Don’t Put On Your High Heels Baby!

posted by Linda Mintle

Ahhh,,, beautiful Carmel-by-the-Sea in California. Home of the well know Pebbles Beach Golf Club. City that boasts Clint Eastwood as its former mayor. Vistas that take your breath away and something else….

“Put on your high heels baby, cause we are going out tonight” is not a song that applies to those living and visiting in Carmel! Carmel has an historic law that has never been banned that makes it illegal to wear high heels!

Who knew? Thankfully, I wore flip flops last time I was in Carmel. Imagine me telling my teens that mom was arrested for wearing high heels. They would say, “That sounds a little sketch!”

The good news for all you law breaking tourists and citizens of Carmel–apparently the law isn’t enforced. In fact, you can purchase a commemorative permit that allows you to wear the shoes.

Now that I know this, I just want to go so I can purchase the permit and strut my stilettos.

Forget the speeding tickets to raise revenue! Legislators, make a law regarding wardrobe malfunction. It’s much more fun!

Waiting: The Trying of Patience
Flying is no picnic these days. I dreaded the two-stop flight I recently took and for good reason. I was delayed on each leg. Fortunately, I had long lay overs and didn't miss connections, but several people on my flights did and found themselves waiting in airports for hours. What should have been

Loving Your Body, Imperfections and All!
Is it so difficult to accept the bodies we’ve been given, to celebrate them as uniquely designed by God and created in His image? Apparently. Loving, even liking, your body is a rare thing in today’s culture. It seems we all belong to the sisterhood of the dissatisfied traveling pants! If we

What Type of Decision Maker are You?
Last week, I was going out of town for the weekend. I spent hours going over my wardrobe choices. What if it rains, gets cold, I want something more formal, etc.? My husband opened his suitcase, threw in a few outfits and was done with it. No looking back, waffling or hanging in the air with poss
