Why We Love the Rain

April 3rd, 2013 · No Comments

It’s officially time to start expecting the rain to fall. Spring is here, but not without the necessary drops of water that quench the thirst of the soil. Each tiny drop helps to bring the beauty of spring to life—and be honest—when the scorching summer days hit, you kind of miss the rain…just a little. Living in the Pacific Northwest, we get our fair share (some would say MORE than our fair share) of rain. It’s okay, though. We’ve learned to love the rain. Here are some of the reasons we should all love the rain!

It makes being inside feel cozy

If you got your heart stomped on a sunny day, it just wouldn’t have the same effect.

It keeps your lawn nice and green

Rainy days are a great excuse to spend time together as a family

It brings rainbows—sometimes double rainbows

It’s better for kissing in

The Notebook

It’s better for singing in

It makes for more dramatic shirtless moments

Without April showers, we wouldn’t have May flowers!

Have you ever been inspired by the rain? How about using resin to envelop a picturesque scene inside a rain drop? Or, find a creative way to interpret the scent of a fresh rain shower—maybe some grass green hues sparkling with clear crystal accents. Try playing with slate blues, smoky grays and one bright pop like red or yellow to symbolize getting caught in a downpour with your rubber boots. Don’t get upset when the clouds roll in—use this as a sign to challenge your mind, to delve into your creativity and find a way to capture what’s going on outside.
