reminders

hhh collage 3 I'm a forgetful girl.

When I first meet you, I might just forget your name. It's not you, it's me. I'm a Name Forget-er. I'm getting better, though, and try try try to speak the name and then slip it into the conversation at least twice while I'm chatting with the person. Names are tough, especially when I'm meeting a slew of new folks at once.

If I don't write something down right away, I'm in trouble. Appointments. Favors for friends. Meeting times. School news. Changes in schedule. Drop-this-offs. So I'm forever scribbling lists and jotting down things on stray pieces of paper and adding notes in margins.

Reminders are my best friend.

I don't stop there.

There are lovely, important reminders around every corner, in every room of our home. The big chalk board in our kitchen has love well written in my imperfect cursive. Love is spoken here hangs in the hallway. The guest room wall holds I have a reason to sing. You have been given today is taped to the fridge door. On the shelf in the living room sits a frame with You shall see wonders.  I could go on and on.

All for a forgetful, sinful, saved girl.

I don't stop there.

Each morning, I clasp delicate reminders around my neck. Snap SHINE around my wrist. Slip be a blessing over my head and place the words over my heart. I wear these around all day and they bring a song to my heart. A smile to my face. A warming to my heart. A prompt to my hands and feet. I am reminded of Who I belong to. Of Where I find my worth. Of what He asks of me.

Reminders for a forgetful, sinful, saved girl.

  My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart. ~Proverbs 4:20-21

Necklace Giveaway // Vesper's Darling Adornments

"Hi everyone! I'm Megan, a stay-at-home mother of 2. In my free time, I enjoy crocheting, singing in the church choir, playing piano, watching baseball, cooking, and spending time with my AMAZING family.

I originally started making necklaces after my daughter, Vesper, was born. She would get SO distracted while nursing. I had heard of other mothers using nursing necklaces to keep their children focused. When I looked into buying nursing necklaces, I found that most were ones that I would never wear outside of the house.I decided to create my own that I would be proud to wear any day.

I received a number of compliments on my necklaces from all sorts of women, nursing mothers and non-mothers alike. I decided to start a business creating necklaces that could be worn by ANYONE!

I've stayed true to my original inspiration of nursing necklaces by using pendants, big beads, and brights beads; all things that would keep the attention of a young child. At the same time, I create pieces that are beautiful enough that ANY woman would be proud to wear them!"
