Last night was a turn off the lights, abandon everything on the to-do list, and watch the thunderstorm outside kind of night. Darrin and I sat on our living room couch in the dark, eating frozen pizza and watching the rain hit the windows. The first thunderstorm of the season did not disappoint. The lightning was bold…the thunder lived up to its namesake…and we spent most of the night snuggled up on the couch listening to the rain wash over Minneapolis. We like the rain. Our first date waaaay back in high school was on a rainy day. His baseball practice had been cancelled, and he knew I had an unhealthy love and need for liked coffee, so we sat at a corner table in the nearby coffee shop talking about our families and favorite movies while the rain pounded against the windows. Some six years later, when Darrin asked me to marry him, he gave me (among other things…like a ring) a large mason jar filled with rain water he had collected for months before his proposal. “Rain means new beginnings,” he had said. So we like the rain. And a thunderstorm on the first night of April has just got to be a sign for good things to come.
