One of my favorite things in this world is nostalgia. It creates such beautiful and real emotions that show you have really lived life. Any little thing can transport you into a moment from the past. One of my most beloved feelings of nostalgia comes from this beautiful necklace passed down from my grandmother. We have a sort of kindred spirit that means so much to me. She is everything a woman should be. She is strong, confident, kind, opinionated, and graceful. She loves with all of her heart, she feels with every ounce of her, and she does with fierce intensity. For years I watched her wear this necklace always looking so cool and put together. Being ever so aware of those around her she recognized my interest in the piece and passed it down to me. I now wear this necklace day in and day out. Either styled as a statement piece or tucked away carefully into my blouse. When I wear it I feel strong, beautiful, and close to my roots. I look forward to the day that I can pass it down to my future child, keeping alive the spirit of my grandmother and creating a family tradition in the process. It is little things like this that make life so special to me. I hope you all have a beautiful and meaningful start to your week!
