so let me go back to my roots by posting my newest purchase -- one that is only a little more than an hour old:
lovely, lovely purple sneakers with fabric rosettes.
they're superga, which according to the paperbag they came in, are "people's shoes of italy".
so what if i was late this morning (after faithfully waking up early each and every day of february so i'd get perfect attendance) because of a flat tire, and so what if i'll have to wake up early tomorrow to do a lecture that i only found out about last thursday. so what if i still have to finish the minutes for two board meetings, hopefully by the end of the day, and so what if i don't have a retreat venue for this lenten season yet.
i have a new pair of shoes and i'm wearing them now. life if WONDERFUL.
