The Best Birthday Gifts

I have noticed that as I get older, I appreciate more practical gifts. Last year, my mom bought me an awesome birthday gift. It wasn't tickets to a UCONN basketball game (which is all I really wanted as a kid). No, it was a pair of black Die Hard Oxford shoes (shown above).

The shoes are waterproof. On the sole it says they are also oil-proof, though I have never had to test that. I have used them quite a bit on snowy, cold days.

Happy birthday to anyone born on this day. It's a great day to have a birthday. I wish you all very warm, dry feet.
