I got my anniversary gift today!


4 years ago, I met Lana when I was out two-stepping one night. Though we're not big country music fans, we love to dance to it. We went dancing all the time in our first year together...several times a week, but I'd started developing plantar fasciitis before we met, and as my feet got worse we weren't able to go out dancing any longer. After 5 long years, I'm slowly seeing some improvement.


As I thought about what to do for Lan for our anniversary, I found myself thinking a lot about how much we miss dancing. I decided to have leather soles added to the only type of shoe that gives me some relief. So, essentially, I was going to give her a pair of shoes - for me, that would allow us to go dancing again.


As unlikely as it sounds, she had a similar gift in mind. She did one better, though. She found a pair of boots that have a super cushy sole that can be removed to accommodate my orthotics if they're not comfy enough. And they're super cute, too! I think it's so sweet that we gave each other the same gift...


I had to wait to get the right color, and the wait was long - over a month, but I've got them now and I love everything about them.
