beauty of a rainy day

Today, I'd like to share a something slightly different: traveling. More specifically the beauty of a rainy day.
A few years ago, I was lucky enough to get to visit Ireland and Wales for a short time and while I'm from Nashville, TN, and so quite used to rain, I was struck with the beauty of a rainy day there. Maybe it is one of those things that "the grass is always greener..." but it was so beautiful there that I didn't mind the constant rain & dark skies. In fact, I can't think of a more beautiful or peaceful thing then the rain of Ireland and Wales.
The colors were so thick; the smell so inviting. I often find myself wishing on rainy days here, that I was back there. Even the squishing of my boots in the mud and the way my hair curled so mightily that I couldn't even get a comb through it. I miss it all & cannot wait to go back. But what about you, dearlings? Have you ever fallen in love with the rain? Or a place? I hope you have a wonderful day, xo!

  1. I know what you mean. I'm from Wales and there's nothing quite like taking a drive to the country side when it rains. It's so peaceful but then again I'm a bit biased and love it no matter what the weather! I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to Wales :)

  2. I love this colour scheme of these photo. Beautiful rainy day truly. :-)

  3. I love listening to the sound of heavy rain ^_^ But, being from the north of England, we do get rather a lot of it!
