Around September of last year, I packed up and moved from the Twin Cities to Duluth and it has been an amazing ride so far!

I had been to Duluth a bunch growing up and even have some family here. I hadn't been here for awhile prior to moving so I wasn't sure what to expect. I knew it was beautiful and unique but I have been blown away by all that the city and its people have to offer.

It was hard - but I narrowed down my very favorite things about Duluth (and the rest of the Northland) so far.

By the way, I still have quite the bucket list. I have a lot of places to visit in 2018!

    The Cold

    Okay, so it is a little bit too cold right now for my taste but after living in Arizona a few years back, I swore I would never complain about it again. (Once it was so hot there my shoes melted on my feet.) Who doesn't love snuggling up in a bunch of blankets and drinking hot chocolate when it is cold? It also makes the holiday feel last a little bit longer too.

    The Coffee

    This sounds trivial but I absolutely LOVE coffee. When I lived in Wyoming, the options were limited. Now, I have Dunkin' Donuts and Caribou Coffee and that's just by the station. There are a lot of great local coffee shops too. My coffee-loving soul is happy.

    The Haunted Ship

    I am a Halloween lover. It is my favorite holiday and one of my favorite things in the world. I kept hearing about The Haunted Ship whenever I would mention that I was moving to Duluth. I made it a point to go one of my first weekends here. (My mom is still mad that I dragged her there!) It was so cool and unlike any other haunted attraction I've been too and trust me, I've been to many. I love all the other ships too whether they are haunted or not.

    The Job

    Of course, my favorite thing about Duluth is getting to work at B105! I have always dreamed of getting to talk about country music for a living and the fact that now I get to seems like the best thing in the world. I love the people I work with and all of you that I get to interact with daily!
