To say these shoes have seen better days is an understatement. They outlasted my previous passport. Supported my puffy feet through all of my pregnancies. They've taken me off road, off trail, across rivers, up mountains, down cliff sides.
My husband says this morning: "babe. I want you to order new sandals. Today." He's been gently encouraging and supporting and giving permission for quite some time now. But he's right. These are done. On to a new chapter in my life with new shoes on my feet.
