Fresh Rain.

2015-11-01 23.58.39November brought a heavy rain to the Bay Area (Guns N Roses would be proud). It was so heavy that it actually woke me up from a deep sleep. My favorite thing is to stay under my comforter and listen to the rain hit the roof. It let up after I got up for the day so I was able to see remaining rain drops coming off of our cafe lights and trees in the backyard.

I can’t wait for more rain, it rinses all of the stress away. Do you love the rain too?

After Every Good Rain, Comes the Sun

IMG_6541While Chelsea is in Paris, I’ve taken it upon myself to do whatever the hell I want on here.  Which really only means one thing.  Adding many more photos :).  I woke up Christmas Eve morning to a sharp light that would catch every few minutes and sparkle into my bedroom window like a beautiful emerald siren.  This is when I realized the rain had stopped and I hopped out of bed throwing on some slippers and grabbed my camera.  One of my favorite times of day is the morning and especially a beautiful one after a good week of rain.  Everything was shimmering in the dearly missed sun blanket.

I’m a sucker for good scenery.  I find beauty in a lot of things so armed with my camera, I tend to see a lot of things that add a little more color to my day.  Christmas Eve was a beautiful day that I spent photo adventuring and catching up with close friends and my family.  These beautiful days aren’t expected but definitely a wonderful surprise when they sneak up on you.

These Boots Were Made for Puddles

IMG_6515This holiday season in San Francisco has been a bit more rainy than usual.  We got really bummed out about it for a minute and then realized, wait!  This is actually awesome.  Time to bust out our rain boots that you only really get to wear when it’s raining.  We both are commuters and have a pretty decent walk from public transportation to the office.  When it’s raining, if you don’t wear rain boots you get soaked.  Here are our picks for great rain boots!

Get out there and start puddle stompin’!  There’s nothing more fun than facing a puddle head on and just plowing through.  Especially when you see other people frantically running or carefully scaling large puddles to avoid the water.  We have complete faith in you, you’ve got this!
