Retiring my first pair of "mommy" shoes...
This is truly a moment I thought I would never experience in my life. I never thought I would wear out a pair of shoes so much that I would have to throw them away. This pair of shoes has been to the end of the road and back (literally). I bought these shoes a year ago as my official first pair of "MOMMY" shoes. Before having Austin, my closet was full of heals and pretty shoes that could go with anything. When I realized that those pretty shoes weren't going to work with a newborn, they quickly moved to the back of the closet and well the mommy shoes came to the front.
I just have to laugh though when I write about this because all of my wardrobe has changed and I don't remember the last time I actually dressed up like I use to. Now it's what's comfy and cute and the kind of attire that will get me through my day even if the applesauce falls into my lap...lol! Anyhow, moving onto the rest of the story...so I go to take a picture of this monumental moment and who decide to pop his head in....Austin! It actually makes the story even better because it just goes to show you that your world truly does change when you have a young child...hence trying to take a picture (by myself)! I couldn't help it though he was so cute:)
Well Kenneth Cole flats that I bought on Macy's clearance rack a year ago...you have done your job and I am thankful. It's a sad day to see you go, but your soles are worn and my feet are getting wet. Adios!
My year, my story, one picture at a time...
