(Also – new milestone: I am currently blogging from the passenger seat in my car. It’s not bad!)
One of the things I remember most about my Aunt Judy was that she wore slippers everywhere. She always wore the isotoner ballet slipper kind; they were shiny and satin and pretty. And she had tiny feet; when I was 10 I was able to fit into her shoes without issue.
I can’t be certain my memory is right, but I am pretty certain she told me that one of her favorite things about road trips was that she wore her slippers in the car.
Before we left the house on Saturday, I grabbed my slippers – sturdy LL Bean fleece ones with a hard bottom. I didn’t have space in my suitcase so I tossed them into the car.
And I discovered them last night when my feet were sore and I wanted to take off my shoes. Perfection.
I am now trying to convince Jeff that I need a pair of car slippers and a pair of house slippers.
It wasn’t until after lunch that I remembered Judy and her slippers.
And I love that there are things I still share with my aunt, even though she is gone 5 years now.
Love you, Aunt Judy.
