Laugh Despite the Rain


We've been getting our fair share of rainy days this season, which is technically GREAT considering the fact that we've been in a record break drought for XX amount of years. However on the practical side of things, torrential rain can be a headache, especially when you have to take account factors such as extreme traffic congestion (think sitting in your car 2-3 ours to travel less than 20 miles), mudslides, flooding, and the like... If I don't have to leave my house, I find the rain to be enjoyable, it has such a soothing effect that cannot be duplicated. 

Any who, I decided to get a few shots in of this look, and wouldn't you know it- it started to sprinkle - lightly... There was a damp chill in the air, I simply refused to take my coat off, LOL!
That instance gave me the chance to reflect on how all too often in our lives we have to learn to laugh through the 'rain', even through 'storms'

Keeping on laughing Babes, don't let a little 'rain' kill your flame 😉

Until next time,
XO

  2. You did socks with heels and it's ADORABLE! That's something I've always wanted to do but just can't find the exact, perfect pieces to do it. I probably just need to go for it, right? Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday!
