I bought a new pair of blue jeans the other day. What I found fascinatting was how this elicited such mixed feelings on my part. I felt good because I was able to buy a new pair of jeans without having to worry about how I would pay for them. I felt disappointed because I had to buy a bigger size because, well, I have put on a few pounds again. I felt excited because I thought they would look good on me. I felt odd because I had to buy a shorter length than I used too because apparently I have shrunk a bit.
Yes, there is nothing like new pair of jeans, especially if they fit just right. And these Wranglers did. I was comfortable in them the minute I put them on. And they looked new, but not too new. I bit broken in, but not too broken in. And practical. I usually prefer Levi's Button Fly 501's, but have you priced those things lately? These Wranglers were just right for the transition I am sure I will be going through again as I watch my calorie intake (once again) and get myself under control. A new pair of jeans can do that for you.
When you think about it, why did buying a new pair of jeans inspire this blog? Lord only knows, but, truly, I find it is the little things in life that make life worth living...sometimes. A new pair of true blue jeans can do that. Yes they can.
