Pluviophiles & Petrichor

Say It Dont Spray It

Don’t you find it odd that some people view rain as dreary and depressing, while others are completely enamored by it?

Nothing brings me more bliss than gazing out the window on a rainy day, listening to The Postal Service Radio on Pandora, and sipping on coffee or tea.
Cliche, I know… It’s just the place I’m most content.
Also, side note – Pluviophile is not a dictionary word, so don’t judge me..

While I’d love to lay around and stare out windows all day, I must be a productive member of society, meaning: pants.
Well, other clothes too. Cute ones! I think anyway..

While I would love to be an Urban Outfitters, Anthropology, Bloomingdale’s kind of girl… I am stuck being a TJ Maxx and Target girl for now.
Which, honestly, I’m not horribly upset about… Neither is my bank account.

I had to add a photo of my hot ass photographer, sorry babe.

Also, you know that intoxicating smell that fills the air when it’s raining? That’s called petrichor.
Some scientists believe that people inherited their affection for the scent of rain from ancestors who relied on rainy weather for their survival.
But mostly it’s a certain chemical that plants release when it rains, and a bacteria the ground produces when it gets wet. SCIENCE!

Anyway, while I didn’t get to spend my day vegging out and watching it drizzle, I did enjoy my short time spent time outside, taking pictures and laughing.

I hope you all had a really, really good 4/20.

And to all of you pluviophiles and petrichor lovers; keep praying for rain.
We need it & we love it.

First Coffee

One of my favorite things on this planet is coffee.
I know a lot of you can get on board with that.

It gets you through your mornings, soothes your soul, and fuels your adventures.
It’s delightful, world-renowned, and can be contrived in hundreds, possibly thousands of different ways. What’s not to love?
I would go as far as to say that I am passionate about coffee.

So when the amazing company I work for decided to do a new coffee themed shirt, I was like yaaaaaaas. I was super fortunate to get to come up with the concept for this design, then the wonderful Amanda from Wheelie Creative brought my idea to life, and voila!

Here it is, the magical-ness of coffee and adventure all in one beautifully comfortable cream sweater:

I can’t wait to do tons of coffee drinking and some serious exploring in this bad boy.
Also, where are your favorite places to get coffee in the Flathead Valley?
