We can start with this batch right here:
Those, my friends are just SOME of the pants I don't quite fit into right now, but firmly believe I will again, someday soon. I have a whole other plastic bin full of them, but the ones in the plastic bin are pants I haven't fit in for several years now, but keep telling myself one day I will. One day, I will get rid of them.
Then, there are my concert t-shirts. For example:
There is also this shirt, which I haven't worn since high school:
My grandma, "The Teacher" gave me this T for Christmas one year...over a decade ago at least...possibly a lot longer than that. The writing and the angels? Glow in the dark. I never wore this T-shirt once, but after my grandmother passed away, I could never bear to part with it. Just recently, however, while helping out on a youth retreat, I wore the shirt for the very first time ever. I'm so glad I never parted with it.
And then there's this dress:
I bought this dress for $7 at a consignment shop in California at least 6 years ago, possibly longer...definitely longer. I fell in love with it, I had to have it. I brought ithome, hung it up in my closet, and never had occasion to wear it. Then I gained weight, and have not been able to wear it since. In fact, the price tag is still attached. But I LOVE this dress and can't bear to part with it.
I could share so many more stories of the type, but I'll stop here.
By the way, I just realized that I wrote up an entire post about my new job the other day, and was convinced I'd posted it, but it turns out it's still sitting in my "drafts" folder. So, come on by tomorrow if you want to hear all about my new job.
HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE!
