My favorite? Hmmm, well, I love historical museums. LOVE Glensheen Mansion in Duluth, James J. Hill House in St. Paul and the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul.

Once Upon a Time on May Day…

…we used to deliver May Day Baskets and receive them. My mom would buy paper Dixie cups and colored pipe cleaners for  handles and we would fill the small baskets with popcorn and candy (a favorite was M&Ms) and then we’d deliver them to family and friends. You’d knock on the door and run away. They were left anonymously. That was so much fun. I don’t think anyone does that anymore. That’s a shame. A pretty basket – with flowers or candy – can brighten someone’s day and let them know they’re thought of. May Day was a couple days ago. I wish I would’ve delivered May Baskets. Maybe I will next year. I did find some pretty photos of baskets. Aren’t they beautiful? They’d brighten my day!!!

Other stuff I do…

In addition to being a writer and editor, I’m an historian (just completed my certificate in historic preservation). Check out the fantastic article done by Melissa Vander Plas of the Bluff Country Newspaper Group. It’s about an oral history project I started in my hometown.
