Friends and Shoes

I have the best friends.  People with compassion and empathy in their hearts.  It isn't easy to find friends as wonderful as mine, so I cherish them dearly.

One of my close friends is Fuzzy.  She has a motorcycle blog that transcends the genre as she presents humor, insight and various topics of general interest.  I'd read her blog even if I didn't like motorcycles.

For my upcoming birthday (on Saturday), Fuzzy gave me a gift.  Removing the wrapping paper, I squealed with delight.  She bought me shoes!  Not only shoes, but BEAUTIFUL shoes!  My favorite color, a chic design, and -- best of all -- they fit!  Size 12, which is hard to find.

The thought behind a gift like this -- pure acceptance and love -- mean more to me than anything.  I'm a lucky gal with terrific friends.

Here are the shoes...

  8. PS: Is that the shoe house near York, PA? I grew up near Lancaster and we drove past a house that looked just like that on the way home a lot.

    1. I think so. The person in the picture is Fuzzy and she visited it on one of her motorcycle adventures. I'm pretty sure you're right.

  10. Oh My God!! Yes, I had to spell it out rather than the obligatory OMG. Those shoes are so, so gorgeous. The color, the material (satin?), the design, the perfect heel, EVERYTHING!! Plus, you look divine in them. Friends like that are hard to come by. I'll be by to meet Fuzzy. Clearly they have great taste.
