Sweet Everythings


I'm going to be sweet and sappy today...doesn't happen often.  Here goes.  My husband and I have been married for two years but together 12 1/2 years.  We, also, work at the same law firm.  Because we have been together for so long and spend a lot of time together, it takes a lot to surprise one another.  Last week, my husband came along to one of my hearings that was out of town.  The hearing took the whole day and I was exhausted.  On the drive back home, he says to me that he didn't know what kind of mood I would be in and then he hands me his Iphone.  Confused, I turn his screen on and see a shopbop invoice for this lovely Rebecca Minkoff bag!

I've been drooling over this bag for so long and seeing it on the oh so stylish Noelle of Beautygirl24 in this gray color solidified that I really wanted this bag.  I over think every purchase I make but my husband is impulsive.  This time, it worked in my favor because I am so in love with this bag!  It's the perfect size, color, and so versatile (straps are changeable).  What I love most about it, is that my husband bought it for me and after all this time together, he can still surprise me :-)

  1. Awww, you have me teary eyed Maria! How sweet of him to surprise you! The bag looks great on you, it really is so versatile. I love the way your camera captures the color. My little rinky dink camera definitely doesn't do it justice! You look perfect :)

  19. Hmm....I tried to leave a comment earlier from work (whoops!) but it seems it didn't go through. What it said was that that was super sweet of your husband and what a great bag to add to your collection. So did you guys wait until you were both done with law school to get married?
