my favorite things about minnesota summers


ah the beauty of summer nights around a lake. living in minnesota we are so blessed to be surrounded by large masses of water. there are so many trails to go explore, fun walking paths filled with beautiful scenery. it is love. and this type of weather/beauty what makes me fall in love with minnesota again. yes we have crazy winters (especially this year!), but the second summer hits you fall in love. (until winter comes again)

but because i am on my summer sunshine high, i am going to be sharing five things that make me say yay about minnesota summers

1// coffee & gin rummy  by the lake with friends, three things that the kirseboms love
2// the beautiful minnesota lakes, filled with sailboats! 

3// my love, we have spent the last two summers apart ( i was in ny for an internship in 2010, and in 2011 chad worked at a summer camp in iowa) so it is such a treat to finally spend the summer months together again! i feel like we need to make up for lost time 

4//   cute little trolly cars. i haven't gone on one before but i would love to try and get on one this summer, they are so fun! (well at least they look like they are!)**

5// all of the pastels that you wear in the summer. they just scream its nice weather outside! 

what is your favorite part about summer?


  1. pretty photos! it's been rainy here this week so hopefully it'll start feeling more summery soon. i just love a day by the pool more than anything!

  2. Those trolly cars DO look like fun! You've got me all excited for summer now! We just need some nice weather around these parts!
