It’s been raining for months now in the Pacific Northwest. And it doesn’t show signs of stopping any time soon. During the long, gray winter months it’s easy to feel cooped up inside. Not that I don’t love laying on my couch and re-watching Gilmore Girls for the 64th time–because I LOVE that. But it’s hard to find inspiration when the only people you see all day are fictional characters. I decided to take a walk the other day–rain be damned!–to clear my mind, and I couldn’t believe how refreshing it felt.
My favorite way to unwind while walking is to listen to a podcast. Namely the Gilmore Guys podcast. Because if I’m not watching, I’m analyzing what I just watched. I swear this is normal. I love people watching too. There’s this tiny bronze beaver statue that some lovely individual dresses up each month. It never ceases to bring me joy. This month’s OOTD–a Columbia Gorge marathon beanie. I mean–just look at him!
This was my first fall in Portland and I have to say–it surpassed all my expectations. It’s endlessly beautiful here. The changing leaves, the river, the beaver statue–all inspire me creatively. And it was totally worth walking in the rain.
Where do you go to find inspiration? Let me know in the comments!
