It’s not you, it’s me. After an unforgettable 11 months as your local newspaper reporter at the Perham Focus, I’m reluctantly moving back to Minneapolis.

I truly have fallen in love with Perham, but the adjustment to living in a rural area has been harder than I imagined, so it’s time to say goodbye.

When I started last year, I knew nothing about what made Perham so unique. Today, I can honestly say it’s one of the most special places anywhere.

The kindness and overall charitable attitude that flourishes here will not be lost on me.

I want to thank everyone who opened up their hearts and trusted me with their stories. I couldn’t have done it without your openness and willingness to share your perspective with me.
