It finally rained!! Not just for a few minutes, either! For days and days! If you’re not aware, Southern California’s been in the middle of very severe drought pretty much since I moved here. We’ve been begging, praying, dancing and hoping for rain for months and months!
I missed the rain. Although I do have to combat gloomy days with natural remedies because I suffer from a severe and very real case of SAD (a post on this soon to come!), I adore the rain. It means new life, new adventure, and that beautiful, calming sound that rocked me to sleep oh-so-many nights that I lived in New York. Rain is refreshing, cooling and renewing. It’s awakening.
I love how green it makes everything around here. There are so many wonderful little lush, peppermint coloured spots where I am used to brown, sandy landscapes. Raelie loves it too! You know I’m a travel junkie, and the rain gives us both a great space to escape to gorgeous free spaces that are normally crowded. Rainy days are when people around here stay in: but not us! We love this opportunity to explore the diverse and wonderful parks, trails and beaches along the Pacific coast.
We took this opportunity to shoot for I AM U Collective, Free Endearment as well as Synergy, Serei Clothing + some of my favorite companies for accessories + shoes. I’ve been carrying my Diana Dreamer with me everywhere, capturing my experiences on my favorite: 120 film! I’ve adored using film since I was a little girl, and I’m not giving it up any time soon. Everything from the little raindrops to the big, swaying palm trees were all a treat to capture this stormy weekend!
