This place became my home in a way I never thought it would. After four years of living in Minnesota, I fell in love with its trails, its forests, its waterfalls, its lakes, and most of all, its people. I formed bonds of friendship that will last me a lifetime. I spent a lot of time exploring this place, but I'm still dying to do more. Unfortunately, I had to say goodbye to the places, activities, and people that I came to adore. Whether I never see it again (not happening!), visit every once in a while (more likely), or even move back one day (who knows!), Minnesota will always hold a piece of my heart, and it will forever be a place I call home.
