Special gift for myself...

I got my order from Lisa Leonard Designs today and as soon as I opened the boxes the tears started flowing (I told you I've been emotional lately). I LOVE the necklaces I ordered!

I've been wanting to order a personalized piece of jewelry to start wearing when we get our referral. I found Lisa's website and love her hand-stamped, sterling silver jewelry...


I fell in love with this personalized family tree necklace with a freshwater pearl charm (double click to enlarge)...


and I also couldn't help but order this silver necklace with gold flower, also personalized...


I can't wait until I can start wearing these...I'll be so proud to finally be Lauren's momma!

On another note, thank you for all your kind words on my post from Wednesday. I think you all have talked me off the edge and now I'm looking forward to next week when we should know how far they get with referrals. We will finally see our daughter's face either next week or in another five weeks. It doesn't even seem real that we are actually this close.

Love the jewelry!
I especially love the Laurens Mom one.
Its ok to wear it now because you are Lauren's Mom!

I read your Crazy post also.
The wait has been so very long and sometimes torturous.
The light at the end of the tunnel begins to flicker a bit when you get close. Don't know why and don't know why emotions go crazy...maybe hormones, but hang on she is very very close.
As someone told me once..."tie a knot in that rope and keep on swinging!

Looking forward to seeing Lauren's beautiful face. Soon!!
