Thank you to James Avery for sponsoring this post, and for being an all around amazing company I’ve loved for years.
I have been married for 13 years. I’ve learned it’s best to communicate what you need or would like in life rather than “hope.” 🙂 My husband jokingly says “hope is not a strategy.” So true! As most of you who follow me know, I’m a fairly straightforward person! When it comes to Mother’s Day I always request three things from my husband: breakfast, to not have to make dinner and for the kids to give a sentimental gesture gift. I have zero expectations for real gifts. What I want most of all is for my children to have spent a few minutes thinking of what to give me that represents them and our relatioship. As a sentimental person, I cherish these gifts above all else!
make it easy with James Avery mother’s day charms!
I’ve found the perfect way to mesh this sentimental gift idea with making life easy for my husband with James Avery jewelry. I particular love their beautiful charm collection and jewelry for special events. James Avery has a ton of beautiful options for charm bracelets – from chunky designs, to simple and even gorgeous charm necklaces. The self expression is endless!
I love this because it allows you to build upon your jewelry piece over the years. My children can all choose the charm of the year and it’s a very affordable way to express their love. And it allows me to wear their love and sentiment every single day. The bracelet tells our story – whether it’s a turtle from my son who loves turtles, a birthstone from each of their months or something that represents a special story between us. The options are endless and tells the story of how they feel about me and let’s me see inside their beautiful hearts!
my charm bracelet story
James Avery was kind enough to gift me a bracelet to build my story upon. I chose the word “Celebrate” for my first charm because this word means everything to me.
We have an event every year titled “Celebrate” where friends and family dear to me come together. It’s been a word in my private life used by people I love to remind each other to celebrate, love and take care of each other. It’s about remembering today, our gifts and our abilities to give and love. I have little things around my home that say “Celebrate” to remind me. So when I saw this charm I had a moment of tears. I chose that because what a perfect way to begin my charm collection.
You’ll also note my tagline for my website is “celebrating my way through life.” 🙂 Now you understand a little bit more about me!
I added the “k” because — well, isn’t that obvious? I also love adding the gold so that it can be a beautiful mixed metal collection.
From here I will ever so subtley send my husband the link to the website for my children and him to choose a charm for Mother’s Day. My wish is for this bracelet to grow over the years to tell the story of our family.
