Hi there, So glad you stopped by! I’m Angela, the creator and author of this here blog. I’m a 20-something post grad living in the Midwest metropolis of Des Moines. I created Tulips & Rain to share all my tasty treats, DIYs and favorite pretty things. So what’s up with the name you ask? Tulips are the first inspirational sign of spring, a beautiful timeless floral and of course–one of my favorite things. Rain always makes me feel so creative. When I’m holed up inside with the pitter-patter of drops hitting the window I always get my best ideas. And it just may have been raining the day I thought up the name for this blog way back in 2011.
