I'm So Lucky - It Wasn't A Weed Wacker

As Mother's Day draws near, my heart is filled with memories of when my little lovely joined our family. As I write this post I keep  typing, deleting, and then typing and deleting again. It's not easy to share what being a mom is like, in fact I'm not even sure that I want to use this platform to do so. We've all seen it written in cards, in books, on advertisements, but to really capture one's feelings, now that's another story. It's personal.  For me being a mom is the greatest gift. Period!

I'm not one to ask for Mother's Day gifts, because as I said before being a mom is the best gift, but when I saw this necklace I really wanted one. A few years ago my sister in law introduced me to Heart On Wrist . They create personalized jewelry that celebrates the special someone in your life. I immediately fell in love with the simplicity of their designs. I figured since  I was going to receive a gift I should drop some hints of what I really wanted before I ended up with a weed wacker. 

I'm so lucky!, it wasn't a weed wacker. My necklace has three charms on it. One with my lovely's name, one with my wedding date, and one that inspires me to "sonhar"- dream. I wear it almost daily, it looks great with any outfit, and reminds me of my two biggest treasures.

If you're looking for a little something for mother's day, or looking for that certain something to give a mom, you might want to visit Hearty On Wrist. I'm sure you'll find a little something that you deserve.
