One such obsession was diaper bags. It's a bit odd, really, as I was never a bag person before I had kids. Seriously, I've carried some version of a backpack my entire adult life. But once I had a kid, I became enamored of the idea that there might be that one fantastic bag that would make my life easier! Once I had two kids under the age of 2, well, I needed some sort of hope that something would make it easier. :) Then someone turned me onto the baby bags group on Yahoo, and I'm a bit embarrassed to say how many lovely bags have made their way into my home.
Now, my youngest is headed towards 3 (HOW DID THAT HAPPEN) and, coincidentally, seems to be potty training herself, so my need for a diaper bag has faded. But now I'm rehooked on photography and have been looking at camera bags. They're all...ugly. Or if not ugly, then fancy girly high-end purse looking, which also is sooo not me. And most of them, to me anyway, seem to scream "Hey! I have a really expensive camera in here!" It occurred to me that I have many lovely bags which could work for putting things in. The fact that I have many lovely bags didn't stop me from dropping the rest of my birthday/Christmas money on another gorgeous bag, but more importantly, I found a camera insert that I really hope will work well! Sadly, it's shipping from South Korea (we'll see if it ever gets here, I suppose), so it won't be here until March, but hopefully it will be here in time for April vacation and our planned odyssey to visit the cousins in Philly and Starry Night at MOMA in NYC. I'll let you all know how it works!
