The Midas Touch

There are two things in life I’ve always been sure about: cats and shoes. I’ve never met a cat I didn’t like (though I’ve met a few who weren’t as keen on me #JustLetMeLoveYou) and I’ve always, always been a footwear fanatic. I’ve got booties and peep toes aplenty, I’ve got wedges and sneakers galore. You want flats? I’ve got… more than I should probably admit to. And when it comes to shoes, the funkier the better for this gal. So, it gives me great pleasure to introduce you to the latest, greatest, and perhaps most controversial addition to my collection:

*Siiiiiigh* Aren’t they magnificent? Since I got these bad boys in the mail this past Friday (thank you, Amazon Prime, for being the Mr. McFeely of the present day #SpeedyDelivery), they’ve garnered quite the response. Reactions have ranged from, “GIRL. Where did you get those shoes?! I want a pair! They’re slaying the GAME right now! Your drink is on me!” (thank you, gas station attendant guy for not only appreciating the finer things in life (i.e. light up shoes for adult sized people), but for also fueling my caffeine addiction) to the much less enthusiastic, “Is… is it because we didn’t love you enough as a child?” (Sorry, mom). Now, negative reactions would’ve sent teenage me skulking self consciously towards a dark corner (basically this was me in high school), but adult me? She doesn’t care! Why? Because…

…she’s an adult with gold light up sneakers. Take it from me and laughing Chewbacca mask lady: It’s the little things. Do what makes you happy and as for the hate? Shake it off (shake, shake, shake, shake it off).

Hey There, Sunshine

There’s something about the transition from spring into summer than just feels full of endless possibilities. The sun is out, the skies are blue, and it feels like no matter where you go, you can see for miles.

I want to pack a bag and hit the road, explore new places and see new sights. I want to take advantage of every gorgeous day, make sure every second of sunshine is filled to the brim with joy and laughter. Basically, I want to make up for every winter day spent binge-watching Netflix (and believe me, that’s a lot of episodes of Gilmore Girls and West Wing worth of time).

So here’s to summer and all the amazingness that comes with it. I wish for all of us a season of trying new things, making new memories, and definitely having a good story or two.  I may be squinting from the sun, but I am definitely seeing one awesome summertime in our future!
