Coffee Shops & Bookstores | Uptown with Winona Grey

Wednesday, November 6, 2013

I can count the number of friends I have in Minneapolis on one hand, so I was really excited to both work and just hang out with Winona, who is the fabulous photographer behind Winona Grey Photography and a neighbor of mine! We crossed paths at our apartment building's Oktoberfest community event and immediately started planning to get together for a photo shoot/blog collaboration.

We met on a chilly afternoon last week, hopped on a bus and hung around Uptown, which is one of my favorite Minneapolis neighborhoods and also where Winona used to live. She had the day planned out, and when we stopped immediately for coffee I knew we were going to be fast friends. She's also super talented, as I'm sure you'll see.

    I agree, Uptown is one of the best places to hang out around these parts.
    How do you feel about the first snow of the year here?!

    1. Oh thank you so much! So far I'm loving it--we barely get anything in Virginia so snow will probably be exciting to me for a while ;)
