rainy day activities

Spring is a beautiful, but often fickle, time of year. One moment the sun is shining and the next a torrential downpour descends upon you. It makes for bright green grass and blossoms galore, but it can also put a damper on your plans.

Which is why it’s best to have a backup plan—and willingness to go wherever the road takes you. So when the rain hits, as it does this time of year, you’ll be ready. Here are our favorite ways to spend a rainy day:

Unplug & reconnect: turn off the TV, shut off your devices and spend some quality time together. Dust off those board games you’ve always loved and enjoy the friendly competition.

Treat yourself: Personal indulgence is one of the most pleasurable things in the world. This is the perfect time to partake in one of our favorite spring flavors, citrus. The orange kumquat truffle is just the thing.

Cozy up: There’s just something about rain that makes us want to slow down and recharge. Something warm hits the spot, too: a mug of something rich and dark promises to satisfy.

Just cruise: When was the last time you hopped in your car and drove? No destination in mind, no plan in place—just going wherever your heart desires. It’s more interesting (and relaxing) than you think.
