Life :: I love rainy weather.
Wet, gloomy days -- like today -- are rare here in Los Angeles, but I absolutely adore them. I used to hate rain when I lived in Michigan, but now I've grown to miss it. There's nothing more relaxing than hearing the pitter-patter of drops against my bedroom window. All I want to do today is read, drink coffee and make plans for the future. I've been purposely setting aside time lately to do such things, and I haven't felt this relaxed in awhile. Below, for example, was a recent morning off from work... It felt so nice to crack open a magazine!
In other news, my parents went out last night to celebrate the day they met. They were 18 and 20 then; now, they're 51 and 53! I am so happy for them, and I feel incredibly lucky to have been raised with a wonderful example of a healthy marriage. It's awesome. I haven't seen them since August, and I miss them so much. My mom texted me these awkward photos from their date. Cute, right?
So, it's St. Patrick's Day and I have no plans. I feel like many holidays die out after college. It's so sad! No one has parties anymore, or maybe I'm a big fat loser who isn't invited to parties anymore. Either way, I might go pick up a pint of whiskey and celebrate my heritage. (Kidding. Have you seen these eyebrows? I'm not Irish.)
I'll leave you with this photo that my friend, Edwin, sent me. I think I'm more in love with his pup than he is. I want one...! (All photos in this post are from my non-iPhone unless otherwise noted.)
