Switzerland and Minnesota, they are the two places I've lived the longest in my life. Growing up in Minnesota my whole life, I had imagined one day because of my interest in missions I would live overseas. It's quite short now with just over a year that I've been here, compared to the around 25 years in the States. I was able to visit Minnesota for a short week and a half in September and my sister gave me some fun reminders of the northern homeland. These coasters on my desk are iconic places in Minneapolis. I snapped this photo the other day with my favorite Swiss mug here, just a fun combination of two places that feel very much like home.
