A Girl and Her First Louboutins




Ever take the moment to think about the special gifts you’ve received in your life that left a lasting impression? A recent surprise birthday gift has had me thinking about those special first gifts. My first Barbie, bike with training wheels, make-up set, and of course, heels are just a few of those gifts that invoke cherished memories of my childhood. My recent surprise birthday gift will be forever ranked as one of those adored first gifts. A pair of Christian Louboutin! I’m not in a place in my life where I can enjoy that kind of luxury so this day will be permanently etched in my memory. Why is it so special? Well, I found out that my husband and family united to research all they could about Christian Louboutin and save their hard earned money just to buy me shoes! And now, these will always be more than a pair of shoes for me. Imagine my poor family calling and visiting Christian Louboutin vendors all over the state! They never gave up, they never judged, and they never thought it would be a silly purchase. All they wanted was to put a smile on my face and it was definitely accomplished. I will always remember this day as the day that my family put aside all reason and splurged just for me, just to get me my very first Louboutin.

Honestly, I hesitated posting this video because I reacted so dorky and silly. But it really shows how I felt that day. I can write about it but nothing captures the moment like a video! Plus, it gives you a glimpse of who I am.  After all, you read my blog (I love you for that)! I apologize for all the background noise. This was not a planned video!

What surprise gifts have left a lasting memory in your life?
