Out with the old, in with the new!

In this day and age, a regular Target just won't do. The one near my house, which the locals affectionately refer to as Targhetto, is soon to be leveled so it can become the parking lot for the new and improved Super Targhetto! In this photo, Target is on the right and Super Target is on the left. In 3 months, Target will be gone and Super Target will be open. Is it just me or does this seem an excessive waste????

Whole Foods

Once I got over being intimidated by this grocery store, I found that they carried some amazing seafood, sausages, cheeses and they have one hell of a salad bar, which is hard to find around these parts. I'm not an organic kind of girl. Why pay twice as much for apples with worm holes? I'll take the chemicals thankyouverymuch. They haven't killed me yet so I think I'll keep on rollin' the dice! But there are some wonderful things you can only find at Whole Foods. Plus, I love the wonderful mural on the side of the building.

Ancient alleys

The Cathedral Hill area hosts some of St. Paul's oldest and most spectacular homes. Behind the scenes of those majestic mansions are some enchanting carriage houses and cobblestone alley ways. Years of use and weather have left their unique imprint on these alley ways and I think they are almost as fabulous as the homes themselves.

One of my favorite homes on Summit, this huge white house reminds me of a plantation home and there is a lovely little park and fountain right next door.

Porch Bandits Strike Again!

I had to stop and photograph this house because it looks like someone snuck in overnight and swiped their porch. A home like this should have a porch. A big one, one that wraps around 3 sides and beckons to friends and neighbors. Don't you think?
