Aurora Style: Hi, Rain!

Aurora loves to be outside in the rain, so VA's hurricane weather was just fine by her.  Q and I took her outside to play (pre-65 mph winds, mind you), all dolled up in her rain gear. She likes to say, "Hi, Rain!" when she feels it on her hands, which I think it about the cutest thing ever, wouldn't you agree?

Hi, Rain!

We made the most of the natural disasters...like we do of every trying circumstance.  We're always "making it work."  I hope that resilience is a quality that we pass down to Aurora, as well as joy despite circumstances. We were healthy, happy and dry (except for that half an hour in the driveway).  Our house did not flood. No trees fell.  We cleaned out our gutters just in time.  We counted our blessings.  At the end of it all, I didn't want the weekend to end...


It's Small Style Day over on Mama Loves Papa, so we're linking up too!

Enjoy the day,
Amanda

Aurora is so sweet and beautiful! I love her boots! And, the "hi rain"? Cuteness overload! :)

You two are so inspiring- I love how you work through and make the most of every circumstance. I know you will definitely pass that down to Aurora.

Nothing beats some splashing fun - especially in pink gumboots!
