19:365 The Good Doctor

The last 3 weeks haven't been very kind to me, so today I bought myself some shoes. Regardless of what's going on, shoes always help.

During my b.c. era (before child), I had built up quite a collection of Doc Martens. While I was pregnant, my feet grew 1/2 size, and I had to give them all up. It was pretty traumatic for me, and I hadn't bought any in over a decade. When I saw these today, I just knew they would make me feel better.

Nostalgia is a funny thing; whether it's music, certain foods, or a brand of shoes, the familiarity threads through my life, connecting all of the different selves I've been over the years. These shoes are like comfort food for my feet.
