Before Amazing Boyfriend was diagnosed with cancer and we moved back to our hometown, I was a shoe salesperson for a large department store in Eugene, OR. When I tell most people about it, their first response is that they could never work in a commission sales area because the competition is too intense. I guess I was lucky because I worked with some amazing people that kept the drama down to a minimum (at least as minimal as you can get when you throw 7 girls together and expect them all to play nice.)
One of the awesome girls that I worked with the most is Holly Tree. (No, really, that is her real name.) Holly and I had some awesome traditions, such as Margarita Fridays. We also had some great sayings. My favorite has to be: Life is short...buy the shoes. This saying has been the reason that Holly and I both have awesome shoe collections.
For Holly's birthday (and because I miss her so much), I wanted to make her a birthday present. What better then to make something with one of our favorite sayings on it!
