Made in the Shades!

For the first twenty or so years of my life, I would have nothing to do with sunglasses. I thought they distorted my 20/20 vision and made me see the world in unnatural colors. Then I got together with my husband-to-be, and he talked UV rays and protecting my vision and all kinds of things with which I could not argue. I caved and bought my first pair.

All these years later, I am a total addict. I can't take out the trash without a pair of shades on. I even carry a back-up pair in my purse at all times...just in case!

So what's funny to me is while all my professional author photos show me sans glasses, our family vacation albums are quite the contrary. Here's one random one I found from the Roman Colliseum:



How about you? Now that we're in the dog days of summer, are sunglasses among your most trusted possessions, too?

Strangely no! I don't even own a pair.

Same here. I'm not a sunglass person either!

Mine are prescription and I'm never without them. But changing from regular to sunglasses does get a bit annoying.

I have always been this way, i have really sensitive eyes so i wear sunglasses all the time. I am also a huge fan of the obnoxiously large ones.

Wear them all the time! (it's perfect, you don't have to put eye make up on ;)) Just bought a new pair today actually!

luv your shades! :0) Yes! I used to think the "big" glasses looked funny on Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, now, all I wear is biggie-glasses! Dang! Guess I'm a sucker for fad-wear after all.
