That new saddle shoes and new lunch box feeling.
Didn’t think I’d ever have that again.
I’m pretty sure there are a few who can relate.
To the saddle shoes anyway.
New saddle shoes for a new day and a new adventure.
Even now, 40 years later I still get swept up in the new school year excitement – maybe why it’s my favorite time of year.I can certainly understand such excitement with a new job, Congrats! You’ll do well.
Thank you Paul.
I hope you are feeling better.
I know that excitement! Good luck, and happy new saddle shoes day! It’s not everyday you get to experience that feeling 🙂
Thank you! 🙂 It was fun!
Good luck…the excitement is palpable and infectious 🙂
Awwww, thank you Aishwarya! 🙂
I remember that feeling! I just read that you have a new job? Congratulations! I didn’t realize you had a new job. I knew you were leaving your old job.
I do! And thank you. Yes, leaving the old for the new. Very excited!!!
Best wishes for your new venture. And yes, new Buster Browns, every year, and praying we didn’t outgrow them too soon. How I loved the start of the school year…it was home. ☺ I still can’t pass by those marble notebooks without a huge smile.
Oh the marble note books! 🙂
But the shoes, for some reason, those symbolize excitement of something new. It may seem silly….but hey. 😉
and get those shoes polished and enjoy your new adventure!
😀 I am Beth )
Saddle shoes, penny loafers and new pencil crayons..those are a few of my favorite things…continue singing as you skip off on your new adventure. I’m on the road to Nova Scotia, me and Rizzo. Have fun!
Safe travels MW51!!!! 🙂
Yes, I can relate. A few years ago I bought myself a pair but at my age they just don’t look the same. 😉
Did you wear anklets or knee highs with them? 🙂
Oh yeah, the came back into fashion for a while in the early 80’s and I had a pair. One of the saving graces of going back to school was wearing all the new clothes I got. Yep, that was about it!
Yeah…..that was the good part. 🙂
Loved my saddle shoes…this post really takes me back!!
🙂 They were key to getting the year started right.
Oh I remember the new saddle shoes well. With two older sisters it was almost the only new thing I got. Memories are great.
Good Luck, starting with a smile in your heart is great. :o)
I was the oldest girl so any hand me downs were from the boys. But we all got new shoes and new school clothes. 🙂 But this could also be why I love men’s clothing more than womens!!!!
🙂 It was!
Oh, not sure if anyone else said this and nearly out of time so I will say, what about penny loafers? Anyone love the new feel of the tan or brown shoes where the penny can be inserted in that little creases?
I had only one pair of saddle shoes, they were cool, Colleen! I wore them to a “Sock Hop!” 🙂
I don’t know if I’ve ever had a pair of penny loafers Robin!! 🙂
