The weather was gorgeous last Sunday, so I called Emily and asked if she wanted to go for a walk in the woods with me. When I arrived to pick her up, she came downstairs in a pink blouse, a long, flowing skirt and platform flip flops with pink sequin straps.
Not really the look I was expecting.
I've known Emily for her entire life, and if there's one thing I've learned about her over the last sixteen years it is that if she has her mind set on something, NO ONE CAN CHANGE IT.
And on Sunday she had her mind set on that skirt and those flip flops.
And so I set off with my spiffy sidekick. About ten minutes down the trail we started to walk down a slight incline. And Emily started to regret her choice of footwear.
It was a little dicey there for a few minutes but Em and her flip flops made it safely to the bottom of the hill.
Turns out Emily was breaking every rule but number one.
But at least she looked like a movie star doing it.
