"This Is" Theme Of The Week

(You can tell by the picture why I don't do photography as a living.)
This weeks 'THIS IS...." theme
is all about shoes. I could not pick just one pair of shoes to showcase. I have picked one dress pair and one everyday pair. My daughter Jaime, got married last year in Mexico. It took me forever to find a pair of shoes to go with my outfit. The brown leather shoes were the first pair I bought, thinking they would do. They didn't work out but the shoes were so great I kept them as a casual pair. I wore them all over Mexico for dinning, dancing, sight-seeing and shopping. I have worn them almost every day since I bought them. They are the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever owned in my life. I bought the dress shoes a week before the wedding when I was in desperate mode. I could not find anything suitable for a beach wedding that weren't too casual and that didn't have a spiked heel. Hubby John, came to the rescue and spied these ones for me. They were perfect. They are so pretty. Clear with sparkly rhinestones on the front criss-cross straps. A clear see through heel that wasn't spiked and wouldn't turn my ankle. They were perfect! I can't believe the number of compliments I have gotten on them. So there they both are. I was able to put my best foot forward and had a great time at the wedding. I love both of these pretty and comfortable shoes and this are the two pairs of shoes that I would sleep in if I could.
for the great theme this week.
Extra, Extra, read all about it!
We were asked to post a pre-1985 picture of ourselves this week.
Here are two of my favourites.
(Sorry, I don't have a scanner so I took a picture of a picture and downloaded
it so the quality is not that great.)

This is a picture of me and my dad when I
was either 14 or 15. That would be 1969 or 1970. I love this picture as it is one of the few that I have of the just the two of us. I grew up in a family that had eight kids and that meant that you didn't get much alone time with either dad or mom.

This is a picture of me at age 24, with baby daughter Jaime & son John. It would have been taken in late 1978 or early 1979.
I was married at the young age of 17 (Oct/72), so this picture shows me as an old, married mother of two.
L.O.L .

How great to have memories associated with your favourite shoes.

Love the pre 85 shots too. Those glasses are just like the ones my Dad used to wear.
