Shoe Love! + Some Marriage Thoughts

So how many times have you thought today is Monday? Surprise! It’s not. It’s Tuesday Shoes Day, woo woo!  I looove when we get to ‘skip’ Monday plus we get to look at gorgeous footwear.

Ok well we didn’t really skip Monday, but you know what I mean.  It was actually a very important Monday and I hope we all took a moment to remember why we weren’t laboring on Labor Day.  It was also a very important personal Monday for me: it was my 2nd wedding anniversary!  It has gone by quickly and marriage has proven to be more special than I could’ve ever imagined.  While I feel I have a lot to learn as a wife, I know I have the best husband in the world for me.

***The shoes are coming, I swear***

In two years I’ve gained:  an undisclosed number of pounds (watch out for that one, ladies!),  an insane and useless amount of football and movie trivia, approximately four gray hairs, and a partner.  Before I was married I thought I knew what that was and what it meant, but only since saying those few words to cross this threshold did I really feel it.  It’s different.  I can feel the (joyous) weight of it every day.

In two years I’ve lost:  one half of the bed and 6 forks.  Seriously, where do the forks go? We do not have children. We do not have pets…so where are they hiding?  Do we have walking utensils? Am I eating them? I don’t know. I suggest you go ahead and register for TWO sets of silverware!  Maybe they are running away with the socks… 

***Here are the shoes!!***

Fine. It’s fall.  Whatever.  I will reluctantly start preparing my sandals and wedges for hibernation – as long as you promise I can keep them within reach for when my husband wisks me away to Fiji (wishful thinking)!  But for real, these shoes are making my transition blissful.  Check out Omelle, stat.

I love that the socks are built in!

But isn’t this a wedding blog? Yes it is, thanks for noticing! So let’s take a look at some Omelle beauties in action –

I would love to link you to these but I can’t. These particular shoes were one-of-a-kinds designed just for this bride – by the bride! She is Cherise Angelle, one half of Omelle together with Nicole LaFave.  Pretty awesome team, huh?  You can see more of the bride and groom here, on Junebug Weddings.  (Photography by Elizabeth Messina)

I can’t wait to see the Spring 2011 line! What do you think of Omelle? Will you be taking advantage of the sales?!  Which ones would you buy?
