I decided to think about this though. It, again, was a large sum of money. I ran it by my mom, and by Mike. Both said it was an Erica purse.
But in the end, Mike and I run the finances together, and he said no. I huffed, but understood, took a nap in my car on my lunch break, and returned to a message from Mike.
He said something like, “Next month, when we get married, we both lose some of our selfishness. And next year, when the babies happen, we lose even more of our ability to do things for ourselves. So I think you should have the purse. Because, really, you deserve it.”
He gives me new reasons every day for marrying him. 🙂
