A pair of boots. A pair of magic boots.
It was a girls’ weekend. My mother, me, and my daughter. She was turning one. So of course we went shopping. Shoe shopping.
I was trying on boots. My mother offered to buy me a pair. Actually two pairs. Winning!
My daughter stood up, held onto the chair, and then took a few steps. Then a few more steps. She was walking across the room! She learned to walk. In the shoe department at Nordstrom. It was like the perfect ad.
What a weekend filled with milestones, memories, and magic.
Eleven years later, I still have those boots. And now my daughter wears them. Those same, magic boots.
