rainy day in Chiang Mai

I love rainy days, especially when spent in a sweet coffee shop in Thailand...

Even better, when the sweet coffee shop has the world's best iced mochas...

"And maybe when a person doesn't buy the lies anymore, when a human stops long enough to realize the stuff people say to get us to part with our money often isn't true, we can finally see the sunrise, smell the wetness in a Gulf breeze, stand in awe at a downpour no less magnificent than a twenty-thousand-foot waterfall, ten square miles wide, wonder at the physics of a duck paddling itself across the surface of a pond, enjoy the reflection of the sun on the face of the moon, and know, This is what I was made to do. This is who I was made to be, that life is being given to me as a gift, that light is a metaphor, and God is doing these things to dazzle us."
-Through Painted Deserts by Donald Miller

I've got a lot of thoughts I've been storing up while on this trip. I've decided to be in the moment for now. Pics to come when I return back to the US.

peace,
Abby
