To a lot of people, they first (and only) thing that comes to mind when it comes to Minnesota is COLD and it all fairness that is exactly what I thought of it too. But then life moved us here and after my first summer here my mind is completely blown.

From the cheese curds, to the lakes and everything in between now I realize why people stay here just because of the summer. It is hard to put it into words, you truly have to live it to understand it. One thing that captivated me from the beginning about this place was that regardless of the weather, life does not stop.

Back in January with miles and miles of snow covering the state; I remember driving with my friend around the city and seeing people in 20F weather out and about in parks. Not surprisingly, when summer came around that happened but almost 24/7.

One of my favorite memories from the summer was the Minnesota State fair. I got to try one of Minnesota’s staple foods: Cheese curds! For those of you who have never heard of them, they are deep fried cheese deliciousness. It’s not like cheese sticks because they are milk curds that solidify and are deep fried. It is a very unique taste! Besides all the amazing food I got to try I think specifically this one was from the ones that stood out to me, and the bonus is that you can find them all year round!

By the way, since there is a day to celebrate everything well October 15th is National Cheese Curd day and I for one plan to celebrate it by of course indulging in them at one of my fave burger joint in Minneapolis called Culvers.

Minnesota has been good to us and I am very much ready for fall and actually looking forward to winter now more than ever since my hubby is here and we have a lot of things to experience together!
