The sun came out today. Not in a half-hearted manner, either, but in full force. We Californians came out as well, blinking up at that bright thing in the sky and gleefully stripping off our outer layers to relish in its feeble warmth. There were even people laying out by the pool at the gym this morning.

It was that kind of day though, one where you feel overly optimistic about everything, enough to bare your torso despite the fact that really it’s only about 60 degrees outside. Driving home with the windows down and the music up, sunshine streaming in… I found that I couldn’t seem to keep the grin off my face.

It’s almost worth a week of rain to feel that good about the sun. Almost.
