i’m a proud, card carrying pluviophile. always have been. i don’t know if it’s a condition of growing up in the great pacific northwest or if it’s a combination of growing up here and having parents that didn’t restrict activities because of the rain. unless there was lightning strikes, my siblings and i were playing outside. riding bikes in the rain, football, soccer, running-yep all can be done in the rain. gardening, walking to the store, etc. on the flip side, rainy days also equate snuggly blankets, reading for hours on end, taking a nap. And as I got older, I’ve always found rain to be soothing, romantic and reviving as well as the perfect company for those moments when all i want to do is cry.
the romantic in me has always stopped at the sight of love in the rain. a pair holding hands and sharing an umbrella, children laughing and splashing in puddles with abandon, a couple sharing a kiss.
when we last met, each of us flying to a city where we are both anonymous in our every day lives, the weather was unusually warm and dry for the time of year. knowing my penchant for the rain, he surprised me while we were sharing a bath and turned on the shower as well and then he kissed me. and kept kissing me. kissing in the rain.

and so I thought I was the only one.. =)
That is beyond amazing!
it made me cry. in a lovely, thoughtful, way
It makes me teary eyed to think of that too! How sweet! Awww…
And I danced in the rain on my wedding day. Is there no end to the things that you have to be proud to sully with cheating? Didn’t think so.
You don’t own every experience in life, Nephila. If this post somehow sullies your wedding memories, you have much bigger problems to deal with
you know, it rained on my wedding day too! you can verify via historical weather reports for October 1989 in the Orlando, FL area . We have another thing in common, Nephila. Cheating husbands, dancing in the rain on our wedding days, remaining with the same husbands that cheated on us. Fantastic!
