Pass the cream please

A few years ago I bought a linen couch.  It’s semi-wonderful, almost beautiful, not quite what I was dreaming of, but appealed to a friends advice on the reality of living with a two year old at the time. It’s darker than I had wanted intentionally avoiding the residue of little fingers, sippy cup spills, and sneaker prints.  The wisdom of that decision arises as I seemingly clean the darker taupe linen several times a year mumbling threats of microfiber to save my sanity.  However I still am envious when I see beautiful cream colored upholstery.  At what period in life is owning such beautiful pieces appropriate for every day living?  Yes, I’m still dreaming of the couch I didn’t buy.  The sweet and sour practicality of life decisions.

What bittersweet decisions have you made that were regrettable?  The ex-husband is the given.
