Re: the shoes. 1) I have Nike Frees and they are absolutely my favorite running shoes ever. After years of ill fitting shoes for my super long narrow feet, my feet feel so happy in them. Mine are a cool color but not as cool as yours. 2) I have been reminded by some things lately that buying stuff can be ok. Stuff is not the answer to big struggles, but sometimes a new thing helps us cope and move along when we need a bright spot and a new mindset. And as a somewhat anti-stuff person (though my Amazon purchase history might not support it), it's been a good lesson for me.
@eamcvey They are definitely bright! I was at the post office and an older gentleman said, "Ohh, where are my sunglasses!" Ridiculous. I definitely agree about "stuff" not being the answer but sometimes something small can give a little boost. I hope you and your guys are doing great!
