A Luxury

On Monday, just a few hours before we got our unattractive news - I purchased this bag at our local Hallmark store. For years I've passed by the Vera Bradley collection and admired the beautiful bags. I would fantasize about carrying one to hold all of my baby stuff. I never thought I would be able to make that dream a reality. After we decided to adopt, I would smile when I would drive by and see them in the window. Oh, how nice it would be to have a pink or blue vera in my babyroom. The day after we were matched I went into the store and tried one on my shoulder. Once we knew that peanut was a girl, I started trying to save some money so that I could get one. But, on Sunday afternoon I went into my stash and only counted $23. Not even half the price. Our finances have been so crazy that I have been taking out more than putting in. On Monday morning I decided that I had waited long enough. I was going to go get my dream diaper bag. I would just have to figure something out in our account. So, I went in determined to keep my budget under $100 (and I did) and I wasn't leaving without one. I left with the one pictured above. It is lovely! I was still out running errands when I got the call from N. When I got home I placed the bag in our babyroom just as I had envisioned, and shut the door on the room. Now I'm wondering if I'm going to have to return it. No doubt we could use the money. I'm not ready to part with it yet though. I think that it is the hope that I'm holding onto.
