Winter Miracle: Patty Jones

What about you would surprise people?

I am a mom of two children, ages 15 and 11, and I am of Italian descent, both of my parents are from Italy. But, both children have blond hair and blue eyes, and people are shocked that they are mine – they look exactly like their dad! Between taking care of the kids, working full time and caring for our cat and dog, it surprises me sometimes that I am able to get it all done!

In this “Season of Miracles,” please tell us about a personal miracle in your life.

I am originally from upstate New York and very skilled at driving in the snow. But, one Christmas Eve I was driving alone and hit black ice. When you hit ice like this, there is not much you can do – braking actually makes it worse. I spun around and around and ended up on the other side of the highway, facing in the wrong direction. Miraculously, I was not hurt and no other cars were involved. I know an angel was watching over me and kept me safe that evening.

If you celebrate Christmas, who puts up the tree?

My husband puts up the tree, and we all decorate together. Through the years, the children have collected their own special ornaments with their names on them that they like to put on the tree. When it’s all decorated the cat usually tries to jump in the tree and tear it down!

What is your favorite holiday activity?

Most definitely Nights of a Thousand Candles in Brookgreen Gardens. We always go as a family and it’s a magical time. The gardens are so beautiful with all of the lights, and even though we go every year, I never get tired of it.

What are the “hottest” shoes for winter? How can Centro Shoes help you look your best this holiday season?
