The Tragic Optimist

life in late spring

Spring in MN isn’t so much it’s own season as it is the weather jumping back and forth between winter and summer.  One day the high is in the 40s, the next day it hits 80.  Still, it’s beautiful, and a nice change to be able to go outside most days without a jacket.
