Different Summer, Different Sandals

Last summer I was all about my Okabashis, and my favorite comment was by alert reader, Tammy, who told the best story in the world about looking at Okabashis one day at the drugstore, so I encourage you to read it because it was totally the "ut."

This year, I splurged on a pair of Birkenstocks, because it is the 7th initiation rite in belonging to Gainesville.  My son, DJ (short for "Dude Junior"), because he is growing like a sprout, started wearing them when I wasn't looking, and I went for hours in sadness because I did not have my Birkies.  Anyhow, I finally broke down and bought him a pair of his own and in retrospect I should have gotten him a pair in my size because he still steals mine.  What's it going to be like when he's in high school?!

Here is a link to last year's post about the Okabashis (similar photo!) - I'm waiting for him to realize that wearing the same sandals as your moms is uncool.  Maybe it isn't anymore?
