Charmed

I have always been a fan of charm bracelets. There is just something about having a wide array of sparkly, dangly jewelry that appeals to this girl. No surprise there! My momma bought me my very first charm bracelet when I was in fifth grade and for every significant occasion she would buy me a charm to symbolize it. As I got older my bracelet filled up so she bought me another. That too filled up pretty quickly. What can I say, life is pretty exciting as me:-)

Two Christmases ago she continued the tradition, this time in a bigger way-she got me a Pandora bracelet! I had been ogling them for a while but wasn't sure if I was ready to take the plunge yet. Momma must have read my mind. She began with one precious charm and now my bracelet has grown to nine! Each one is special to me for its own reason; they all have their own stories. Here is what I have collected so far:
The daisy from my momma in honor of my sweet girl, Daisy!
The heart (also from my momma) for Valentine's Day 2011. It made even more sense when a few weeks later my sister's heart started acting up!



AND

The "forever together" and the pearl dangle are both from my wonderful hubby for our first anniversary. He thought this one out too! The "forever together" is to represent our marriage and the pearl is the birthstone of June-the month we were married! He's a keeper:-)

The house came from my brother and his sweet girlfriend for my birthday this past year. It was to symbolize our first home together!

For those of you not familiar with the pineapple, it is a sign of "welcome" and Southern hospitality. I have a thing for pineapples and love to collect them. My wonderful in-laws gifted me with this for my birthday my past year. Appropriately it was bought in Charleston, SC where the pineapple is the symbol of the city!

The owl is the symbol of my sorority, Chi Omega. The momma bought me this one for my birthday this past year. I racked up on my birthday, huh?!

This sweet pup was given to me by Momma this past Christmas to represent Daisy. The fact that I have two charms to represent her did not get past me. What can I say, she is the princess after all. . .
I received this charm this past Valentine's day from Momma. 

I love how simple, yet elegant, all the charms are and I can't wait to add more to the list! I may or may not have a bit of a wishlist going at a local boutique-type store. . .
