The autumn leaves have almost all fallen now and though some of the trees have lost much of their autumn beauty, for now it's a lovely sight to see all of the school kids walking ankle deep through a crispy carpet of golden leaves along the pathways, kicking them up in the air for fun as they trudge their way home.
I have always imagined it would be such a nice feeling to walk barefoot across the crunchy leaves, in a park somewhere.
The only thing that stops me is the fact that I can't see what's underneath - and of course there is the occasional dog owner who 'forgets' to pick up after their pet!
I think that it might somehow spoil my fantasy of skipping along, barefoot in a floaty dress, throwing the leaves in to the air, twirling beneath the autumn confetti, with the leaves stuck between my toes... if I should then look down to find something 'else' stuck between them too - Ugh!
So - I will just have to stick to my boots. Humph!
I do love the autumn, but I miss wearing my girly shoes! Especially these ones - my favorites...

What girl doesn't just LOVE shoes :0D
I am dedicating this 'girly' post to my sister, who has great taste in shoes and who lives with her husband and three boys and is consequently surrounded by a thick fog of testosterone!
Though my daughter flew the nest just last week, I only have two boys to contend with - one being my husband!
