Charm bracelets aren't usually my style. But while wandering around Eastern Market with Abbie earlier this month, I just happened to pick this one up. Then I realized that the clasp is engraved with "I love travel." (I know, it's hard to tell in the photo, promise, it's there.)
It went something like this:
Me: Abbie! It says I love travel.
Abbie: That's perfect for you.
Me: And it has a compass bead, and a camera and the Eiffel Tower and a shamrock...(at this point, I'm starting to run out of breath since I'm reacting much like I did when, as a kid, I met Belle at Disney).
Abbie: You have to have it.
Me: It's $12.
Abbie: Get it.
Turns out, it was only $8.
More of me acting 5.
Abbie: You're getting it.
And, that's the story of my latest jewelry acquisition. I love it.
