Especially Black. Black most of all! Yes…by now you’ve all figured out that I am talking about my #1 obsession. SHOES!!! I love shoes. Shoes complete me. Oh…alright, that’s an exaggeration, but they do complete the outfit! They say “Dress for success”, “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have”, “Shoes make the woman”, “Two things you can never have too many of: Good friends and Good shoes”. Then of course, my 2 favourites: “If the shoe fits, buy it in every colour” and “Cinderella is proof that a pair of shoes can change your life”!!! Indeed, shoes have been known to help fix broken hearts and to lift the most downtrodden of spirits. They also say “Charity begins at home” which is why I recently parted with 23 (Yes, 23!!!) pairs of shoes. Hopefully by now, they have found a nice new home. And on the bright side, it makes that much more room in my closet for all of this season’s newcomers! And speaking of charity, I want to send out a reminder to all – Saturday May 1st is the Moms & Tots Garage Sale Fundraiser in Oak Park. This fundraiser has grown over the years into a fun-filled event with lots of deals to be had, yummy baking available and, best of all, horse-drawn carriage rides through the ‘hood (sponsored by yours truly) for all the little ones. Just look for me, I’ll be there all morning. (And let’s hope for great weather – so that I can debut a pair of my new shoes!!)
I have supported Moms & Tots for a number of years and it continues to be one of my favourite local charities. I love that it embraces young families new to the area and provides local young mothers with a great support system, fantastic classes and amazing programs. See you there May 1st – and if you can’t make it, be sure to check out my May Oak Park Report video, ‘cause my camera will be there too and we’ll capture it all. And in the meantime, be sure to check my websites or YouTube channel for my monthly report, “The State of Real Estate in Oakville”. You can look forward to this video being broadcast monthly – it’s aim is to make it easy to gain a good understanding of the Oakville Real Estate market, it’s statistics and it’s trends. I hope you’ll tune in and watch. See you at the Fundraiser!!
