Rainy Daze

08 August 2011

It has been rainy and gloomy in Philly lately, and I can honestly say that I do not
mind one bit! There is something soothing about rain in the evening and I just love
cozying up to a good movie with some good people. Of course I could do without the
humidity that it brings to the city, but lucky enough when these photos were taken
it was a little bit cooler, allowing me to wear a hat! I simply cannot wear hats when
it is too hot outside. Also, I pulled out these floral shorts I have been meaning to
share with you all. I really am a sucker for floral shorts of any kind... I am sure you
have noticed!

Anyways, I am off to get breakfast with my dear Norwegian friend who is going
back to Norway today! Going to eat at a traditional American diner to send her
off. Pancakes are calling my name!
