Rain Boots & Rainy Days

So, I know the saying goes “April showers brings May flowers”, but for some reason the distant hope of a pretty flower in May, isn’t enough for me to appreciate the rain in April.

Recently, here in central VA, it has felt more like what I imagine Seattle to be like. The problem is not the rain in and of itself, since I’m sure we really need it, it’s more about how it drastically affects my mood! Can anyone relate? When it’s dreary and gloomy outside, I feel dreary and gloomy inside! One week in particular it rained for 4 days in a row; it was at this point that I decided that I needed to come up with an anti-bad-mood-because-it-rained-for- 4-days-straight- solution!!!

I began to try to look on the bright side. Determined that if only I could change my perspective about the rain, I could somehow alter the experience into something I could enjoy and look forward to. It was then that it hit me- RAIN BOOTS!

My thought was if I bought myself some very cute rain boots, I would have something to get excited about the next time I saw dark clouds approaching! And honestly, it worked!! I found some adorable boots at; they have not only been the ideal fun accessory to add to my wardrobe, but also the perfect solution for my rainy day blues!

Perhaps you can relate? How about looking for the rain boots in a situation that gets you down?
