Why I love rainy days...

As I write this, the view from my living room window looks a little something like this; 

But that's okay, because I love the rain. In fact, I have been waiting, what seems like an eternity, for grey skies and torrential rain to return to Britain; and as I sit on my sofa, staring out of the window, I am happy. And here is just a few of the reasons why I love the rain as much as I do;

1. That fresh, crisp smell after the first rainfall. Someone needs to bottle that smell - I'd buy it!

2. The sound of raindrops on the window. I can't be the only one who loves this sound!

3. Duvet days! Rainy days were absolutely made for these.

4. Cooler nights; there's nothing worse than waking up soaked in sweat. Rain brings with it cooler nights; and much lesss sweat!  

5. Beautiful skies. After all, it's only rainy days that lead to gorgeous rainbows. A little something like this, actually;

So I, for one, can't wait for Winter. I need more rainy days, colder nights and duvet days. What about you? Are you a sun or a rain worshipper? Let me know! I'll be back on Sunday with a special post all about my new Moleskine book journal; have a lovely weekend, beauties!

  1. I love rainy days and stormy days!! Ithis post gave me extra reasons to do ;)

    1. So great to meet another rainy, stormy day fan! So many look at me like I'm mad when I tell them I love the rain! Is there anything you love about rain and storms that I didn't include on my list?!

    2. Haha yeah they do consider us kinda weird lol. Yes I do actually..
      I love stormy day because I feel a bit strong !!
      I love the sound of rain because it makes me feel relaxed and lower my anxiety.
      I love rainy & stormy days to set alone and think, write, read a good book! I am an introvert persona so there is that!
      Thank you for this post I would love to come and read it again to remind me of something beautiful : )

    3. I totally agree with you! The sound of rain does make me feel relaxed, and less anxious. And rainy, stormy days were absolutely made for solitude, and a good book. I too, am an introvert persona, so I think I can totally get where you are coming from! I'm looking forward to a storm this weekend actually, hopefully! They are forecasting rain, thunder and lightning. And I have the house to myself, so I'll be enjoying the storm on my couch, with my kitten and a good book with any luck!
      Please feel free to come back and read this post again anytime you like. I'm so glad you liked it, and that I am not the only rain lover out there.
