I'm not going to lie, the majority of the time I complain about Minnesota... You know, the weather and lack of things to do.  BUT, in all reality, when you sit back and think about it, we have some incredibly gorgeous things here.  Yesterday I took a little day trip up to Wayzata.  Far enough away to make you feel like you're getting away, but not far enough that you're spending much of your time on the road.  The city is already beautiful enough as it is, but this time of year makes it pretty to the max!  The trees had a fresh coat of snow and Christmas lights lit up the streets.  Pictures just don't do it justice, but here's a shot of the patio at Sunsets Wayzata.
