Happy Monday and almost April! It is pouring down rain here so stripes and nautical decor seem appropriate (in a wet and rainy sort of way). Have you ever been at the beach during a storm? It's hot and humid outside, and the sound of the rain and the ocean waves crashing is almost comforting? There is nothing to do but sit inside and listen to the storm. It makes me want to put on pjs and curl up with a good book. I love the beach rain or shine, and I especially love stripes and all things nautical.
