As I browse my Pinterest boards, I can't help but notice my affinity for leather sofas. Long before Pinterest, there was Better Homes and Gardens, and I would dutifully peruse my mom's old issues of the magazine when I was in high school and junior high. I distinctly remember seeing an advertisement boasting the Hemingway Collection and vowing that I would one day have that sofa in my home. I have a bit of a sentimental connection to Ernest Hemingway, since the first "adult" book I read was The Old Man and the Sea, and I played Hemingway in a play for Odyssey of the Mind when I was in third grade. (And if my photos weren't all packed up, I would totally put one up here, because let me tell you, my Hemingway was spot on.)
As I approach 30, I'm trying to practice a little more self-restraint and save up money for more long-term pieces, and I feel like a leather sofa would be a good place to start, and while it will probably be several months, possibly years before I have the funds, I can always browse and keep dreaming.
