A few days ago I read a quote that really stuck with me: “It isn’t the mountain ahead that wears you down; it’s the grain of sand in your shoe”. I found myself thinking about that quote as I was unlocking the door. I looked down at my ancient carabiner keyring and realized it isn’t the lack of Hermes Birkin bag that bugs me (although someday that would be nice!), it’s using this ratty old keyring that makes me feel like I’m still a poor college student coming home to a dorm room. My very own pebble of bother.
As you can see from this little black and gold wish list, I really am craving something much more glamourous. The Penthouse key fob would definitely make me feel like a proper grownup (even if the door it unlocks doesn’t lead to a penthouse quite yet).
