A Rainy Day

Print Aid NYC is going strong!  They have lots of new prints from some amazing designers/artists/photographers.  Everyday it’s so exciting for me to see what new prints are coming in.  (All prints are a steal for $30…they are donating 100% to Sandy relief).  I love this print by Megan Joplin.  This happens to be exactly what New York looks like today.  As I look out my windows, they have a little rain on them and the skies look just like this.

I love thinking about rain – many people say it’s in the rain that we let people know what we’re truly made of.  I have to agree.  It’s in the littlest changes in “weather” in our lives that our true character shines through.  Recently I wasn’t too happy with a dentist who made some mistakes.  In the long run, it isn’t a big deal.  But in the moment, I felt some frustration.  It was a good reminder to let go…to try and handle the situation in the best way possible…to maintain the person that I wanted to be, even on that “rainy day”.  I would love this print hanging on my wall as a reminder to always do that.

And for the ultimate inspiration today…may I convince you to read this article about a couple who is planning a wedding, despite a Stage 4 cancer diagnosis.  This is a lot more than a rainy day for them, but you will be blown away at these two people and the positive lives they are living right now.  It’s truly one of the most beautiful stories I’ve heard in a long while…(thank you, Jane, for sending along.)

May you all have a beautiful day!

Lots of love from rainy Brooklyn,


Note:  The last day to order a Print Aid poster is Dec. 2!  Today is Giving Tuesday…a day dedicated to giving.  Buying a print would be the perfect way to participate in this new world-wide tradition!

Here’s the view out my window.  I have been holding off on a walk, but after writing this post, I think I want to head out there anyway and just experience the rain today.  🙂  xo
