Montana Love

1 year ago today I was in Montana to celebrate my grandpa’s 80th birthday. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to hang out in Mont as much as I do. You know the things they say about Minnesota? Like crazy weather changes and Minnesota nice? Well Montana is on a different level when it comes to those things. One day it’ll be -35° and the next day it’ll be 60°. The people are SO NICE. Come from the city, hang for an hour, you’ll see what I mean.
My dad was there this past weekend and it inspired me to share some of my favorite pics in this fancy collage that I just learned how to make.

My grandpa bought 500 fish and put them in this pond. He then named it, "Lake Emzie." I pride myself in having a "lake" named after me.

Another capture of Lake Emzie. We tried to go fishing but I killed the first fish I caught so my grandpa put a stop to that.

When I was little, my grandpa gave me this "house." I used to have dreams of running away from home to live here.

Circle, MT - My friend LIbby and I took these pictures jokingly on the way to my grandpa's house a few summers ago. This picture actually ended up being the cover art for the band Cosmonot's newest single.
