Touched by the Rain is a lifestyle blog that embraces everything about the rain. It was inspired by the photo of Pete Saloutos shot on Bainbridge Island on Washington dock. It captures the mood perfectly, as the selection of “rainy” art and poetry on the blog. Since rainy weather is the perfect occasion to accessorize, the blog includes interesting facts and latest fashion trends on umbrellas, trenches, rain boots and other items necessary to stay dry while looking chick and trendy. Just so you don’t get bored waiting for rain to pass, read some book reviews and stories I’ve written while being in the “rainy state of mind”. Enjoy!
