Happy Friday everyone and Happy July 1st! I find it hard to believe as the months keep rolling by. My birthday and Gibby's birthday is coming up next week, so expect a blog post on that.Let's talk about shoes.

There used to be a time where "comfortable shoes" meant "ugly" or just not very stylish, but brands have come around knowing there is a market out there for beautiful, stylish and comfortable/supportive shoes. Here are some of my summer staples
