There was no escape from the stress of the day to day work life for me in the twin cities. How had I not seen that as a little girl growing up in Duluth dreaming of the big city life with so many things to do? My true respect for Duluth came 4 months after my move to Minneapolis. The adventure I thought was there was actually in Duluth where I could escape from it all five minutes from my work or home. The place where a moment outside could release all tension while simultaneously invigorating and inspiring you. My return to Duluth came three years later, with a full understanding and appreciation of the unbelievable town we all get to call home.
