Purple Love

We gave it our best shot, but there's just no beating the gravitational pull that keeps yanking us back to Purple Pride and another season as MN Vikings fans. We're definitely New Yorkers but switching our loyalties from the Vikings to Giants just never felt quite right. So here we are, as purple as it gets.

So, Leni made it through airport security and landed in MN for her first of what are sure to be many MN world tours. Ash tried to give her all of his priceless pointers during the flight, like always ask the ones named grandma and papa for treats and remember to stay on the quiet side after 8PM so mom and dad will just forget that it's your bedtime and you'll get to stay up till all hours playing with your cousins. She didn't seem too terribly receptive to his gems of wisdom but I'm sure that will change quickly in the years to come. Ash pretty much has MN wrapped around his finger at this point...

No matter how many treks we make to MN it never ceases to amaze me how genuinely wonderful it is to have family in the room next door or right across the street or on their way over for a coffee and a quick visit. New York may be our home but we sure are suckers for the purple love.
