The rain has always been a wonderful part of our life together as a couple. The day we were married, it rained and through our honeymoon, too. My final day of classes at college, it rained. It also rained the day we were approved as an adoptive family. =)

There are so many countless beautiful days we’ve shared that didn’t hold any special significance, aside from the awesomeness of that “cuddle up in a blanket, with a mug of hot chocolate, and a book” kind of day.

There have been so many moments in our lives where the rain has soothed us and washed away the roughness of life.

We love to listen to the rain drops drumming on the windowsill and breathe in the smell of the earth. There is a peace in it. A renewal and refreshment.

I know that this post is a little sentimental and dreamy, but it’s raining today. It’s just what rainy days do to me. =)

And here’s a quote to share, just because:


Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with
silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
-Langston Hughes

    I love the quote…it’s been on the header for my blog for over a year now. And, in the bloggyworld, I go by “Rain” because I love rain!

    Look forward to following you on your adoption journey!
