i love that clare called me today to see if i actually went for my run. accountability is a serious motivator for me.
a wee conversation with a friend about shoes led me to think seriously about all my shoe phases throughout my life. when i was 9 yrs old my mom bought me a pair of yellow leather mary janes and i’ve been a fan of fun shoes ever since. in the 6th grade i was fascinated with Tretorn tennis shoes – the ones where you could change out the color of the graphic on the side of the shoe (they were velcro). then it was the flimsy china mary janes in 7th grade. then it was dr martens and fluvogs for a bit. then in was birkenstocks in college. and now, i’ve settled for danskos. i think it would be fascinating to have a photo essay about the shoes we’ve worn in our lives. they represent so much of our journey, our memories, our stages in our lives, our youth, our growth. i wish i had photos of all my favorite shoes from the time i was little to now. how cool would that me?
speaking of photos, i have officially finished uploading every single photo taken with our digital camera the last couple of years on my flickr site. it was a serious endeavor, but i’m so happy to have all our digital photos in one place that is easily viewable by others and that can easily be updated as time goes on. i am in love with flickr.
