Ghost train! 👀 #minneapolis

I'll be speaking at #ignitempls on May 11th about my #MugshotMonday project! I'm super stoked -- and mildly terrified -- to be doing this. Hope to see you there!
.
Ignite format is an evening of 18 talks on different and inspiring topics. Each talk is 5 minutes with 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds. 😬
.
I believe every mug has a story and I hope you never look at a coffee mug the same way again by the end of my talk.
.
Btw, I've been to five of these before (1st time as a speaker!) and they are a blast. Get tickets at ignitempls.com. #minneapolis

Mugshot Monday - “Tremblay’s Sweet Shop” mug with Guatemalan Light Roast by @Peace_Coffee
.
If I had told you I was at @TremblaySweetShop last weekend, I would have thought I had been up north in Hayward, Wisconsin. I’ve been going to that awesome candy store ever since I was a kid.
.
However, last weekend my 9-year-old and I were in Stillwater, MN and I told him we’d find a candy store in town. I totally forgot about the Tremblay’s there so it was a surprise for me when I saw it. And when we walked in, we both had the same nostalgic experience as the store in Hayward.
.
The Stillwater location is a smaller version of the Hayward store, but they still make the fudge, the chocolate truffles, the almond bark, etc right in the store on huge marble slabs. And then they have piles of wrapped candy EVERYWHERE to load into your little wicker basket – you pick the kinds you want and pay for it all by the pound. That’s what the 9YO was after.
.
I picked out one of their ginormous nut rolls. Which is different for me because I always get the almond bark. I should have gotten BOTH is what I lamented later. So good!
.
So, I’m not sure if I’m responsible for Tremblay’s selling these fine coffee mugs now, but I do know about 2 years ago I humbly requested they make a mug.
.
I asked at the Hayward store if they had coffee mugs and a woman working there replied they didn’t but looked at me like she had a lightbulb over her head. She told me it was an awesome idea and even wrote it down. I said I’d love a mug with the illustration from their bags – that guy with the old timey hat stirring the big kettle of fudge. And here it is!
.
Thank you Tremblay’s for making the awesome sweets and for making this lovely mug. And thanks to my mother-in-law Sandy for giving me the mug for Christmas! I have so many good memories from this candy store.

Mugshot Monday - “Purple Star First Avenue” mug by @Deneen_Pottery with Guatemalan Light Roast by @Peace_Coffee
.
This Friday will mark one year since Prince died and I still can’t believe he’s gone.
.
I bought this mug back in September when I first saw it, but decided to wait until today to use it. I’ll be drinking from my Purple Star mug all week as I remember Prince.
.
Lots of people will be doing the same sort of thing, but instead of drinking coffee they might be listening to their Purple Rain record, or going to the Memorial Street Party, or visiting Prince’s star at @FirstAvenue. Everyone will have their own way of remembering.
.
My friend @KHarris1128 put together a great list last week for @CityPages titled “Prince: A complete album guide”. He ranks all 32 Prince albums rated on a scale from ½ star to 4 stars in relation to each other. No easy feat! This sentence from his intro jumped out at me:
.
“As time passes and Prince’s death becomes less of a news story and more of a reality we live with, the music he recorded is what we come back to.”
.
So true. I’ll be sipping coffee from my mug listening to my favorite Prince record, The Black Album (3 stars, btw). RIP Prince. You left this earth too soon.
.
PS: You can still buy your own Purple Star mug on First Ave’s website.
