Lake Calhoun Living

by Molly Mahar

Here we are again. It’s Fall. The leaves are falling off the trees and there’s snow in the forecast. After a long Spring & Summer of silence on my blog, I am back.

The past year in a nutshell: I got my first “big girl job” (without ‘intern’ in the title), moved out of my parents house and into an amazing apartment in Uptown, I turned 24, and to top it off, my beautiful and only sister had another perfect baby girl. Parties.. weddings.. cabin trips.. the beach.. impromptu sailing rides.. the list goes on.

This was the best summer of my life, and I have never been happier. Summer in Uptown has been amazing, but I’m sure the Fall and Winter seasons in the city will be just as magical.

Here’s a glimpse of Lake Calhoun Living in the Summer:

The Minneapolis Riverfront: Part Two

by Molly Mahar

The St. Anthony Main trails on the Minneapolis riverfront are jam packed with photo opportunities. Besides all of the beautiful landmarks that St. Anthony offers (which you can see in my previous blog post), I found so many interesting and different wildflowers to photograph. As promised, here they are! :)

The Minneapolis Riverfront: Part One

by Molly Mahar

St. Anthony Main is the place to be on the Minneapolis riverfront if you enjoy acres of trails, beautiful city and water views, trendy restaurants, and breathe-taking Minneapolis landmarks such as the Stone Arch Bridge and St. Anthony Falls! As you may know, I am a fan of free entertainment, which St. Anthony Main provides with all of its trails and things to see. Although I enjoy the free aspects of the area, I am not opposed to sitting down at Vic’s or Tugg’s Tavern for a beer and some amazing food! :) We had a drink and ate cheese curds (my weakness) at Tugg’s before walking around on the scenic paths.

I have only recently started investigating great places in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, as I live in the suburbs, but have truly enjoyed all they have to offer! It definitely keeps life interesting & I get some great shots, too. Here are some photos I took of a variety of things we saw at St. Anthony Main. Check back for my next blog post “The Minneapolis Riverfront: Part Two,” which will showcase all of the beautiful wildflowers I found along the way.. coming soon!

If you are in the Minneapolis area, you NEED to explore the downtown scenes, especially the riverfront at St. Anthony. Check out http://stanthonymain.com/ for information!
