Living in Minnesota has it’s ridiculous downfalls; one of the greatest ones being snow. Last year during the month of May, we experienced snowfalls up until the beginning of June. Nothing truly ruins your day like waking up expecting green grass and 60 degree weather and actually finding two feet of fresh snow. This year, however, has had a fairly good start. During this past month, we’ve had sunny, warm days up in the 70s. The grass is already green, the trees are showing leaves, and we’ve already had rain storms. Today in particular is a beautiful, rainy day. The only appropriate course of action for a day like today is to curl up with a good book and a large cup of tea.
