New Favorite Shoe

(Payless Shoes – $17.00. I KNOW, RIGHT?!)

These shoes have about a 2 1/2 inch heel.

That’s a big deal. Mainly because I’m 5’10 WITHOUT heels, so whenever I wear heels, I’m over six feet tall.

Which spells AWKWARD if you’re a female.

And when your husband is shorter than you are.

My height used to really bother me. I’ve always hated being tall. The only time I’ve ever been GLAD I was tall was when I gave birth to my sons because I knew they would probably inherit my tallness … and I’m right: Dude is now taller than I am, Jazz isn’t far behind.

Being tall sucks. Especially when you’re the tallest in your class up until Junior year in high school. There’s just something … demeaning having to always look down on people. (Both literally and figuratively. *ahem*)

But I love heels. What girl doesn’t? They make you feel sexy and women’s legs look so hot in heels. I would totally wear heels more often, if I wasn’t so tall to begin with. As a result, I’ve avoided heels my entire life.

I even got married in ballet slippers because I didn’t want to be taller than Kevin.

True story.

But now? Pfft. I don’t care. I dig these types of shoes and they’re surprisingly comfortable. And Kevin ASSURES me that it doesn’t bother him that I’m taller than he is.

So, I’m going to start wearing more heels. Because I’m getting older and it’s true what they say, you simply stop caring so much what other people think when you get older.

Suddenly, I’m looking forward to getting older. *grin*
