At times, even the best of us long for a getaway; a chance to clear our minds and an opportunity to experience something new. That is exactly what dawned on me earlier last week: I really needed to leave Seattle, even if just for the weekend. I’m a rather spontaneous person. I treasure unplanned moments dearly and act on impulse when my heart leads me to do so. So on Sunday evening, after a phone call or two to one of my favorite people, Mayowa, I was all set to visit her and explore Minneapolis, Minnesota. By lunch time on Friday, I was at the Seattle Tacoma International Airport not anticipating that this weekend would be exactly what I needed — and more. A break, fresh air, sisterhood, conversations until 6am, and good laughs. Not to mention excellent food. It is such blessing to have friends that love God, love life, believe in you, and that you can depend on to cheer you up, even if it means flying across the country.
Here are some photos from our weekend and if you’re ever in Minneapolis and live for brunch like myself, I highly recommend visiting The Lowry & The Union Rooftop.
