Do Heels Deserve Our Heart & Soul?

Monday, March 25th, 2013

Men will never understand the relationship women have with shoes.

I know that’s a blanket statement and I realize not every woman can relate. . . but I also know that most women over 40 – in fact all women – love our shoes.  We don’t all treat them with loving care. But we don’t all treat our men/partners that way either. But we do indeed form relationships with our pumps, sandals and wedgies that defy logic or, better stated, define us.

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

I love grocery shopping. No; really. I may not love having to grocery shop, but while I’m there I look at it like any other shopping trip. Except in the grocery store I can basically buy anything I want.
