It has been quite a while since my last post but I am happy to report that Minnesota is starting to feel more and more like home.  We have discovered a ton of things to do in the area and are really enjoying being in a bigger city.  My job at Spyder Trap is going very well and I am really enjoying the new challenges that is has presented.  Even in just the last few months I have grown as a developer, project manager and as a person which I believe are things we should always strive for.  NEVER STOP LEARNING/GROWING. Many more posts to come including The World In Links tomorrow, sorry for the delay.

The Next Chapter

If you have noticed a bit of a decrease in my posts lately it is because we just finished moving half way across the country. As many of you know I accepted a position with Spyder Trap (a marketing firm in Minneapolis) back in April and I have been working remotely for them since May 1st. I am both excited and honored to be a part of such a wonderful, driven and highly successful team. Spyder Trap not only has some amazing clients and projects but is also one of the top 100 best companies to work for in Minnesota.

While the move came with its share of challenges and surprises we are finally getting settled and are enjoying things out here in the midwest. I will be back on a more normalized posting schedule starting in September but until then things will be pretty hit or miss while we continue to get back into our routines. Until then, here are a few highlights from our time in Minnesota thus far.

We are always looking for new things to do and would love to get suggestions (particularly for winter activities) from people who are familiar with the Minneapolis/St.Paul area.  Please leave any thoughts/suggestions/opinions in the comments!
