An Auspicious Day

Today is my architect’s birthday. It is the 6th birthday I’ve helped him celebrate – which simultaneously seems like a lot and not that many. We’ve been together for 5 ½ years, and married for 1 ½. When we started out, we were in our early 30s & mid 20s; – the differences between 25 & 31/32 & 38 seem enormous. Although, in all fairness, I have to point out that I’m still not as old as he was when we met. Cradle robber. *ahem*

We’ve been through a lot in the last almost six years, and I imagine we’ll go through a lot more in the next six. But honestly? I can’t wait.

I love you.

Also – Happy birthday Dr. Marcy! Sorry I didn’t publicly wish you such yesterday. And you really need to look into why your voice mail cut me off only half way through my message to you. Time limits on voice mail are for losers.

I promise the return of shoe porn next week. I have been letting everyone down. In the meantime, I need shoe help! At my new job, I walk a lot. Far, far distances. For instance, just a little while ago, I had to go get a signature from someone, and it was ½ mile there and back. And that was just one of my many daily trips. I don’t spend nearly as much time at my desk as I used to, and there are stairs. I love the walking & the stairs. Makes me feel better about the gravy I had for lunch. BUT, as someone whose work shoe collection is almost exclusively 3-inch heels (and whose work pants are all hemmed for 3-inch heels), I need advice on a summery (I’m assuming summer will hit any moment) pair of heels (I would rather suffer than wear flats every day, because I am crazy a fashionista) that I can walk in without limping by the end of the day. I would accept 2-inch heels, because I am a compromiser. Any ideas?
