|My Juliana on her wedding day|
Our family has always enjoyed a good rain. We like to sit on the porch and enjoy coziness of a soft summer rain. When it gets too hard or blowy or if there is lightening, I am inside in a flash. Bo and the kids like to sit out there as long as they can.
Last night we enjoyed a comfort food dinner of meatloaf, mashed potatoes and peas with pearl onions. It was the perfect meal for a dreary, rainy day. Some foods feel like a hug. Bo sent me a message that we needed comfort food and the vote was for meatloaf with the fixings. My kids always got so excited when I made meat loaf which really wasn't that often (maybe that's why).
Yesterday was an inside day finished off with coffee on the front porch rocking in the chairs. I say even with the rain, it was a good day in our home. I am so thankful for these moments and days of being together. From playing dinosaurs with Henry to making a meal for my family, each moment building memories and strength that will take us to the next.
