My purse was stolen...

I normally don't blog on Sunday's but, I had to make an exception...I need to talk out what happened today. I went out to a regular spot of mine to do a photoshoot and came back to my car an hour later to find my purse was gone. I took me while to digest that. I came home and kept saying, "I can't believe someone would steal my purse?" I had everything in it of course. (isn't that the purpose of a purse?) Once I swallowed the hard truth I started making calls to my bank and credit card the hour they had my card they had already charged over $1500.  I shut them down in a hurry and even though I know I probably won't pay for the totally bugged me. It's the injustice of it all. My husband is a pastor and has been speaking on loving our neighbors and choosing to love those who curse you. Today really tested that. I didn't want to bless them...I wanted to be angry! Do you know how much time I'm going to have to put it to rebuild my wallet? Anyways, this is why we have our lives to walk out our faith! I eventually came around and realized there are a lot worse things that could've happened and I'm thankful they didn't.'s where the plot thickens...just when I had let it go I came from a family function to find a message from the Bloomington Police Department! They called at 4pm and had 2 suspects in their custody and wanted to confirm that I did not give them permission to use my NoemiPhotography business cards. But, I missed the call and the officer couldn't find the cards on them when he caught up with them so he had to let them go. He did get their names and info though.  But, because they didn't charge them then we might be able to charge them with more because of the amount they charged.

I don't know whether to be happy or sad. I don't really want them to be charged I just want my purse back. I had untouched gift cards in my wallet.

I called my sister who is a cop in Canada and told her the whole story. It felt good to be taken care of by the police department and I wanted to toot their horn! She told me everything I need to bring to the Edina Police Department and I'm going to put it together and drive it over tonight.

I don't want to think about it anymore.

Nothing like this has ever happened to me's hurtful and personal. Weird. Why do people do mean things? So funny that one of the places they chose to go on their shopping spree was Burger King...wouldn't have been my first choice.

As always, thanks for reading.
