There is this really great mall in Charlotte. Jason and I used to “visit” it for date night when we lived up there. I say visit because it was way too pricey to really shop. We would walk past Tiffany’s, Kate Spade, Tommy Bahama and we would dream. I just knew one day I wouldn’t feel so in awe of these stores. I for one don’t think it’s crazy to spend hundreds of dollars on a purse or a pair of shoes.
I’ve been thinking about that mall a lot over the last couple days, wishing we were in a different place with money. I don’t want to sound ungrateful because all the really important dreams are coming true. (Being a stay at home mom is the biggest one.) Sometimes it’s hard to stay on the path we know is best for us. I wish we could go out and finance a car and a house full of furniture. We could make the payments, but I know that’s not the best choice. We want to have a future that is secure. Retirement and college funds. But still, sometimes all these good choices just sound like blah, blah, blah.
|OK so I wouldn’t spend hundreds on this one. $328!|
