Sometimes, I look at my little 2 1/2 year old and think, where did my little girl go? As she sits next to me at the piano, puts her little arms around me, looks up at me and says, “We’re best friends, huh mom?” Is she really old enough to be talking, let alone using the phrase best friends!? She wants to do whatever mom is doing, stirring dinner, putting on makeup, and she loves to wear my shoes. What can I say, I’ve taught her to appreciate nice footwear, and she’ll go through my closet taking each pair out of their designated spot, walk around a bit and then grab another pair.

Right now I have big shoes to fill, but give her time and she’ll fill them more than I could’ve imagined. I just love that girl!
