Yep. That's me wearing an Alpaca wool sweater in the middle of July. I had packed so many other cute outfits for our trip to Naples Maine, but unfortunately Mother Nature was not cooperating. It was a balmy 50 degrees and rainy the entire time we were there.
But it wasn't really about the weather, it was about being together as a family. We were there visiting my Aunt and Uncle and cousins who we don't see often enough, and we weren't going to let a little rain stop us. So, Despite the weather, we were still able to go out on their boat, my husband got a little fishing in, and I got a little retail therapy in with with the girls (hence, the lobstah sweatah). There was no way I was leaving it in the store! That baby was coming home with me! Oops! Got off track. It's not about the sweater! It's not about the sweater! It's about family right? I think I love this sweater as much as I love my family. Is that possible? Sorry not sorry!
All kidding aside, we really did have a lovely time, and to tell you the truth, I am kind of happy that it rained the entire time because it forced us all to be inside together where we spent hours catching up, laughing, relaxing, and making fun memories.
I read somewhere that "Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, but it's about learning to dance in the midst of the rain" and that the sun doesn't always have to be out to be thankful for what I have.
I am so thankful for the awesome family God has given me.
What are you thankful for?
Have a great weekend!
