My kiddos went together and got me an early present. Being my birthday is December and Christmas is in December I often get a combined present. As a kid, I hated that. As an adult, I love it.
As a kid, I felt like I was a little cheated because I didn’t get as many presents. As an adult, I know I get bigger presents. HA!! In the past, I got a dishwasher and a Roomba. Both were amazing presents as they made my life easier…
One year I got my treadle sewing machine.
You can read all about that HERE.
I loved that present too. It was so fun to learn how to treadle…and what a beautiful machine. I need to make something on it again one day.
You can see why I learned to not mind that my presents were often something that was both birthday and Christmas presents.
This year was no different. My present was combined.
If you guessed jewelry, you are right!!
I am not a big jewelry girl unless it’s something meaningful…You might remember my story about my thumb ring. If you missed that, you can read it HERE.
I have two different necklaces, that are meaningful to me. They have our kids’ names or birthstones on them. I like them both…each is a little different in style so I wear them at different times.
I also have a bracelet I love…It depicts the life of Jesus. You can read about it HERE.
That pretty much sums up my jewelry collection until recently. The kids got me a bracelet…
It is a grandmother’s bracelet. You can see it has the birthstones of each of the grandkids. If you look closely you can also see the kids’ names. I really like it. It will layer great with my other bracelet too. I like wearing more than one bracelet at a time.
I like how one segment will have the name above the stone and the next will have the name below the stone. It’s an attractive design.
I really like it and it really was the perfect present for me. I know I’ll wear it whenever I am out and about doing anything more than just doing errands.
So a big shout out to my kids for getting me such a nice present. I really like it!!
