Obsession with shoes....

When I was a kid, I was lucky to have one pair of sneakers, one pair of dressier shoes and a pair of boots for the winter.  Andrew has an obsession with shoes.  Everytime a new type of sneaker comes out, he MUST have it.  Nike IDs, Zigs, Jordan's just to name a few.  Most times, we don't indulge in his whims.  That's what birthdays and Christmas are for.  Today, however, during a trip to the Wrentham Outlets, we did indulge.  He was eyeing a pair of Zigs - he had been asking for these for months - and it was a buy one get one 1/2 off sale.  I tried on a pair - so comfy - and decided that these would be nice to add to my pale-in-comparison sneaker collection of one. He was so excited when I told him he may as well get a pair since they would be half off.  He threatened to hug me right in the middle of the store - a little PDA from one who is normally way too cool for that.  Now his sneaker collection is eight strong - add to that his snow boots and work boots and this kid has some happy feet!

New Year again.....

I love a New Year! It's like an empty page waiting to be written empty memory card waiting for images...a new beginning, a clean, fresh start. A time for renewal and new promises made to yourself. Most of these promises are easily broken but it doesn't stop us from feeling the need to make new covenants with ourselves anyways. Here's mine....I resolve to make time for myself daily and use that time wisely to be creative. I will write something everyday - even if what I write is nothing. I will take a least one photograph everyday - I won't promise that I will edit everyday but I will take at least one picture. That's all but it's enough.....Happy New Year!!

You are my reason #2 (layout 17.5)

And this is why I love digital!  Color changing with just a few clicks of the mouse.  I think I like it better in yellow....
