Happy birthday to me…

March 13, 2013

We are not big birthday people in our family. I am so NOT a party person and after the kids got past the birthday party stage, that was it. I do, however, like my birthday to be about choosing…I get to choose without feeling guilty that I might choose something that was not someone else’s preference. Perhaps because I am the oldest of four girls, I learned early on that life went more smoothly if choice was ceded to the sister who cared the most. Or perhaps it is because that is my personality, my comfort zone. It would certainly explain why I was most comfortable working in solo law offices, directly with one person, ensuring that that person’s life went as smoothly, as comfortably and as pleasantly as I could make it.

However, back to choosing…for my birthday this year, I ordered a pair of shoes which will probably never see the light of day on my feet. I ordered a pair of brightly flowered, HIGH heel, peep-toed pumps. And when I say high heel, I mean a 4″ heel…me, who has trouble keeping my balance walking down the driveway in my comfie boots…I may never wear them, but they will be mine…they will sit in my closet and brighten the lives of my ordinary, comfortable but not stylish shoes and boots. So, there.

Happy birthday to me…

    I want a picture. I love shoes, even though my feet don’t! My kids have some of the cutest high heels & would love to be able to wear them!
