ELF PANTS AND SHEL SILVERSTEIN
DISCLAIMER: This post is not about food.
Being born and raised in Santa Barbara, California, I’m fairly used to the usual weather of 73 degrees, no clouds. However, every now and then SB’s pattern has a hiccup which in yesterday’s case, was rain. I LOVE rain. It may just be because it is so scarce where I live (shout out to the drought) or it could reflect my persona in a way, but whatever the reason, I love it. Something about bundling up, listening to the sounds of droplets hitting my roof, and adjusting my eyes to the cool gray and dark blue tones of the sky makes me feel so calm. In a nutshell, rainy days in my house turn into cozy snuggle fests.
I got to enjoy this specific one with one of my best friends, Ruth. After a long day at school, we came back to my house to make tea, bump our rainy day playlists, and curl up with some books. We turned my bed into a sea of blankets and opened up the small window above it to let in the sounds and breeze of the rain. I was observing how comfy Ruth looked and couldn’t help but snap some pictures to share.
