The beautiful day beckons

Like many a-fickle person, I'm loath to but find myself wanting to blame the dismal weather for my dampened (pun intended) spirits. These photos were taken literally within a span of roughly five minutes by dear Pink because that was really all the time we had. And here's where I let out a big sigh. Ah, back in the day when it was actually too hot for me to foolishly wear tights, long sleeves and heavy boots. Back when it wasn't a week-long rainy fest of gray. I feel like I'm living in London during the 1800s. I expect an old crone to come hobbling out and whisk me away on some Dickensian adventure. If only.

(It's been raining all this week, if that wasn't already clear)

And today I just came back from a day-long trip in the Windy City, which was more of a Windy-and-Steadily-Raining-all-day-City today. But y'know what? It's all good in this tri-state area neighborhood.

YAYYY. There's nothing better than a sunny day after a billion days of rain. ITS THE BEST. Like the saying goes, "you never know what you've got 'till it's gone" or whatever. I'm so much more appreciative of sunny days now! YIPPEE.

And you look amazing. I LOVE your boots. They are so rockstar.

its SO easy for the weather to get you down! while i was reading this post actually, t started to rain. at my job, we're all kinda down bc of the weather right now, but we cure it by having themed days where we all dress in a certain way... hippie day, stripes, and lots of other stuff like that! super fun. try that!
