I have so much to write about, so many stories and feelings I want to share from my short, but oh-so-precious and unexpected visit with my family.
The right words just still haven’t come to me yet.
While you’re waiting for me to come around with something more meaningful, I’ll entertain you with my spur-of-the-moment shoe purchase from yesterday.
I was out for a little Sunday afternoon shopping trip. You know the scenario.
You’re feeling kind of unnerved and edgy, but it’s nothing that a little retail therapy couldn’t cure. Quite frankly, for me it works like a charm every time.
I was walking through Nordstrom Rack with my cell phone pressed to my ear, talking rapidly in German with Kim and trying to make a decision about the armful of shoes that I had clamped under my arm. It surely must have been quite entertaining to watch. I think the guy at the shoe check-out was quite amused as well, what with the hand-gesturing and head-pointing.
Can’t you see I am too busy talking on the phone to follow proper shopping rules?
[Actually, I usually never ever do that – talk on the phone at a check-out line. How rude. Phew!]
But alas, when my conversation came to an end, I also had made my decision about the shoes. Yep. I am a multi-tasker and I can do it anywhere!
These were the winners.
And here I was, thinking I didn’t like the latest style of flats. (In fact, I am somewhat picky when it comes to shoe styles.)
Obviously, you just have to present the right kind to me. The cute kind. At 43% off.
And just like that I am a happy girl again :)
My sister would say: Those shoes are so Y.O.U.
Ahem, if you know me, you’d agree: quite true, so me!
