I'm organizing and cleaning out my closet in preparation for my big move to Utah in a few weeks.
I was going through my clothes and trying to get rid of a lot of the ones I haven't worn in awhile.
I have a confession.
I have a pair of American Eagle jeans that I can't seem to throw away. They are old, stained, full of holes, but they have always been my favorite pair of jeans...ever purchased.
I know it seems so silly to hold onto something like that, but I have tried a handful of times to throw them in the trash and I just can't do it.
I remember the day I bought those jeans. It was my very first pair of AE jeans and I saved up for them (50 bucks for a pair of jeans was a lot to me). I remember how good I felt in them. I remember how bummed I was when I got paint on them right under my left knee. I was wearing them when I had my very first kiss @ 16.
Isn't it crazy how many memories can be tied into a single article of clothing??
Maybe its just me.
I should make something out of them. Maybe a beach bag or something..? I don't know, but there they sit and with me they will stay.
