I spent last week in the lovely city of London with two of the most amazing women you'd want to know. While there we padded as much of the city as we could, happily playing the roles of ultimate tourists.
Like any committed tourists, we had a shopping lists. Mine was very specific. I figured this typically overcast country would be the ideal location to purchase rain gear, so I focused intently on a quest for rubbers and found success in the form of a pair of navy rubber ankle booties by Vivienne Westwood.
Since the weather was strangely glorious in London that week, I didn't have a chance to wear the booties until today, a rainy day at home in New England. While driving in my car I noticed a perfume-y smell filling the air. It took me a few minutes to realize that the scent was wafting up from my tootsies. The boots were scented! What a kick! I slowly inhaled and laughed out loud at the playfulness of scratch-n-sniff rain boots and continued to thoroughly enjoy this cheeky surprise all the way home.
Those silly boots reminded me... when the weather is stormy and the sky is opening up on your head, just take a deep breath in and be happy. In this case, quite literally.
Peace, love, gratitude,
