02.11.13 urban wildland

I have been known to sing the praises of my fair city. And this is why: just look at that picture – isn’t she beautiful?

But she’s not just another pretty face.

Not far from this picturesque stand of trees there are rivers you can kayak, a giant waterfall and several lakes and bike trails as well as brew pubs, bakeries, arts galore, an awesome place for gelato, and an international airport.

What I love about where I live is that my kids can cross paths with wild turkeys on the way to the museum or listen to street musicians not far from the creek where they scoop minnows. It’s a good balance that, to me, feels like having my cake and eating it too.

Plus, when it snows, she looks just like an angel.
