Our first week as Minnesotans has come and gone! Here’s what we’ve been up to.

Our first official week as Minnesotans has flown by!

Over the past week, beyond our everyday work, we’ve been trying our best to balance exploring our new area and getting settled into our new home.

On Saturday, we went to the Saint Paul Farmers Market, had lunch at Foxy Falafel, and worked on a few projects around the house. On Sunday, we had coffee at Bootstrap Coffee Roasters and went to IKEA for curtains. (We may or may not have tried the plant-based meatballs at IKEA!)

Over the course of the week, we made a lot of progress; now, we’re fully unpacked and organized. I am really excited for the weekend ahead, when we can focus on the details like decorating!

Overall, my favorite part of our new house is our upstairs loft where Ben’s office and our extra “living room” are. It’s a really cozy space, and because we’ve never had an upstairs before, it’s pretty fun!

I am really hopeful we have a productive weekend, and I can’t wait to share more progress!
