Blessed for Sure

After an endless internal debate over this gorgeous necklace, (do I need it? do I deserve it? Not really. But I want it!) I have finally ordered my Blessed necklace from Lisa Leonard. She does beautiful things, and I know I have posted about her and her jewelery before, but now this one is on the way to me! (or it will be once she makes it!) And I am so excited.

I have had kind of a bummer week too -- (seems to have been pretty common -- last week was a rough one for many) and I have decided I need to be much more aware of how blessed I really am. I have so much and I am grateful. But I'm hoping wearing this lovely piece of jewelery will be an ongoing reminder to me to stop whining, buck up and go on, remembering how lucky and grateful I am. Because I am. I just forget sometimes.

Somehow this little necklace has spoken to me -- I love it and will let you know how it looks when I see it in person. Can't wait!
