This morning I woke to pouring rain and thunderstorms so I thought for sure my picture taking plans would be ruined. Fortunately for me the clouds cleared around 3 p.m. and Nick and I were able to step out for some shots. The weather actually seemed to do a complete 360 as we were greeted by sunny skies and 70 degree heat. I bought this raincoat from Sears before I studied abroad in South Africa for fear of getting caught in a rainstorm while out touring and volunteering. It didn’t rain once while I was abroad (thank you God!) however I’ve been getting a lot of use out of it lately here back home.
