The moment my skin touches the sun after a long Minnesota Winter, something happens to me. Suddenly, I want to book every campsite I’ve ever been to, drink margaritas, and my eating habits change quite a bit. For those of you who live in a cold weather state, you know what it’s like to have your first weekend of patio weather. It feels like you don’t have to go to work because the sun is out and because it’s grilling season, it doesn’t matter how many times you day drink on the weekend..because…the sun is out, HELLO!?

I feel like I can do anything as long as that pie in the sky is dishing out unlimited rays of Vitamin D. I heart the warmer months in Minnesota, because of all these reasons. People let loose. It doesn’t matter who you are or what your job is, there is s shift in attitude. People let their hair down and everyone is smiling. Yes, the winters get long, but having a break from the sunshine really makes me truly more grateful for glorious spring + summer days.
