New Sandals! Just in time

I was feeling a little bit of everything yesterday...tired,
grumpy,
hungry and
just plain sick of my life....and then I rememebered!
I had bought new shoes the day before
Sandals!
I LOVE sandals
Particularly the flip flop variety.
And these were so colorful
and beautiful
and they reminded me of a
day long ago when I was young
and not so beautiful.
I was in that gawky tween age.
It was the summer that we went to
indian ruins in Colorado and New Mexico
and EVERYONE was into wearing native
american stuff.
I loved all of the beads so carefully sewn
together in such bright patterns. It made
me feel exotic and beautiful.
I braided my hair.
I bought a turquoise ring..my first purchase
of REAL jewelry.
I still have it.
I still wear it.
Life is good.
(wanna see a picture of that tween trip??....
not today
tomorrow then. )

what wonderful sandals - they make your feet look positively stunning:) I'm noticing the kids breaking out the sandals here in utah - I haven't been quite brave enough yet, I'm always freezing as it is . . but it makes me think SPRING might be just around the corner:)

Wow! Those are GREAT sandals. And what is even better is your pretty green grass and clovers. What in the world. Our grass is brown as can be in Pennsylvania : (. I am so glad you have green grass wherever you are. God bless.

Love the shoes. I live in FL and LIVE in flip flops, and those are just FABULOUS. I bought a new pair of red sandals last week, and they made me feel happy when they were on my feet... did not have a chance to wear then this week though!
