I try to never leave Minnesota in July because it’s only 31 days of the year and I can’t stand to miss even one of them. July is warm, sometimes unbearably so to others, but never to me, I only ever put the air conditioning on for the dog. July is sticky and buggy yet so green (especially this year thanks to all the rain in June) and so beautiful it is almost impossible to come up with a month that even comes close.
Not the aforementioned June, which is oftentimes too cold and too rainy. And certainly not August when the days are already getting noticeably shorter and the leaves starting to change color. July is the reason I live in Minnesota, that and my job, and my house, and my family.
