They became known as my 'Flower Socks' and every time I wore them we both smiled. One of those lovely inside jokes.
Fast forward to this week and Sally Russick's latest Focus on Life challenge: to find and photograph hearts in our every day lives. Specifically, Capture our Hearts.
I immediately thought of those Flower Socks, still tucked away in the back of my drawer. They've been joined by lots of other fun socks over the years: quirky socks, bright bold oh-my-gosh socks and of course, cuddly warm socks.
Like the pair above, a Christmas gift from Mom last year, photographed with my new (purple) boots. I went shopping earlier this week hoping to replace my very-worn pair of black lace-up boots and brought these home instead. A definite splurge since I still need new black boots. But how could I resist!? 'I could always return them' I assured myself. Which was a lie, because I knew when Joe saw them he'd smile and say I should definitely keep them.
|another Christmas gift - from two of my best friends - skulls & hearts, aargh!
And yes, my husband does on occasion bring home flowers (but never when they're expected, which is as it should be).
