There are times in my life in which I see items that I just know that I can't have. Sometimes I can see something that I love, but I'm OK walking away without it. Then there are the moments in which I walk away and feel sad. Like I'm meant to have this item and for whatever reason just can't and so there is a hole.
It's ridiculous, I'll be the first to admit it. I don't hold a ton of value in things so in these moments when I get so wrapped up in an item it bothers me. I beat myself up about it and yet at the same time...I find I can't let the item go.
I once went on a girl's shopping trip with my mom and some friends to San Francisco. At one of the very first stores we went to there was a sweater. I loved it. It was pricey. My mom was willing to get it for me, but that was going to be it for the day. Since we were just starting I passed up on the sweater. I still remember that damn thing and am sad that I didn't own it.
Yesterday I met this chair.
It didn't come home with me. We have a birthday party for my son, moving expenses and a vacation we are paying for so this chair is not in the cards for me right now.
One thing I'm certain of, I am never going to get this chair out of my head. It's going to remain one of those items I wish I bought.
