Last weekend, my dad and I drove down Highway 52 to see a dance performance at my alma matter, Luther College. The piece, Highway 57, was written, choreographed, and directed by my good good good friend, Blake Nellis.
(HIGH FIVE, Blake!)
If you live in the Twin Cities and have never made the drive down to Decorah, I will buy you a cup of coffee and tell you all the reasons to consider it.
For example, The Seed Savers Exchange, just north of Decorah, is a mecca for heirloom seeds and plants. A MECCA. Just look at their catalog! I'm so excited to start growing (and eating) the weird and wonderful varieties of vegetables we picked up during our visit.
