Hewwo.
My name is Heather and I have worn glasses since the 4th grade.  
Before getting glasses, I was one of those dorks who secretly wanted to wear glasses.  And, while I am confessing, I always wanted a cast.  Not so much on the broken bone, just the cast.  I had one in 8the grade, and it itched.  
Itched real bad. 
And I was to poor to get a colored cast.  So I had a white cast.  But with my creative skrillz, I just pretended it was on purpose so I could have everyone sign with colored sharpies.  Problem solved. 
Anyways.  
Back to the glasses.
I was excited to wear glasses for the first week I had them.  Of course I was.  I was 9 years old.  After the “new” wore off of my glasses wearing, I realized how much of a hassle they were.  Especially after I became aware of the opposite sex.  What makes a prepubescent girl even more awkward: foggy, smudged glasses, perched on the tip of her nose.  Ew.
(poor 6th grade me)
Well, once I was deemed mature enough to wear contacts by the parentals, I slapped those babies in and never looked back at the old dusty frames.  I love contacts.  I prefer them to glasses any and every day of the week, month or year.  Every. Day. I wear contacts.  I do religiously take them out every night.  
Anywho.  I have been ‘eyeing’ some frames for oh… 2 YEARS!  And remember in this post, I confess I do not like pulling the trigger on new fashion. I like others to do it for me.  So.  For Christmas this year, my wonderful, very trendy husband bought me a pair of Warby Parker glasses from our very favorite store, Shop Good. 
Warby Parker is trendy, cheap eye wear that follows the buy a pair, give a pair business model. 
I did pick out the style.  The husbando just gave me a gift card to the website.  
Smart man I married.  Love him.  
And for the first time in 20 years.  
I love my glasses.

    I love your glasses Heather! I too wanted to wear glasses in the 1st grade! And trust me, they were not cool then at all. I didn’t even realize it until I was in about Jr. High. Thank goodness for contacts, huh? Mia and I just got new glasses too!!!!
