I dreamed a dream...

I dreamed a dream
that I owned this purse, when money was good
 and it was worth buying.
I dreamed that it was on my shoulder
I dreamed that Macy's would have it in stock.

When I was young and unafraid
I would have purchased it without second thought.
There were no bills to be paid
no mortgage bill, no responsibility.

But the husbands come at night
with their voices soft as thunder
You don't need to buy that purse
You have 10 sitting in the closet.

And still I'll dream that it will be mine
That we will live the years (or months) together
But there are dreams that can not be
And this purse is one of them.

I had a dream this purse would be
So different than the one I'm currently carrying that is from Kohl's
So much better because it is real leather
Now budget and responsibility has killed the dream I dreamed.

My message to your husband: The pricetag is hard to swallow, but it's worth it in the end! My husband bought me an expensive bag 4 years ago, and I haven't bought a new one since. I use it EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. and it still looks pretty and (almost) perfect and has years and years of life left. It's an investment in NOT buying cheap crappy bags over and over and over again.

Plus, it's so pretty.
