The Storm

I opened the box carefully to examine its precious contents. I slowly lifted the cardboard flaps to reveal my book! There were lots of them. I smiled because I still just can’t believe it.

Life is too short to wear uncomfortable shoes.

I love shoes. I mean, I really love shoes. A bad ass pair of shoes can make even the most mundane outfit amazing. Confession: I have a LOT of shoes. I remember when I was in my twenties, “older” women (By older, I mean women in their forties LOL…who are not so old now to...
