When I was around 7 years old I received as a gift a little purse, it was brown and faux leather. It had a little handle, with a little gold clasp on it. I went to a college football game with my family showing off my beautiful little purse and when I left I then realized I forgot it and only to find out someone took it. For some reason I remember that little purse, I think it was my first real one.
I went out the other day to find a new bag and found this from Kate Spade. I opted for black, a hard decision but want to wear it every day! As soon as I saw it, it reminded me of that purse I had 40 years ago and today I am proudly parading it around like I was 7.
I have a few things like that in my home from glassware to photos. I think it is so important to have great memories from our past to remind us daily all we have and should be grateful for. Don’t you?
