This city is amazing. I recently came back to Sioux Falls after 15 years away, and every day I hear of more and more incredible new projects and businesses that are drastically improving the quality of life of all of us Sioux-ites (What should we call ourselves? Has a word been coined yet?)

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Chef Ellen and was instantly fascinated by the personal chef business she has created. I love that there's a way to have meals perfectly tailored to your preferences and dietary needs, right at home.

Sioux Falls Culture

Sioux Falls Culture

In coming back to Sioux Falls after spending the last 15 years in Louisiana and Minneapolis, I was worried that I was sacrificing cultural experiences that had so significantly enriched my life throughout my time away. Louisiana culture is loud, and spicy, and vibrant. The people, the food, the music, the weather….all are spicy and loud and vibrant! And in Minneapolis, the arts scene is on par with cities two or three times its size. There are music festivals, art shows, and theater events for every hour of every day of the week.

Growing up in Sioux Falls, we’d go see a play downtown once or twice a year. We’d catch a music concert at the Sioux Empire Fair every year, and that was about it. So, in coming back to Sioux Falls, I had kind of accepted the fact that I would be limited in the cultural events and places that I’d be able to experience.

But, I was so wrong.
