Many of my current readers may not have seen that post from a year ago, or (like me!) you may have forgotten about it if you had.
The information I shared in that post from other websites was really helpful - and still pertinent. So today, I'm reminding you of it all again - and providing
one additional “fabulous find” from this week.

Here are the links, with a few of my current thoughts for each:

My husband makes amazing burgers (and some day soon I will share his secret for success on this blog) - but ever since my family had our first In-N-Out Burgers, we sometimes crave them.

#6. Proof That Montana Weather is Insane by Monica Miller
If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will know that I often mention Montana weather. In fact, last Friday I wrote about it, and this week I posted several Instagram photos with the hashtag #likeJuneinJuly.
While our month of June was unseasonably hot and dry, this past week we have had cooler temperatures and much more rain than usual in July. But with the severe potential of forest fires if it had stayed so dry, I don't think any one's complaining. As this article points out - things could be even more extreme!
What is the most extreme fluctuation of weather that you have experienced in a day?
