I thought I would get in on this little link party. It seemed like a pretty good journaling topic---Shoes! Not literally, but rather the many shoes we wear and why and how they fit us. I laughed!! Really? I HAVE to wear shoes!!! My favortie pair of shoes are my rope sandals. I have been known to wear them to church even (hey if the shoe fits wear it!) I have many pairs of you shoes. If you look in my closet you will find high heels, low heels, flip flops, tennis shoes (running shoes to be exact--but don't let that fool you), dance shoes, western boots, dressy boots, sandals, did I say flip flops, dressy sandles, every day sandals. Judging by my closet I guess you would think that maybe I am a woman of many talents. How do these shoes fit into my life?
My next favorite are my western boots. I mostly wear them when we go dancing. They seem to be my date night shoes and they were a Christmas gift from my husband. Well that explains it! It seems they have some eternal meaning. They will never go out of style and I get to dance with my husband in them. They are my wife shoes--haha!
My high heels are my dressiest shoes. I really don't wear them much, but occasionally I like to get dressed up and walk in heels. Something about heels makes me feel girlie, like playing dress as a little girl. I guess they are my me shoes. (I have 3 pair by the way!)
Then there are the tennis shoes (remember I said they are my running shoes). I would have to include my Dr. Marten mary janes, and my Mudd calic mary janes with these. When I am running kids, errands or meeting with midwives or midwifery clients these are the shoes that you will see me in. Comfortable, durable, supportive, and easy to run in. I think these activities are the ones that I feel like I need the most support with, thus the reason for supportive shoes.
I love shoes, always have. I would have a closet full if I could. My shoes are many as are my interests and activities.
