Sorry

For those of you that visit the blog regularly I have to apologize for the Rascal Flatts song that plays over and over! I thought when I added it it would be a small little icon on the side bar... but NO... it took up a whole post. I know I am a little obsessed but I really wasn't planning on doing a whole post about Rascal Flatts new album. I just hope this one is better than their last. Don't get me wrong... I love most of their stuff but their last wasn't my favorite.


Anyway, on to more important things. A few days after we buried Avery my sister-in-law gave me a locket with Avery's name engraved on the back. I have worn that locket almost every day since it was given to me. Unfortunately, all that wearing is taking it's toll on the beautiful locket and I think I may have to retire it and put it somewhere safe. I love it so much that it really makes me so sad to think that I won't wear it almost everyday anymore. When I don't wear it, I wear a ring and/or necklace that is Avery's birthstone- an opal. (Someday when I remember I will post pictures of all these.) So I was thinking, what am I going to do without the locket? I can't wear the opals every day because they are so soft and I am afraid of breaking them or losing them. Then I came across this website, http://www.beadcreationsinternational.com/ , and I found a bracelet that I can wear everyday to honor my little Avery. It isn't as good as the locket but it will have to do. I have to say it did turn out beautiful though, they sent me a picture of the final project before they mailed it out yesterday. I am excited to get it!!
They have some really great stuff on this website. I wanted to get a necklace too but that will have to wait. The bracelet will do for now.
Some may think it silly that I feel I need to wear a piece of jewelry every day that is connected to Avery. I know she is with me in my heart everyday but I love having something beautiful that people can ask about and I can tell them about my daughter. So what if I am weird!!

I think that is so awesome! I love the idea of something on you all the time so that when you look at it, Avery immediately comes to mind. That bracelet is beautiful and the perfect piece to remind you of her. I have always loved the idea of a mothers ring/necklace/bracelet. That is just the prettiest one I have seen.

Thanks for sharing the website with us. I have a tattoo on my lower back to honor my girls, but I was thinking of getting something else to wear. The braclet looks wonderful. I am happy you found something else, while you retire the necklace.

You are not silly for wanting to wear something for Avery. I have several special necklaces to honour Theo which I like to wear on intermittent occasions. At first, I couldn't bear to not have one on but as time has gone on, I have slowly felt able to wear other jewellery instead on some days.

However, if I have a wobbly day, wearing a necklace makes me feel closer to Theo.

I love the bracelet! So much in fact, that I may get one myself. Thanks for sharing. And don't apologize for the music...my son Jacob always wants me to check your blog when he's around because he loves your music!

I love the new bracelet;it makes a wonderful addition to the Avery jewelry collection! We had fun last night at dinner. Thanks for the movies; Eagle Eye was fantastic. Talk to you later.

What a beautiful braclet! I think it's an amazing show of love that you wear a physical reminder of your sweet Avery everyday. Shortly after Branson's passing my mom gave me necklace that I wear often, and we also had Rob's wedding ring engraved on the inside "Branson, Ours Forever". I hope that someday when we can afford it I can get a beautiful setting with Branson's birthstone in it. So, I totally understand...
I also read your comment on my blog, and you are more than welcome to put a link to the blog on your site if you'd like.
Loving you and your little one

Never forgetting Gregory said...

That is beautiful. I wear a necklace every day that has Gregory's birthstones. I'm sorry the locket is getting so worn. It feels good to have our little ones so close to our heart each day.
