Actually, that’s a lie. It doesn’t rain much here in sunny SoCal. But when it does rain, I do love it! In the nearly two years we’ve lived here, I’ve only heard thunder and seen lightening a single time. I don’t miss most midwest weather, but I do miss the occasional thunder storm. Is there quite anything like falling asleep in your cozy bed, wrapped in blankets, to the sound of rain falling on your windows? I think not!
I have been thinking about rain (and clouds) lately because I have been seeing them pop up all over the place! I’ve spotted the motif on everything from graphics to jewelry to my favorite, mobiles (though it was almost a four-way tie between the mobiles, cookies, marshmallows, and straw decorations)! I adore them in any shape and size and in any color too, though I’m particularly fond of the white clouds and colorful raindrops.
Here is a little roundup of cloud + raindrop spottings!

Aren’t they just lovely? Though rain and clouds often have negative connotations (i.e. “Don’t rain on my parade!”), these just make me happy.
Where else have you seen clouds and (or) raindrops popping up?
