green jimmy choos

dear emily,

hans and i celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary the night of our
lovely niece's rehearsal dinner.    the coinciding events made each
one even more special, but my feet enjoyed themselves the most.

a week ago, hailey and i were taking a circle through sak's shoe dept. 
we consider this a museum expedition, gawking at beautifully crafted
works of art.  at the back of the department i saw a vision of loveliness
that took my breath away . . . green suede jimmy choo pumps.

hailey noticed my elation and began listing the outfits in my closet that
they could happily accompany.    but, the extravagance paired with the
idea that being so memorably green, i couldn't wear them often, dissuaded
me from even trying them on.   i imagined a certain person whispering to
a certain other person,  "i saw lea in her old green shoes again."

a week later there were several of us huddling around our kitchen table
computers, postponing the fancying up for the rehearsal dinner when hans
marched in.    he wore a triumphant expression, carrying a saks bag, and
'i just knew it held a jimmy choo' (dr. seuss shout out.)

as i was dreamily gazing at my gorgeous foot, shelby said, "samara will
LOVE dressing up in those."   :)

love,
lea

"every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father
of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows."

I can't wait to see them! But who is samara?

Terra said...

Oh, give us a photo of your new emerald shoes.

This reminds me of my aunt, who fell in love with a mink coat while shopping for Christmas one year. She finally passed on it. Her husband got wind and bought it for her for Christmas. In the meantime, unable to rid her mind of that stinkin' coat, she went back to the store and bought it for herself. She opened a duplicate and a lesson on Christmas morning. :)

Debbie said...

how exciting! But what, no picture? haha

myletterstoemily said...

ha! no picture, girls! don't want anyone to be
'green.' :)

ronda: samara is emily's daughter.

Farm Girl said...

How very sweet. Isn't being married 33 years just the best? Okay, a picture of these lovely vision of shoes. Please. I love, love those kinds of shoes.

Vee said...

Your hubby sounds like a happily married man who is completely secure with his wife wearing green shoes. John would love it as green is his favorite color. Happy Anniversary!

Cinnamon said...

What a beautiful testimony of love you have. John and I will are on our 27th yr of marriage. It just keeps getting better and better.

Funny thing is now when we go out he says "lets go buy you a pair of shoes" and when I ask him why (cause that's not he man I married) he says "cause they make you happy" awww....certainly blessed we are!

Just too sweet...

Happy Anniversary, Lea and Hans; may you have many more. As to the shoes, if I could still walk upright in heels, I might be envious.
But I can't and I'm not.
LOL!

Elizabeth Day said...

This post deserves a picture, Ms Lea.

Samara's mom said...

Yes, Samara would LOVE them. And would pick them in a heartbeat over all the others. :) :)

Joan Elizabeth said...

I do envy you wearing your non-sensible shoes. Greeeen with envy.

Southern Lady said...

Oh, if only I had some green shoes! -Carla

Sonja Goodson said...

First... Happy Anniversary!!

Second... I went back to a special store in Northpark 3 times before I let myself buy the fitted green coat!! It would probably match your Jimmy Choo's, but it's one of my all time favorite buys, 4 years ago. Not only is it still snappy and beautiful, but I also saw a similar GREEN coat in this month's Style magazine!!

We're good! :)

Susan B said...

Sweet story!

And Happy Anniversary!! :)

Single and Sane said...

What a fun surprise! I want to see a picture, too! I promise not to be green with envy.

Auntie Cake said...

I think we would all love dressing up in those! What a sweet gift! Enjoy those babies enough for all of us. What a guy, if my honey were to buy me anything to go on my feet, it would definitely be new boots to muck out- well you know what you muck...
Happy Anniversary, sounds like it was a wonderful day! May you enjoy many more,
Kate

Cindy said...

I want to see a picture, too! lol

Janette's Sage/Simply Your Decor said...

This so makes me smile...he is a man after my own husband's heart and my hubby would have done the same thing.
Well congrads on 33 years, we celebrated ours in June..now I hope you enjoyed those green shoes.

Anita said...

Icing on the cake would be if they are also comfortable! :)

And if they're not, it's okay, because we are strong and tenacious women, able to endure a little foot pain in the face of beauty.

I've heard many good things about Jimmy Choo's, so I'm guessing they are comfortable. EnJoy them! And Happy Anniversary!

Your accompanying scriptures are always good.
