linden hills

today we enjoyed a quiet morning at one of minneapolis’ cutest spots: linden hills! first we grabbed coffee and pastries at rose street patisserie and got some work done (we’ve also concluded that senior slides are not a real thing). then we set off to walk through some of the small boutiques around the area, including honeyshine and the best children’s book store, wild rumpus.

here’s some pictures from our rainy fall morning:

wild rumpus has chickens, cats, and birds just hanging out in random parts of the store. we used to come here all the time when we were little, it is truly a great place.

backpacks- the easiest kind of bag

backpacks are definitely on the rise this year and we could not be happier! we love them because they are much less of a hassle then a purse (forget heavy purses that occupy your whole arm!). we have found some of our favorite backpacks that are great for a long day out, school, work, traveling, exploring, or whatever life brings you!
