Once upon a time the Classroom Mom of Elisabeth's Kindergarten class hosted a bag party at her house. As anyone who knows me will tell you, I'm not a big bag person but this mom had done a wonderful job for the kindergarten class. Also proceeds from the party would be going to support the Art program at our daughters' school so I went.
There were tons of bags of many types, colors, and sizes. I'm a big fan of the purse/wallet combination and was even more so back then when I was often carrying a diaper bag and so I was thrilled to find some there. In particular one that seemed to have right amount of space and that space was organized with the type of compartments and card slots I liked. And at a decent price, bonus!! There was just one problem it was yellow. I don't like yellow. On my kids, maybe. For flowers, curtains, and summer squash, definitely! But as the expression goes yellow is not in my color wheel for clothes and so even as an accessory I was struggling.
Being the wonderful hostess she is; my friend had seen me pick-up the purse, put it down, walk away and circle back. So on one of my circling backs she struck up a conversation and upon hearing my concern said the most brilliant thing. "What a great color for summer; and come the fall you can change if the color is still bothering you."
Needless to say it was fine; more than fine even with me receiving many a compliment on my bold choice and beautiful purse. So it was with a sad heart (as the strap broke for the third time) I had to admit early this week that after three years of consistent use my lovely yellow purse was beyond repair and it was time to start looking for its replacement.
