Today I received my first Birkin! I have other Hermes items, a few Evelynes, tons of bracelets but never did I think I would own something so beautiful and expensive as a Birkin.

I grew up in a poor, factory town, in a home where our alcoholic dad left us when we were babies and our mom was a drug addict. We had no money and never had anything nice or new. I worked my butt off, getting good grades to get out of that situation and make a better life for myself. I went to college, got a great degree, found a wonderful man and had my beautiful daughter. My husband and I work very hard for the things we have but we live comfortably. Remembering my young self, never would I have thought owing beautiful handbags would be part of my life, but here it is.

My Colvert Birkin in Swift with PHD. I'm in love. It's so beautiful. The perfect color.
