Black patent leather shoes? Had them when I was a kid.You descibed them so well, that I can actually see them and if any stores were open today, I'd go buy a pair! Good write! Shoes DO make the outfit- just ask my kid (we could have bought a new house with the money we spent on her sneakers!

Sweet reminders of my own childhood Easters Kristina. New clothes, family, church...

You have so faithfully given us a part of your childhood here. It is a great picture and the talking says so much.

Oh those shiny black mary-janes (I always wanted the white ones for Easter, but my mother thought they were "trashy") . Thanks for this sweet walk down memory lane...and remember the straw Easter hats?!

My daughter used to sleep in her "tap" shoes when she was little! Nice write here! MFS

Hmmm warmly nostalgic. Takes me back to the Easters of my youth when my sisters would get their new patent leather shoes along with dresses my mother made for them.

Smiling broadly - enjoying and basking in the moments of the little girl discovering a whole new world attached to little feet. I love the sounds and rhythm in the second verse. :-))
