Mama Necklace

When Heir to Blair posted on her blog she was hosting a giveaway on this beautiful necklace by Tali Gillette, I fell-in-LOVE.

I HAD to get one! I even turned to Chris and put a bug in his ear that this would be the coolest Mother’s Day present, knowing he would have no clue what to get…even though I’m happy with just a card. (Totally not expecting anything anyways) But this still would have been awesome.

I fell in love with Tali’s story and her inspiration for designing the necklace. What a classy way to show off your a Mama. As she mentioned women have a way of expressing milestones with jewelry from engagement rings to wedding bands, and now they have a Mama necklace.

I may be a different kind of Mom but either way, I have a son. I gave birth to him and he made us a family of 3. No one can take that experience away from us and even as short as his life way… I was still his Mama. And I want everyone to know I am a Mom too, but it’s something kind of hard to do in my spot. It’s something I struggle with on a daily basis. I want so badly to be recognized as a mom. But it is SO hard to do when you you don’t have the baby in tote and all the accessories to go with.

So anyways,

I entered Blairs contest with never expecting to win. There was a ton of other readers who also fell in love and wanted it just as badly and deserved it just as much. So when I got the message from Blair herself that I won the Mama necklace… I had tears. Actually we both did.

I will wear it with pride, and one day I hope, pray and dream I will be able to pass it on to my child when she is a Mama.

Thank you Tali & Blair!

Oh, and you totally deserve the necklace :) you are ABSOLUTELY a mama. I've been looking at a few on Etsy and dropping hints to my fiance that i would love one for mothers day. We only had our girl for 3 days, but I feel as much like a mama as anyone else :)

That's gorgeous! Congrats on winning it! I went to the website because I thought that would be such an awesome gift for Cassie for her first mother's day (her baby Tara was born at 26 weeks also, on Oct. 1, and just went home on April 27th with a trach)... but boy are they expensive! lol

Happy Mother's Day
