Our middle girl loves the phrase "weird is rad."
She loves floral patterns of any kind and the color turquoise.
She loves to be different and stand out.
So when I was Pinning a few months ago, I spotted a pair of floral Doc Marten combat boots that screamed at me.
When Bryon and I were shopping before Allie's funeral, we saw a pair just sitting there, all in her size in everything.
She screamed when she opened the box. Then she sent me a picture the next morning while she got ready for school at mom's.
I understand the lure. I absolutely did have a pair of Docs in high school: all black, 8 eyelet, with the yellow stitching.
Combat boots are rad, man.
