As part of my reward to myself for surviving this past weekend, I picked up these Anglomania Victoria Sandals. They’re from the new Anglomania shoe line, which is manufactured in China and retails at a much more affordable cost. I picked these up for $166 + tax on Amazon.com (I’m not affiliated with Amazon, just linking my purchase source). The interesting thing that surprised me with these shoes, is they come in new blue boxes, and a white dustbag. It was rather fun being surprised with a new shoe box style.
I’ve dubbed these my Victory shoes. After 2 years of constant health complications, this weekend was my first trip away from home. It was the first time I was able to drive for 3 hours in Southern California traffic on the freeways since December 2010. The fact that I was able to survive the trip with nothing more than intense muscle soreness and a day of exhaustion flu when I finally got back home, tells me that I really truly am almost back to normal. In fact, a few days before the trip, I start returning to work part time. I’m not sure if this is all thanks to the gluten free diet, or thanks to the mega vitamin d supplement prescription I’ve been taking, but either way I’m really happy to know that something is working. Finally. A bit of relief.
