Do you enjoy the rain? I revel in it.

Fortunately, we have a lovely, lovely cousin/friend who is checking on the kitties, so they’re not too lonely.

I also love watching the rain come in from the suburbs. Our view showcases the storms beautifully!

I decided to get in a quick morning run before the thunderstorms hit, and we ran right into one! I went from this relaxed feeling:

Mr. F and I got back to the apartment completely soaked but loving it. This is what it looks like outside right now.

Welcoming the long weekend!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! In Chicago, it’s suppose to rain and thunderstorm over the weekend,  but I don’t mind!

I’m excited to sleep in and attend a fun BBQ on Sunday. We’re going to bring Navy beans, Red and White wine to be festive. I think we should bring a fun Washington wine like, Mark Ryan‘s Vincent!

Hopefully, Monday’s weather will have more….

What are you doing for the long weekend?
