For a rainy Monday.

April 9, 2013
Mm. So much joy. I love that song, and I love the ocean. Post mission, I will have my Associate’s. And then… jobs available and life willing, I really want to save my pennies and go to BYU-Hawaii. They have my favorite major, oh, ever. 
And I’d be in the sun and by an ocean every day. It’s a dream right now, but I would so love to come back and make it a reality. BYU-HI 2015! Here’s hoping. 
Despite my awkwardly NOT knowing how to swim for the first 16 years of my life, water and I get along quite nicely these days. Swimming has become one of my favorite things. 
And the ocean? It holds a special place in my heart. The give and take, the smell, the little sting of it when you’re only just slightly sunburned. 
It makes for a happy Shelby. 
What makes YOU happy on rainy days? I want to know. 🙂

I DEMAND you go to Hawaii so I can come visit you. But also… stay here in my bed. Not like… with me… that would be weird. We can trade nights for bed and sleeping bag usage.

Lazing around in my bad with candles burning in my room makes me happy on rainy evenings!

Beautiful song. I love the smell and the sound it makes on my tile roof. Something wonderfully melancholy about rainy days for me.
