Why is it that what we love the most, goes by so quickly? Every year we endure the winter, anticipate spring and embrace every minute of summer just to watch it fly by! I remember that all of my most precious memories seem to be the most fleeting. One year rolls into the next, each with a new memory, meaning and message. As for summer, we think of the beach, the sounds of the ocean, the feel of the warm breeze ( even the awful humid air) all whilst relishing in the joys of the season. Barbeques, outdoor parties, cocktails upon cocktails, watersports, white jeans, and for me, my favorite piece of jewelry.
Somewhow my most treasured piece is always the one with the sentimental or spirtual connotation. This year it happened to be my new charm bracelet. Adorned with vintage charms from my Grandmother, two large oval photo charms of my daughter Sophie and my precious Havanese, Cookie, along with a few new pieces that I recently designed. I never thought of myself as pensive or reflective, but lately I have been unusually sentimental...I am suddenly finding meaning in things that I never normally would-whether it be a quote, a photo or a magazine clipping. With this month drawing to a close and new Fall season beginning, this nostalgia is especially prominent.
As we all enjoy the last bits of summer, I anticipate my daughter's and my many new tween friends (from me.n.u) return to school. I wish that it be an easy transition back for all of you! Study hard, play nice with each other, make good memories and remember to relish in the moment... it all goes by too fast!
All my love,
