I am so much happier going barefoot! Even in the winter... and I have hardwood floors. I have always been that way. Growing up, my grandparents had a huge apple orchard next to our house. Feet can sure toughen up when you run barefoot all summer! I don't know how many times I stepped on bees and never even felt the sting! That might not be such a good thing!
I now treat myself to pedicures at least once every few weeks during the summer. That is just a little bit of heaven! :0)
