Boot love

Before I start my boot post, I have to say a few words. I have a heavy heart this morning. Now that I'm a mom my worst fear isn't that something bad could happen to me...it's that something bad might happen to my baby. All weekend I couldn't stop thinking about the events at Sandy Hook Elementary. I can't imagine dropping Hudson off at school and never seeing him again. When I was giving him a bath Friday evening, I couldn't stop crying for all the moms and dads who didn't get to give their little ones a bath that night. Or read them a bedtime story. Or rock them to sleep. I spent the weekend giving Hudson extra snuggles and thanking God for the opportunity to be his mommy. My heart aches for the moms and dads that are dealing with the loss of their precious son or daughter.

Hug your little ones extra tight...and remember what Christmas is all about. Take joy in the little things this season.

Is it possible to be in love with a pair of boots?

 I hope so....because I think I'm in love with my new Sorel boots from Onlineshoes.com 

They are the Sorel Slimpack boots and lets just say this....holy cow are these guys comfy...and cute!

 When OnlineShoes contacted me to do a review of my choice of Women's Sorel boots I couldn't wait to try them out! I've always wanted a pair of Sorels....and these seemed like the perfect blend of riding boot meets winter boot. I really like the simple style and that they are different from the typical Sorel boot.

 I've worn them several times and they just get more comfortable each time. I've been waiting to try them out in the snow but we haven't really had any yet! But I can say that they are great in wet weather. I wore them when we went to pick out our Christmas tree and they kept me cozy and dry!

My favorite part is the back....love the little details that make these boots stand out. OnlineShoes was super easy to work with and my boots arrived so quickly! It was like Christmas morning when the box arrived!

Right now until December 28th OnlineShoes is hosting a blogger style contest! Click HERE to check out how four bloggers styled a gorgeous pair of Sorel boots and make sure to vote for your favorite! And the best part is that when you vote you are automatically entered in for a chance to win your own pair of Sorels!
