I bought these boots with the intention of crossing them off by "to buy for fall" list. But the second they showed up at my house I wanted to wear them, with everything. It is still blazing hot here with suffocating humidity, but damn it I want to wear boots.
The other day I went to lunch downtown with some friends from Alaska, and some new to me faces as well. We got to talking about Alaska and very quickly realized how much we all missed it. If you would have told me I would be singing this tune four years ago when we got orders to Alaska I would have fallen off my chair laughing. Especially since my first winter there almost put me in a straight jacket. But, the more we are away from that magical place the more we miss it. Chris instantly falls into a deep dark depression every time he walks into the garage and sees his skis hanging on the wall. His camping and fishing gear all tucked away in the corner. Do not get me wrong, I LOVE the heat. I am still in a total euphoric state even while sweating outside watching my children play. I don't think I will be able to say that I miss the winters so much in Alaska. I will miss the winter activities, but when I don't have to put snow pants on all my cherubs to go to the grocery store in January, I will be a happy camper.
So it is totally a bipolar attitude towards it all.
I do enjoy dressing for fall, I mean who doesn't? With the layers, and the sweaters, and boots, oh my. So little sprinkles of fall seem to slip into my wardrobe sometimes. These boots will be on heavy rotation the next several months.
I'm a little excited about it!
