To some, it might not be as posh but it took me more than a year to save for it". "My sister graduated last month and I went home to celebrate with them," she explained. "When I got home, I saw my sister wearing mom's birthday present. I asked her about the watch and she said it was mom's graduation gift to her. My heart sank.
