So today is Friday, July 25 and the first day of my 6 week summer vacation and I couldn’t be happier.  I love my job and everyone I work with, but I love my summers off too!  My beautiful step-daughter, Savannah, is now with us for the summer and she – DEEP BREATH – fits in my shoes!  This is NOT good news.

She loves shoes and loves to go in the shoe/computer/bedroom and drool over which shoes I’ll let her try on.  We were in there last night trying a bunch on… it was fun!  She’s growing like a bad fungus, so I imagine her feet will be bigger than mine by the end of the summer.

We’re making our annual trip to Halifax, Nova Scotia to the Buskers Festival and I will make my annual stop at my version of Disneyland – John David Shoes.  It’s 5 pair or $300… whichever comes first.  Hey, the way I look at it as that I don’t drink, I don’t smoke – I gotta spend my money on something!

I had a very exciting weekend last week; I was invited to a private residence in upstate New York to play for a private function at this beautiful resort-like place.  It was simply one of the most beautiful places I’d ever been and these people were the nicest people I’ve ever met!  It was an amazing experience, and I felt like a rock star, being flown down, driven around in a Lincoln Town car and treated like royalty.  I am a lucky, lucky girl!!

And now I’m home, on vacation with my girl and wonderful husband and on my way next week to buy more shoes.  How can it get any better??
