I love these boots. Pulled on, they make me powerful. I splash through puddles like it's nobody's business. And I need them. Lately, it's been a mix of rain, snow, rain some more and then just for fun, maybe some snow. I used to love wearing rubber boots as a kid, though I have very vivid memories of getting stuck in the mud and having to leave the boot behind, lying there like a wounded soldier. Tears rolling down, walking back to the house covered in mud, calling for my mom. But, like Winnie the Pooh said, "When you see someone putting on his Big Boots, you can be pretty sure an Adventure is going to happen." Adventures await. They always do. Here's to yours and mine and until then, take a peek at these things I'm currently crushing on.
