My newest toy

My weakness is Levenger. I was probably in college -- which means years ago -- when I first found their site and began to receive their catalog.

"Tools for the reader," it said.

"Yes, please," I said.

In particular I fell in love with a bag called the Stanley Traveler, a beautiful tan leather briefcase that was always out of my price range. But for years I've been thinking about that bag, dreaming about it, wishing it could be mine.

This morning I saw an email about a 20% off spring sale, so I (dangerously) decided to check out the site again. They have a new version of the traveler bag that seems a little smaller, but is just as beautiful. Also, it was marked down. Applying the 20% off coupon to that total made the price almost reasonable.

So I did it; I bought it. Over ten years of want on the way to me, I can barely believe it.

Just don't tell Jer. :)

Yes, I, too, drool over Levenger.
