TBT: Cliff Climber

Emily-Door County 1992_0041

TBT brings us back to Door County and the 90s.  Here I am on some cliff of rocks back in 1992 with an old school Timberwolves sweatshirt.* Also, you gotta love the matching scrunchie.   I always loved our camping trips to Door County every year, as it is such a beautiful place *This sweatshirt was probably not old school in 1992--but hipsters in Minnesota would probably pay big bucks for that sweatshirt today. Also, Continue Reading

TBT: Emily’s Goodbye to Milwaukee

going away fiesta

TBT brings us back to a sad time...when I left Milwaukee back in 2011. While I miss Milwaukee, I do really enjoy living in the Twin Cities. When you are leaving your home, obviously you need a going-away party. I love Mexican food, so it was also necessary to stop at one of the many great Mexican restaurants in Milwaukee. You could say we had a Going Away Fiestsa. Here is Amy, Andy, and I outside of the restaurant. I mean when there is Continue Reading

TBT: Tie Dyed in Door County

It is also a gorgeous place to explore with great hiking, awesome beaches for swimming and Continue Reading

TBT: The Technicolor Dream Coat

Emily & Dad coat of many colors

This is my favorite photo I have with my dad. I think I was about 4, so it is late 80s or early 90s. I am wearing Joseph's Technicolor Dream Coat (i.e. a paper bag I colored all over). It was a project I had done in preschool or Sunday School, as we were learning about Joseph's Coat of Many Colors. Amy and I have a pretty awesome dad. Also, if it weren't for the carpeting and the old box tv, you would think my dad is quite the hipster. Continue Reading
