Holiday Toes

I’m funny about my feet. I got it into my head at some point during the last 40 years that I shouldn’t inflict my bare feet on anyone unless my toes were properly groomed. I know many people who have never had a pedicure and loathe anyone touching their feet. I’m not one of them.

I love having someone rub lotion into my feet and paint my nails but it’s an expense that falls into  the unnecessary and extravagant category so I only do it a few times a year. One annual pedicure I never miss is pre-Thanksgiving. Because we travel to and stay with my husbands brother and his wife I feel obligated (and justified) in having my holiday pedicure since they will be viewing my feet for four days.

Getting my holiday toes done is an excellent start to an excellent holiday. We all look forward to the annual trip and leisurely visit that includes enough time to catch up, reconnect and enjoy each others company. As holidays go its just about perfect. No gifts. No religious obligation. No singing. Just food & friends (who are family). Can’t get much better than that.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
