Soft Surroundings Shoes and Beautiful Granddaughter

When I dressed for this important day, I knew I wanted to look and feel my best; be comfortable; and know it might be a long haul.  So I wore my new Remy Sneakers from Soft Surroundings...such gorgeous, casual fun...with the look and craftsmanship of real leather.
Arriving at the hospital early, I was excited to welcome my new granddaughter into the world.  

I just had no idea this day would span endlessly over the next 15 hours....

I started off with some like reading as my daughter-in-law was induced.

She was over a week past due and as the baby grew, the doctors knew it was going to be a challenge for her tiny frame.

So, we took selfies...told stories...watched a little TV...and went to eat.

I drank enough water to float a boat!

At 1:30 AM, my husband and I were alone in the hospital.  It was so quiet, it was unnerving.  But, in my sneakers, I still looked great though I could barely hold up my head.  They have some wonderful shoes and boots right now...and if you go for these sneakers...go up a size...they do run small.

But, it was so worth the wait for this little angel to arrive....
I have three incredible grandchildren...and she is the first little girl.  She was worth every second of a very long day...

I hope you will join us Sunday for Hit Your Style Sweet Spot...and a new Sweet Spot Fashion Link Up which started last week with great success.

Have a lovely weekend!
