Holiday family drama is never a pleasant subject matter any time of the year.  Maybe your family members don’t present like the Griswold’s from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation or the Bailey’s from It’s A Wonderful Life.  However,  I believe all families have some level of dysfunction.  The question is how do you deal with it?

It’s been a moment since I’ve reminisced about childhood fashions.  Let’s go down Memory Lane. Some of you may remember Nancy Sinatra’s song, “These Boots Are Made For Walkin?,”  that debuted in 1966.  At that time, go-go boots were the thing to have.  Fast-forward to this post: I’m talking shoe fashion.
