to shoe or not to shoe?


yes, these are my glitter shoes again, brought out for special occasions. 

while i do so love to be barefoot or in sandals whenever possible

there are times when shoes are needed,

like novemeber-march in michigan

and sometimes on small holidays or dance party fridays.

“when I die I don’t want to be wearing shoes.

i want to have just enough notice so that I can pull them off and get comfortable.

shoes mean death snuck up on you.

shoes mean you had other plans.”

  1. This resonates loudly with me. My shoes come off before I even come in my house. Working from home, there may be weeks I don’t put shoes on! (Fun little side note, I have been doing home visits for my career for over 20 years, I STILL have a hard time not kicking off my shoes on people’s porches or in their foyers.)

  2. I am rarely barefoot, except on a beach in summer. When I go out on the dog-walk, I usually wear long rubber boots. (Wellingtons) Then when I get home, I take off the boots and thick socks before slipping into some cosy sheepskin bootee slippers. However, I rarely wear socks, unless I have to. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
