I fiigured it all out today, on a deep, emotional, rather sweet level, if i do say so myself ....was looking for a baby doll for a close girlfriend's 5 year old daughter's birthday. So, I am looking at the most adorable baby dolls today ....and i start picking them up and cuddling them like a human baby. It was then that I realized, this is the same way I feel about my purse family. It brought me back to childhood and hugging my dolls, as well as carrying them around all day, and feeling so proud of my doll family. The similarities are so there.... Purses are dolls for me and in adulthood, i get to play with them and carry them proudly again!
