Did you ever read the teen novel "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants"? Anne Brasheres wrote the novel over 12 years ago. I read it because my high school students were talking about how much they enjoyed the book.
Simply, it is about 4 girlfriends, all sharing a pair of jeans while they struggle with growing up, realize the importance of friendship, travel and search for love.
As you know, I am a huge Mackenzie-Childs fan. Last month they had a sale and I was browsing their website to see if anything caught my eye - as I was certain that I NEEDED something they had on sale!
This tote bag caught my eye:
I quickly pulled out my credit card and purchased it. I HAD to have it!
Remembering how much Debbie at Mountain Breaths loves MC Courtly Checks, I quickly sent her a text. How could we ever live without this?
And then I sent an email to Sarah at Hyacinths for the Soul because I thought she needed one, too!
Shortly thereafter, the tote bag was removed from their sale web page! Lucky us!
HOW IS THIS TOTE RELATED TO "THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS"?
Debbie, Sara and I have decided to take the theme of this novel and create a series we will call:
"THE TRAVELING TOTE"
A few times a year we will each write a connected post about the places our tote bags have taken us. They might include business trips, shopping adventures, weeklong vacations or simply every day escapades!
For now, mine is sitting by the fireplace with cozy throws rolled up and tucked inside!
So, stay tuned, and in a few months we will update you on our adventures!
Oh, and if you have one of these totes, please contact me and "jump on our silly ride"!
You could purchase their replacement tote and join in on the fun:
