While Ocean Dreamer glammed it up in sparkly heels this Christmas, holidaymakers to our little town walked around the malls barefoot. I am a bit of a germophobe, so I only did it once. On New Year's Eve, 10 minutes to closing time, my hubby decided to go buy more ice-cream. I had no time to put on shoes and when we got to the mall, it was very quiet, so I decided to get out and go look for some chocolate. It was liberating!!!
Apart from that I spent a lot of time telling my daughter to "PUT ON YOUR SHOES!!!". Really, I know that we live on the beach, but there's a time and a place when shoes are necessary. I learned that the hard way just 3 days ago, when I walked to the beach and back barefoot. My feet are still hurting from burning on the hot tar road and the sizzling beach sand.
Most excitingly, my BFF had a little baby boy! He is so adorable that one can become broody from spending 5 minutes with him. Those tiny little hands... and precious little feet! Of course, the stores are full of the cutest little baby shoes.
Just look at these:
Don't you just want one too?
