Kiss me in the rain - Umbrellas and rain boots for women
April showers bring May flowers - And the need for umbrellas.
I'm the first one to run outside on a rainy day and wait for my fabulous boyfriend to wander by and kiss me in the rain. There's something so romantic feeling to me as raindrops shower my face and his kiss warms my soul. I rarely bring an umbrella along, unless it's a deluge outside, but I do always have an umbrella or two in my car. And, as I walk my soon-to-be soggy dogs in a soft summer rain, I love to don a pair of beautiful rain boots and stay dry under a fashionable umbrella - the more colorful the rain boots and umbrella, the better in my book.
So, when I wandered across a beautiful woman's umbrella on Amazon.com today, I knew I had to have it. In fact, there it is, right there in the photo. I love the bright color and the sunny pattern. This umbrella is sure to bring grins to my fellow rain walkers this spring.
I think a beautiful umbrella for your woman friend would be an excellent Valentine's day, birthday, or Mother's Day gift. After all, one can never have too many umbrellas.

My favorite video about rain
Who can forget Gene Kelly's dance in Singing in the Rain? Well, if you have, or, more likely, you're too young to have seen this fantastic musical, give it a try. Just click on the link below. And, as a bonus, there's also Barbra Streisand (one of my favorites), singing Don't Rain on my Parade.
The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain.

Like a fun tie for a man, rain boots are somewhere in your wardrobe where you can let your (wet) hair down and have some fun. Why be serious when you're going to be stomping in rain puddles?!

A perfect umbrella for a dog walker.
I'm a huge fan of dogs - just ask Barley, Killian, Rita, Gizmo, Matee, and Wilbur. Don't bother asking the cat, J.B. - he's not a fan of dogs. I think this umbrella makes quite the statement for the dog lover.

..an umbrella for the dog...
My dogs would not be seen in public sportin' this dog umbrella (and, in fact, this Fido doesn't appear too pleased), but I still think this is really funny - for other people's dogs! It's bad enough that I have to dress my smallest dogs in coats on cold days...

My mom and I both loved the rain. In fact, at her funeral, a light rain started as I walked out the door to the grave site. I saw this as verification that she was thinking of me. The thought still warms my heart.
