Local Jewelry Love: MERRICK!

29 Mar

I don’t think an introduction is really necessary for MERRICK …her jewelry speaks for itself!  LOVE her work…LOVE that she’s local!

…And just in case you are wondering about the person behind the jewelry & the name Merrick…trust me, she’s awesome!   A jewelry designer, Country Day Field Hockey Coach, do-it-yourself/HGTV inspired home renovator, family oriented, a giver…the list can go on and on forever!!  Merrick is an example of the modern proper woman…a sort of Jane of all tradesa woman who can do whatever she puts her mind to and still be so womanly. Love it!

(And I must say awesome-ness runs in the family…her mother…is an amazing artist and fabulous person.)

Please feel free to call me for more details/information on her pieces…

*Oh…Someday soon I hope.

A wish for you…

1 Mar

We have a sweet album where you say your hopes/promises/wishes for baby…

On the last page under “My wish for you” I would quote this…

“Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.”

I put it here to share…so that I may never forget it…so that you may pass it along.  To my family, friends, and loves…

With Love Always,
