These are a few of my favorite things

I had a wonderful Christmas filled with great family time. Of course there were lots of gifts, but two that really tugged at my heartstrings.

My Dad and Barb know how much I love nostalgic memorabilia, especially when its personal to my own childhood. I grew up on Spruce Street, so Barb found this beautiful metal Spruce Street street sign on eBay.

When she looked a little closer, she saw that it was made in Pottstown, PA. And there’s only ONE Spruce Street in my town, so this was the ACTUAL street sign on my street growing up. Since it was made to fit on a pole, my Dad made a sweet wooden stand, so I can display it in my home. And it brought out *all the feels*

Just when I thought I couldn’t get any luckier, I opened this beautiful gift from my Mama:

Word of the Year necklaces! She had each charm engraved with my words and their year:

2014 Love

2015 Grow

2016 Present

2017 Trust

2018 Welcome

2019 was left blank, so I can engrave it with whatever is coming for me next! You can read more about my words here.

Tears.of.Joy! Every time I wear them, I feel like I’m wearing badges of accomplishment for getting through the hardest and most fun years of my life. AND they’re in gold, silver, and rose gold. DI-vine!

It was a Merry Merry Christmas 🙂
