Shoe Personality of the Week: 11/22/2010
You’ve given your 2-week notice and it’s the last day of your sentence at the job you can’t stand with the co-workers you can stand even less. THIS is the shoe you wear to tell everyone to kiss your natchral ass on your way out the door.

Wear the to cook the next meal you intend to spark a fire with your intended.
Take yourself to dinner. Put these on & turn your self on every time you catch a glimpse of your own foot out from under the tablecloth.
He understands my commitment to comfort & being able to chill, but I also need Him to know that when it’s time, I know how to elevate my game too. For now, this zipper being open is only delicious symbolism.
Where would you go in these shoes? Who would you wear them for? What do they symbolize in your life?
Watch me move.
