Lets talk about rain.
I happen to really like rainy days. Like really. Why? Because rain sure can be a rarity in drought-plagued Austin, TX. Something about this rare event makes me cherish these days. There is something cleansing about rain too. I love to go on long runs in the rain. Especially when its sticky hot and the sky finally breaks to give the heavy clouds a release. When I can’t tell if it’s sweat or rain running down my face. The sounds of the rain falling and my feet hitting the pavement drone out even my ever racing mind. That is one thing I love about rainy days.
Other things I love about rainy days? Eating full plates of spaghetti that your friends bring to your house just because they want to share a meal with you.
Another thing? Discovering this song on Pandora. It’s quite catchy and soothing. Perfect for a rainy day.
Best thing about a rainy day? Getting great news! The Austin Food Blogger Alliance is publishing a cookbook!
And yours truly is going to be in it! How awesome is that? I’m SO excited.
