some updates & If The Shoe Doesn't Fit's giveaway winner

Thank you so much for your kind words, thoughts, and prayers for my family and I during this time. Yesterday in San Diego my family and I went on a boat out to sea near where my Grandpa grew up. We spread flowers in the ocean in remembrance of him. We told stories of the man, Grandpa, son, father, and friend that he was. We dodged the waves as we sat ear the bow of the ship. Many of my family members got soaked as we made our way back to shore. We honored the adventuresome spirit that my Grandpa always had. He's probably fishing in heaven right now! He just loved to fish and loved everything about the ocean, like me. There was quite a bit of swell that came in due to stormy clouds that were lurking. But just as we threw the flowers out to sea, the sun decided to show its face out of the stormy clouds. It was if my Grandpa was giving us a wink from heaven. I already miss him so so much.
Due to the fact that I'm back in sunny CA I get to spend an extra week with my BK! Even though I'm still grieving my Grandpa's death, I'm delighted that I get to spend some time in my loves' arms. Soon after I head back to Utah from California I'll be heading to Arizona to house sit for my aunt and uncle. I'm such a busy traveler I hardly know where I live anymore, ha ha! :)
So I'm going to announce the winner of If The Shoe Doesn't Fit's Collector Shoe Giveaway. I input all of the names on Random.com and the winner is:
Congratulations Krysten!
To celebrate let's check out some Christian Louboutin shoes that are currently up for grabs at the If The Shoe Doesn't Fit's website right now! :)
If these shoe auctions have expired by the time you see this post you can always go to the search bar on the ITSDF's website in the upper left hand corner and type in Christian Louboutin or whatever designer shoe is your favorite. Hopefully the seller will have some new listings up! :)

Sigh. I just love shoe therapy, especially the turquoise Christian Louboutin pumps!! I hope you are all having an amazing start to your week.
