Why “These Feet of Mine”

I’m sure some of you were wondering why I wrote an ode to my feet, particularly as part of my Turning 30 series. It’s a very simple, and painful reason. For the past month it feels like my feet have taken a lot of abuse.

At one point my left foot was in some sort of spasm and I couldn’t point my foot (think ballet point), which I’ve always been able to do. When I did, I had a shooting pain up the big toe across the top.

Then I proceed to stub this toe and the whole foot several times over the course of a week. It always seems like once you stub a toe, you keep on stubbing the same one for a while. Kind of like biting your cheek. Does this happen to anyone else? Or is it just me?

I was also lucky enough to have stepped on several pieces of broken glass. Both Ave and I had broken different things; fortunately it was me who got hurt, not her.

Then I had to have a chunk cut out of the bottom of my right foot, because of a suspicious mole (which ended up being nothing). And they took a chunk (about the size of a marble). It’s been over a week and it still hurts to walk on.

All this to say, that my feet have been on my mind, which made me think about how much our feet do for us and all the places they take us.

I’m not sure yet what I’ll be giving away, but it will be cool…I promise that. It might be some of my beeswax candles or my photo greeting cards or something entirely different.

On Approaching the Big 3-0!

This month something crazy happens {my mom will attest to the fact that she is not old enough for this to happen}: I a1042turn 30. That’s right! A new decade! I’m completely ok with turning 30, but why is it that the numbers always sound so much older than the actual age. I don’t think people who are 60 are old, but that numbers sounds really old.
This month I’m going to {try} to do some fun things around here, not sure what yet, but maybe a giveaway and some fun posts. I think I can manage that. BUT if you have some ideas for giveaways or posts, or things that you think would make for an awesome celebration (your questions for me)…by all means email me! :-)

But first off, let’s kick off the month with Creating Community through Comments! If you signed up, let the commenting begin!
