Umbrellas (I won't say ella ella...even though I just did.)

I love a good thunderstorm and I also love a good umbrella. Yesterday I thought I left my umbrella in my basket at the grocery store so I was more than happy to find it safe in my car. It's cute and has hearts all over it but I try not to get too emotionally attached to my umbrellas because I always lose them. I believe in paying it forward when it comes to umbrellas. I have left umbrellas in so many places and I'm sure people were thankful for my absentmindedness if they find it on a rainy day. Therefore I am okay with also taking umbrellas that have been left behind by people, unless of course I know whose it is, then I promise I return it after using. I also don't take umbrellas if they are in someone's house. Or someone's hand.
I found these cute umbrellas that are hopefully harder to lose.

I love this piece of artwork by rosiemusic.
Don't lose this umbrella organizer!

I feel like this post has left the impression that I steal umbrellas. I don't... necessarily. I just think of it like the "leave a penny take a penny" dish you see at gas stations. I leave and take. Happy rainy day!

now I have that song stuck in my head.

I was once given an umbrella by a homeless man in London. We were talking on the pavement and he insisted I should have his red umbrella and even though I was already soaked I thought it was really nice and had to accept it.
