Spring Showers: What to Do On A Rainy Day (a guest blog at Cleveland Plus’ #BeThePlusBlog)

April showers bring May flowers, right? Now, I know I missed a good chunk of this month as I was away in Colorado for back-to-back yoga trainings (more on that next week), but there’s something about the spring rain that puts me in a sense of calm — and eases my poor Grady dog’s brand new tree pollen allergy!

Even after all that calming energy, I, too, get stir crazy and am ready to get out and about, no matter the Spring weather conditions. Turns out so do the folks about Cleveland Plus, so we teamed up to give Northeast Ohioans inspiration on what to do when the weather turns south.
