A quick retrospect of Alex and Austin’s wedding.
GEM LAKE — The estate at the end of a cobblestone gutter-lined drive in Gem Lake still appears much like it did 70 years ago thanks to the preservation efforts of Tony Scornavacco and Mike Garrett.
My long weekend in Minneapolis was one of the best I have ever had, hands down. The Mall of America is now crossed off my bucket list, as is the Minnesota State Fair. Alex and Austin’s wedding was more fun than should be allowed, and the mariachi band was the vanilla icing on the chocolate-raspberry cupcakes. Dancing at Gay 90’s completed the night’s festivities. Our last day, we were invited to an impromptu brunch at Lush and then to this lovely house above. Worsted Skeynes, as it is called, is an exquisite Edwin Ludlie-built English manor complete with art deco 1931 pool and outlaying buildings. It is a dream built into reality, and what added to its charm was the intelligent and invigorating company we had.
I don’t have enough thumbs to give thumbs up to Minnesota. Congratulations, my lovely Alex and Austin. Haaaaayyyyyyy.
First stop in Minneapolis: the Mall of America.
The Minnesota State Fair was awesome. Waiting for our bucket of cookies, though, it started to pour! So I danced in the rain and we gave out cookies to everyone waiting under the eaves with us.
Thoughts: everything was on a stick. Everything. The fried cheese curds were delicious. The baby pigs made my ovaries explode they were so frickin cute. Buckets of cookies make friends. And last, the west end shopping had great jewelry.
