A Little Duluth and A Little of Nothing Much

I had a photo shoot at the College of St. Scholastica so we got to stay the night at the Radisson in downtown Duluth. Of course we went swimming. This was the best pool yet. The temperature in the room matched the water temp.

It looked nothing like the place I worked at.  We stocked up on a few good deals. They had Organic Valley butter for way cheaper than what we pay for other butter at the co-op. We've also started a love affair with Oaxaca cheese and decided it was a good idea to get some of the best tortillas in town, La Perla . We used some of the tortillas right away to accompany our leftover tacos el pastor. Since we didn't get to go apple picking with Emma when we we
