Sometimes I think “EASILY EXCITED” should be tattooed on my forehead so I don’t alarm people when I gasp about just how incredible the cranberry orange muffin I’m biting into tastes. Or whatever else it is that’s catching my fancy at the moment. (It runs in my family, it seems, and just the other day my dad called me and had me on the phone for three hours while he waited for his new iPad to arrive from FedEx. I can only hope that when I’m 50+ I still find things like this thrilling and exciting.)
But I’ll tell you, my heart fluttered when I found these rain boots in the store a few weeks ago. Tom told me to keep an eye out for “the pair” before our trip to Ireland, but luckily for us it didn’t rain during our three week stay (unheard of!) so I managed to get away without them. But when I saw these babies -it was love at first sight- I tried them on immediately, fell in love, and asked them if they’d like to come home with me. They said yes of course, so I wandered through the store with them on and carried my shoes with me until check out. I’ve been dying to try them out ever since, and do a little rain dance every morning. I’ll even admit to wearing them when there wasn’t a rain cloud in sight.
This weekend Tom and I did a collaborative photoshoot to break them in, he took his first bokehrama (photo #1 is a 4 photo stitch), and I discovered a new found love for levitation photos. I hope your weekend was as grand as ours, or grander!
