Although it is not raining in the pictures, today and yesterday have sure been wet days! The rain has been almost constant, and whereas rain usually depresses people, it makes me actually contemplative and content! For some strange reason I have always loved rain and thunderstorms...
There is something so soothing about the soft pitter-patter sound the rain makes on my roof at night when I am laying in bed, trying to fall asleep. The rain is like a mother's lullaby to me, it rocks me to bed as soon as my eyes close.
A few years ago my little sister and I had the most magical experience with a rain storm. I went outside to just sit and admire the rain when my little sister ended up following me outside. Soon, we were standing in the pouring rain ,dancing together and spinning around gaily. It was such a fenomenal experience... I felt like I was flying and untouchable, unstoppable. It is one of my favorite memories of with me sister. The funny part is that when my dad found out we were dancing in the freezing cold rain, drenched to the bone he was so angry. To tell you the truth, however, it was worth it.

Even when I was a small girl I remember loving the rain. I had a best friend named Traci, and whenever it rained and I was at her house we played out in the rain. We would put on our vibrantly colored swim suits and splash in puddles, run around the her house, and swing as high as we could on the swing set while we sang "Rain, Rain, Go Away." The last thing we really wanted though was for the rain to go away.
It's funny that in the first picture I am holding an umbrella because never in my life have I used one. I'd rather my hair get frizzy than hold one of those darn things. They don't help at all, but I think they are rather even more of a nuissance! Whomever created umbrellas should have made it so that didn't fold up in the wind lol.
Recently I have been noticing changes in myself. Not large ones, but small ones. It's exciting to think that everyday I learn something new about myself that helps shape me to who I am going to be in the future! I like this feeling alot. :)
