Social Climber blog today. She told us all about her charm bracelet and what it meant to her. She asked her readers about theirs, so I am responding today!
I adore my charm bracelet, and while it is not the most expensive piece of jewelry I own, I do believe it is the most precious.
Starting at the bottom, 6 o'clock position, is a disc with one of my dear Dad's service award pins from United Airlines, where he was a senior captain for many, many years. (It was given to me on my 20th birthday and has his nickname for me and my birthday on the back.) Moving clockwise, a shell that represents growing up at the beach, a heart engraved with our middle daughter's Frances' initials (a baby we lost at birth in 1994), the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower, part of a group of charms which represent my favorite European cities, a Coca-Cola bottle (what can I say....I am Southern!), a heart with Older Daughter's monogram and birthdate, a precious little charm with my maiden name initials, given to me when I was a junior bridesmaid at age 10 (my first gold charm!!), the Junior League of Richmond charm, a gold crown (representing London), a charm with the logo of Older Daughter's middle school, where I was President of the PTA, a heart with Dear Husband's monogram and our wedding date,
a gondola, the Medici seal and the Coliseum (representing Venice, Florence and Rome, Italy), a final heart with Younger Daughter's monogram and birthdate, and, finally, a comedy mask in honor of my work in and love for the theatre.
