Show & Tell Friday: A Precious Gift
My darling "little sister in Christ," Marie, was married this 4th of July, and I was honored beyond measure to be one of her bridesmaids...Well, technically, I was a bride's matron. The unfailingly generous, undoubtedly sentimental, and unequivocally elegant bride chose delicate pearl earrings as her gift to all her bridesmaids (and matrons!). They are from her new father-in-law's jewelry store in St. Louis, MO--isn't that sweet? Other than the pearl-and-diamond earrings I wore on my own wedding day (a cherished gift from my mother), these are the most beautiful earrings I own, and I know they will likely become a treasured heirloom in my family, just as I'm sure Marie would wish them to be.
