If you’re not screaming, then you’re reaction is NOT the same as mine! I was on the phone with Ginger, and I think our conversation went from a lot of chit chat to me saying, “Oh my gosh… hold on a minute… I think… Oh my gosh, Oh my gosh, Oh my gosh… AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! TRESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!” Ginger immediately says, “Is it the shoes?!?!? Oh my gosh, Call me back later.” She knew right away! Tres was in the living room, and I could hear him laughing. I tore open the card and read it – it was the sweetest card – and I ran into the living room and jumped right in his lap. Hugging, kissing, and squeezing him, I told him he was the sweetest, most thoughtful, amazing man I have ever known! I could not believe he had bought me my dream wedding shoes!
For those of you who don’t know… When I was a little girl, Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz was my role model. Several times a day, I would put on my blue dress, get my basket with my Pound Puppy, Toto, in it, and watch the movie – skipping around the house singing all the songs. This is no exaggeration, and if you don’t believe it, my mom will tell you the story of how a new VHS tape had to be bought because I wore the first one out. She will also tell you that she and my grandmother searched near and far for red, sparkly shoes but could never find them until I was too old for “Dorothy shoes.” So, I blame Dorothy for my love of shoes and possibly all women’s, but I also thank Dorothy for being the inspiration behind my choice of wedding shoes! If Dorothy herself could come back and design her own shoes, I can almost bet these shoes would be her creation!
