Across the Lake

The United States- A life by the water

My Minnesotan life style is a simple one. I surround myself with the outdoors when weather permits, as well as dogs. I find myself relaxed and please around water and sunshine. The US is my home, and every where I go is generally surrounded by the same culture.

Italy- Ancient Architecture

In the few times I have been granted the opportunity to visit other countries, I am surrounded by new culture and language. I am a visitor in the space, and I find myself amazed with all of the differences. The color and age of buildings and art, the sights I see and the food I eat. Every country is very separate from my America.
