I'm of the belief that, whenever possible, every celebration should start with a new pair of shoes. Adelaide and I have some celebrating to do (more on that later), so some new shoes were most definitely in order. These shoes also fill my annual 'hanging on to summer as long as I can - if only by the clothing' habit. We've got two glorious days of sun in the forecast this week, and we are so definitely beach-bound. I won't admit/embrace fall until the annual Common Ground Fair at the end of September. So there's still a few more weeks left to wear my celebratory summer shoes. To the beach.
The boys and I are working on a project for Adelaide (more on that later, too), so Calvin staged and took this photo of Adelaide's favorite shoes. (The photo just about kills me!) We're really a baby-mocassin-as-long-as-you-can kind of family, but Lady A has a thing for these shoes. First thing in the morning, she hunts them down (tossing aside her mocassins) and walks around with them in her hands, grunting and motioning until someone finally puts them on her.
