For the first time in my whole life, I was happy with the person looking back at me in the mirror. I had a few wrinkles and my hair was starting to turn grey at the top of my head but it turns out the wrinkles are really laugh lines and people mistook the grey for blonde highlights.
There comes a time in every woman's life (if she's lucky) when she becomes the person she was meant to be. Sometimes, it takes 40 years.... some more, some less.
At 40 years old, I decided that I was confident enough to wear stilettos. I bought them but never wore them out of the house because I bought them a half a size too small. I would have returned them, but I bought them online and in the chaos of moving back to Colorado, I lost the receipt.
I love those shoes and the reminder of them. I think they say that I'm sexy and fun, I'm not afraid of risk and I can party like a rock star! My husband thinks they say that I'm crazy and about to break my neck!
This year, I bought another pair of birthday shoes. I think they reflect my personality much more and that they say I'm a fun Mom. My husband thinks that they say I'm interviewing to be a clown and I don't know how old I am.
I think my husband is jealous.
