SUNDAY BROUGHT as perfect of a day as we have here in Minnesota. Sunshine. High temps without the humidity. No wind. A day to linger outdoors until the sunlight fades into the dark calm of a perfect summer evening.
Honestly, do days get any better than this?
In Minnesota, we gather these days into our memories, filing them away for the brutal months of winter, of bitter cold temps, snow (dare I mention that word?) and too much darkness.
For now we choose to celebrate the days of summer with family and friends, backyard barbecues and icy beer, laughter and conversation.
Here’s to the arrival of summer and the banishment of winter to some hinterland far, far, far away from Minnesota.
