I had a great time in Minnesota with the Lee's the first weekend of October. I was surprised that the autumn leaves weren't as far along and as colorful as they were when I went out the same weekend last year, but after all, I wasn't there to see the autumn colors!!
We took a little day trip to the town of Stillwater, MN, because Adri had heard it was a picturesque small town on the border with Wisconsin. It also claims to be the birthplace of Minnesota.
Stillwater has the one and only Kathe Wohlfahrt store in the United States. Who knew? Since everyone knows my love of German Christmas decorations, you can imagine my delight at finding the store. We went in, but the prices were sooo high that I didn't buy anything. It was fun to see most of the same ornaments and decorations as there were when I worked at the Kathe Wohlfahrt store in Germany twelve years ago.
