May 1st!

Monday, May 1st, 2017

It’s snowing. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love snow… But there comes a point where I don’t want to see it for three months straight unless I go on a vacation to the arctic. I don’t want to see it on May 1st. It’s not a lot. The picture hardly shows the white flecks, but still, it’s May 1st!!!!! Oh Duluth, you are a crazy city. 

Duluth Spring Weekend

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

This weekend was filled with a lot of adventure and activity. The weather was absolutely beautiful for all kinds of outdoor plans. Below are a few pictures that I captured this weekend as I enjoyed the outdoors in Duluth with my friends and girlfriend. With such great spring weather I am excited for summer to get here…we might have to wait a few weeks. The weather outlook is showing 3-5 inches of snow on Thursday. Crazy how you can get a sunburn one day in Duluth and a couple days later you have to put your snow boots back on!


Spring in Duluth

Saturday, April 22nd, 2017

Hello all! Today I wanted to talk about the weather. I understand that this is a topic usually discussed as awkward small talk, when talking about a natural disaster, or when maybe you hear it when you turn the news on in the morning as background noise; whatever your case may be I wanted to talk about the weather in the case of Spring time in Duluth. This past week has been CRAZY when it comes to weather. I have lived in Minnesota my entire life and I thought that I knew a lot about the weather and it’s patterns of unpredictability; I was wrong. This week in Duluth the weather goes as follows; Tuesday: rain, Wednesday: cloudy, Thursday: snow and ice, Friday: Sunny, and today: sunny. I don’t know how it can be snowing one day and then completely sunny and 65 degrees the next day, but in Duluth, MN, that is what happens. However, I wouldn’t change this unpredictability for anything. Today is BEAUTIFUL and the fact that we had snow the other day, makes it that much better.

March Into Mentoring

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

I was on tv for one whole second last Friday! March Into Mentoring is a campaign hosted by Mentor Duluth, a program I am proud to volunteer for, to get 31 new mentors to sign up in 31 days! Mentor Duluth matches youth in the community with responsible adults to do fun activities together. My match and I are currently celebrating our two year anniversary! Taleea is a freshman in high school and we spend a lot of time doing arts and crafts, cooking, seeing movies, and talking about college planning. In our one second television debut, we are dancing in the rain at the annual Mentor Duluth barbecue. Mentoring has been a great experience for me and Taleea and I highly encourage you to consider joining Mentor Duluth, especially if you plan to live in Duluth over the summers. Taleeas little brother has been on the waiting list for a mentor for over two years and so have 200+ other children. Join Mentor Duluth, be a part of the community, and make a difference in someone’s life.
