MOI CANCER-FREE MOM COACH-ES GABRIELA!
So, Coach has provided me with go-to bags over the years. I think it’s because my acquisition of my first Coach bag symbolized my then new adult independence. Plus, my first Coach bag was a black leather bag that kept getting tattered and all I had to do was send it to a Coach factory in New Jersey and they were always happy to repair it for free—I still have it today. Anyway, got a new Coach bag today and here is Gabriela trying it on:
Said bag was part of a retail celebration Mom and I embarked on this afternoon to celebrate this morning’s news: she’s now FREE OF CANCER! Wooooot! Promptly therewith, Mom decided to attempt to heal the economy with several purchases including my newest daily Coach!
But Mom didn’t just buy bags…or shoes….a watch for Michael…and various other sundries—she also purchased some poetry books for me … Which is to say, this of course was just a way to provide another update to my Recently Bought Poetry List, to wit:
