Day 351: Fashion Bait and Switch

I wouldn't ever consider myself to be a fashion forward person. I would say, however, that I do have decent taste. That's why today, when Christina asked me to help her pick out a new purse, I didn't think twice. We talked about different styles and options and set to work in the store.

Finally, the perfect purse. A medium, leather, pale pink bag with handles big enough to hold over the arm or slide over the shoulder and adorned with unique metal buttons. Perfect for any city girl looking for both practicality and style.

After a lovely afternoon with my friend, we pulled up to my house and as I stepped out of the car, she said, "Don't forget your bag!" I was confused. I didn't have a bag. "What?" I said. "You know, the purse you picked out for me. It was really for you the whole time!"

I was stunned. What a fun gift and totally unexpected! I love getting new purses and they are not something that I typically ever buy for myself. It is such an honor to have a friend that is so gracious and kind...not just to me but to my kids as well!

Christina, thank you for bringing out the city girl in me this afternoon. :) For you and my new fashionista purse, I am thankful!
