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.
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.
