When I LOVE… I LOVE HARD ❤️️

THESE PEOPLE I ❤️

Having a Beautiful Service for my Mom included so MUCH support & kindness from these and so many other people….my friends ❤️️❤️

I FEEL SO BLESSED …..

part of the time spent preparing for my Moms service included a visit from my sister….

We have not ALWAYS seen eye to eye BUT she is one of the MOST talented women I know… Seriously

She has this “eye” for the little things that make a difference and the “big” things like moving my bedroom 📺 out of my room😘 and maybe getting rid of stuff I was holding onto 🤗😘

Heres some of her “touches” in my home that STILL make me SMILE….

Thank U Stacey…..

The door is ALWAYS OPEN for a visit…….

LOVE U MUCH ❤️️❤️

One Day At a Time 🕰⏰🕰⏰

I’m STILL Celebrating turning 49.95

YES $49.95 NOT 50

That was the theme of my day and it CONTINUES.

I got GREAT gifts like FUN gift cards

(I didn’t know Nordstrom would do $49.95 gift cards :0)

and

DRUNK gummy bears soaked in vodka…..

BUT the BEST gifts were the cards, the notes, the LOVE shown by my very dear friends these past weeks, months and  years….

THANK YOU one and ALL

Last Friday night I had the BEST date with the original JZ who took me to see Justin Timberlake and the other Jay-Z as a birthday extra.

She already spoiled me with my favorite things, so this was above and beyond.

The sea of cell phones shot in the right lower corner was an AMAZING moment

It sent chills down my spine….SO COOL to be there 

THANK YOU JZ…..

The OTHER concert I attended last weekend was WE THE KINGS with Ryan at the Regency Ballroom.

Ryan LOVES the band

They have a song called ” Just Keep Breathing” that he sent to me as a theme song……….Luv Him

Now that the Celebrations are over, I will JUST Keep  Breathing and live this motto in the coming weeks……..

HAPPY 2013!! I am counting on IT!!!

simple – uniqu – vintage – men – bracelets – keepsakes – a la carte – ready to ship

It’s a fresh new year-
what’s your word of inspiration for 2013?

Something you want to focus on in 2013, to help make it the best year yet.
It could simply be a word- balance, family, hope, joy, strength, trust;
or maybe a name, a date or a scripture- whatever inspires YOU.

Our sweet necklace helps you keep your focus-
each charm is hand sculpted from fine silver,
handstamped with your word,
and hung on our new adjustable sterling link chain.
It comes with a freshwater pearl,
or switch it out with a birthstone crystal if you choose-
we chose an emerald (May) crystal since emerald is Pantone’s 2013 color of the year!

This sweet necklace is a beautiful keepsake,
shop for them here!
