As soon as we sent in LOI for Frances, I knew I wanted to get a piece of jewelry with her name on it so I could have her close to me as we wait. I searched on my favorite place to shop, Etsy and found just what I was looking for at a shop called Gracie & Me Design.
I just have to share that the shop owner Barbara was so nice and so sweet, she really went above and beyond and offered me so many different options so I could put together exactly what I wanted. Having an Etsy shop myself, I know how important word of mouth is so I just wanted to share that if you are looking for a piece of jewelry as a keepsake of your little one, you should check her out. The necklace has her Chinese name, dob, the symbol for love, and her birthstone. Once we are home I am going to add another charm with her gotcha day on it.
This last weekend I took the necklace off and set it on the edge of the sink in the bathroom and as soon as I did the chain and birthstone charm slipped off and slid down the drain...it happened in the blink of an eye :( Luckily the handy husband worked some kind of man magic and retrieved them for me and once again my necklace is intact but never again will I put it on the edge of the sink!
