The Hus has lately been on what is now becoming an infamous roll of gifting literally the greatest presents ever…an iPad for my birthday, a gorgeous Coach bag for our anniversary, and for Mother’s Day this beautiful turquoise pendant. Why turquoise? It happens to be Evie’s “modern” birthstone! I can’t even begin to describe how thoughtful and perfect this present is. I’m not much of a sentimentalist and I’m never going to be that mom who wears photos of her kids around her neck; but this – this is so me. Simple, understated and a perfect way to keep thoughts of my daughter (and my husband) close to my heart. As if they’re ever far from my heart anyway!!
I never considered giving a mother the birthstone(s) of her children, but what a lovely idea. My mom would totally score – a necklace of diamonds and pearls. Maybe next year!
