I remember back in mid-June when I was still wearing mittens and a jacket (no joke), hoping that summer would be gracious enough to last a few extra months this year. My wish was granted, as were the wishes of thousands of other Minnesotans. It is technically fall, but summer weather is still here. Wooo! I hear that the winds of change are brewing, but I will take every last little morsel of pleasantness that comes our way. We have been spending time outside whenever possible, and of course putting our grill to use. Dan and I got creative the other night and whipped up a tasty, crazy burger that blew our socks off. Well. We weren't wearing socks, but if we had been they would have landed in eastern Wisconsin.
