ere in my small corner of the universe, there's snow dusting the rooftops and icicles forming on the underpasses, but these harbingers of winter are only hinting at the change I feel in the air. I've mentioned before that I'm making room in my home for company. And that's meant a need to assess the possessions I have and decide what deserves to stay and what is simply threatening to qualify me for an episode of Hoarders. It's been a pain in the butt going through all the dead wood that one accumulates unwittingly over the years. "You bring it in bit by bit," I was just thinking to myself as I wheeled my heavily laden grocery cart into the elevator in my building, "but you carry it out by the armload!" But now as I sit and survey the results of my hard work and feel myself moving toward my future with a lighter step, I am pleased. There will be room to grow again. There will be space to make new memories. And, of course, there will be new shoes to take me there.

[On my feet as I blog: a big thank you again to regular reader Tea for encouraging me to get my own pair of Lynneas from UGG Australia. I have grown to really love them. Miu Miu, however, is indifferent.]
