Puppies!

My cousin's German Shepherd had puppies! If you're in western Canada (or if you're willing to travel really far for a dog!) and want one, let me know. They're pure bred, very friendly and their dad's a police dog.


They're 4 weeks old now, so they'll be ready to take home in 2 weeks. They really like licking feet!



They love being petted.



They even love it when you pet them with your toes!



Yum, filthy feet from walking around on the farm.



We went down to the family farm for a few days while finishing the last details for my wedding next month.



Recently, though, a little glitch came up in the plans. I sprained my ankle pretty badly last weekend and it won't be healed for at least 4 weeks.



I can't have this ugly brace in my wedding pictures!



Good thing my dress is long enough to cover it!

Enjoy the pics of the adorable puppies and my cute bare feet!

Wedding dress!






I had the final fitting for my wedding dress today! The countdown is now at 29 days!

It fits me absolutely perfectly! I love it! I'm so so so excited to wear it on the big day!



This is my favorite thing about bridal shops - they require everyone to be barefoot, just like me!



Bye bye bridal shop! Thanks Beautiful Bride in Calgary for all your help in selecting the dress I'm going to wear on the most important day of my life.

Pepper! The cutest bunny ever

My fiance and I recently got a pet bunny. We named her Pepper.



Isn't she just the cutest thing you have ever seen? And she's just so fluffy I could die!



In honor of Father's Day, my fiance and I went to visit my parents and we brought Pepper with us. While we were eating, she played in the backyard. As soon as we were done, we went outside and played with her.









I sure love that little bunny!

Old Blog

Many of my previous adventure can be found here

A brief history of my adventures

I'm starting this blog after approximately 20 years of living a barefoot life. I'm running the risk of being non sequiter here, but I feel like it is unfair to start this blog without some form of background information. Here's a few pictures from the past year of my barefoot life.



June 2010 - Camping with my cousins along Lee Creek



July 2010 - Showing off my Canadian pride



August 2010 - Gleefully ditching my heels after a "shoes required" business event



September 2010 - Outdoor pillow fight with my cousins



October 2010 - Celebrating after landing my dream job, meaning leaving the small town where I was born and moving to the big city



November 2010 - Making cookies for my boyfriend (now my fiance)



December 2010 - Getting ready for Christmas



January 2011 - I went to a Steve Erkle themed dance party



February 2011 - I got engaged!

For some reason, I don't have any of my pictures from March through now on my laptop, which means it's on my fiance's laptop. More pics will come later, I promise!

Hello and welcome!

My name is Sierra and I don't wear shoes. That's just a very basic summary of one aspect of my life. This blog explores that aspect and how it comes in to play with other aspects of my life. You will see my barefoot adventures in this blog, for that is exactly what my life is: an adventure.

I barefoot for the sheer pleasure of the sensation. All babies are born without shoes and their parents teach them to wear shoes as they get older. My parents taught me the dangers of going barefoot but allowed me to go barefoot when camping or playing outside as long as I was careful.

Of course I've had injuries as a result. It's going to happen no matter how careful I am. I stepped on more nails than I could count when I was a kid and I got a pretty bad tetanus infection when I was 13. I've had glass, barbed wire, and sticks slice my feet open and I do get a little frost nip in the winters. But in 20 years, I have only had to have medical attention as a result of barefooting twice: once for the tetanus and once to have glass removed from my foot. Both taught me to be more careful. I now stay up to date on my tetanus shots. None of my injuries have made me any less passionate about my barefoot lifestyle.

I encourage everyone to try going barefoot, even if it's just for a few minutes within the privacy of your bedroom. And when you see a barefooter, smile and wave. Free soles, free minds.
