Sunday Morning Rain

There's something about rain on a Sunday morning that gives me permission to enjoy a lazy day. For me, Sunday is usually the prep-day for the week. It's the day that I run around, frantically trying to be sure I'm ready for Monday. Do we have enough groceries? Do the dogs have enough food? What are the kids wearing tomorrow? Did we finish the bills to mail them off on Monday? While usually being hectic, the rain somehow gives me a sense of calmness. Rainy, overcast days also are huge inspiration days for me. For some reason, I LOVE being in my studio on a rainy day more than any other. I think it's because I feel cozy and content being inside knowing that outside it's wet and windy.
I know today will be a solid creating day. My girls will play along side of me with their play doh, toys and crayons. We'll act silly, dance, goof off, be together, and just be creative. I am sure there's going to be some cupcake making going on too!!
Enjoy your Sunday, whether it be rainy or the perfect Spring day!
Here's a bit of sunshine on a rainy day. This is my 4 year old trying to jump rope for the very 1st time.

Hope your day was as good as you anticipated, friend! I slept a lot, walked some, and am planning what to fix for dinner. No scrapping, yet, at least...but I might get there. :)

Very cute Gabz. I love your perspective as usual and I couldn't agree more. Well, on a rainy day, I do actually love to read too!
