As the saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers.” We all tend to get pretty excited about the resulting flowers, but what about a little love for those showers?! Rain brings us the chance for puddle jumping, showing off fun umbrellas and going for a walk around the block in brand new rain boots. For those of us who don’t mind a little rain, this week’s roundup is dedicated to a must-have April accessory: umbrellas.
