Winter Weekends // Chisholm and McCarthy Beach State Park

I just wanted to get out of the city. I was feeling the winter blues, back busy at work after a long and fulfilling holiday, and I was ready for another adventure. Then the coolest Airbnb popped up on my search, and I didn't think twice.  These are the winter weekends I love writing about, [...]

So far, the weather has been unpredictable (as always), the Twins have been awful and the beer has exceeded expectations. Breweries, breweries, breweries. Hope you like craft beer, because we [...]
