someone you love was once illegal.”
