Rain, rain, don't go away.

I'm sitting in one of my favorite coffee shops in downtown Greenville, drinking strong and delicious coffee, with my beau just across the table from me. I finished reading a good book today, and I have a new, fresh one awaiting me. I'm listening to the sweet voice of Jeff Buckley as I write, and it is a rainy day. There is something very calming about the rain. Probably because it makes me envision long, relaxing days filled with napping on the couch, reading a good book, and movie watching. Today, that is what I'm getting.

Life is good. And I'm writing again. Blogging really. It is both exciting and a little uncomfortable to be posting my thoughts to the world, but I've been wanting to write again for awhile, so here it is. Happy Friday!
