Raindrops on Roses

I have a confession to make: I love the rain. April in Louisiana means one thing: rain. Sticky rain, at that! For the next week, the forecast is rain every day... not the best plan, but I am not all that mad at it. I read an article a few months ago saying that Louisiana had more rainfall a year than Seattle! That is just plain crazy. 

Because it rains so much here-- seriously it goes from sun to rain in the blink of an eye --a closet staple is a good rain jacket. New Orleans was recently named the Capitol of Monogramming! Everything from totes, tumblers, jackets, car decals... you name it, everyone has something monogrammed. Let's be real, having your initials monogrammed on your pencil pouch in school would have been so much cooler than your mom writing your name on the inside tag #amiright? (Please tell me I wasn't the only kid with my name on everything.)

I guess old habits die hard, because I am going to wear this baby everywhere. I will probably keep it in my car for those "just in case" times when it decides to downpour in the middle of a perfectly sunny day.
