I've had this idea in my head for awhile now so I couldn't wait for April to roll around so I could make it happen!
April showers bring May flowers....at least that's what my mom always told me. And when I think of rain, the Rhianna song Umbrella always gets stuck in my head. I actually really like that song, which is strange because I am usually not a fan of anything Top 40, especially dancey music like this. But there's something about the words to this song that appeal to me. So much that they inspired my 15th plate!
Here in Fresno CA, we get most of our 'spring' rain in January and February, and by the time April rolls around we are having weather similar to June's in most other places. In June it's 105 here and that's when I start hibernating. I wish we were having more rain right now so it would stay cooler longer. But I digress.
Although this plate doesn't exactly reflect the Fresno springtime experience, it reminds me of growing up in NJ and waiting desperately for some nice weather to come around so we could finally get out of the house. I have great memories of those times and think about them often. What I wouldn't do to have just one more April with my family in NJ!
