Something Special

I can't believe that in less than two months, hubby and I will be celebrating our TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY! Oh man.... I know we got married at 20, but this makes me feel old just the same!

Before we got pregnant, we had been planning a wild and exciting trip to commemorate this special day: traveling to Central or South America, for example. We had tens of thousands of frequent flyer miles in the bank and ready to go.

Well.... needless to say, we won't be globe-trekking this August - I think the baby would notice we were gone and miss us just a bit :)

BUT! Just because we won't be in South America on an anniversary adventure doesn't mean that we can't try to make it special in some way. Luckily for us, my in-laws will be in town that day so I'm hoping we can at least go out for a special dinner!

Another way to make it special? Pretty jewelry from Anjolee! They have a beautiful selection of diamond anniversary rings, diamond pendants, and diamond engagement rings. I received this lovely heart shaped pendant that I can't wait to wear on our special night:

I have a feeling it will look stunning with a little black dress!

What about you? Do you have any pieces of jewelry that you wear for special occasions?


  1. Ohhh this is GORGEOUS!
    I like to wear my Pandora Charm bracelet for special occasions, and of course a string of pearls! I have the pair my granny gave my mama for her sweet 16th birthday - they are beautiful!
    ... ok, so as you can see I haven't sent you my guest post yet, I am potty training in my hood... can I get it to you by later today?

  2. I'm sure you'll find something fun to do to celebrate 10 years of marriage! That necklace is so pretty. I don't have one special piece of jewelry, but I do love wearing a large amethyst ring that was my mom's or the earrings I wore on our wedding day :)

  3. Oh so pretty!! It will look stunning with a little black dress out to dinner.

    I have a hand blown glass necklace that I bought when we were in Italy a couple years ago. We took a day trip out of Venice to the island of Murano. It was neat watching them blow the glass and then take a piece of it home. I love wearing it because it always reminds me of that day - which was just perfect!

  4. That is such a beautiful necklace Sarah!! eeee! Happy (almost!) 10 year anniversary!! xoxo

  5. Congrats!!!!!

    Pretty necklace :)

  6. Happy almost congratulations!! I hope you can take your awesome trip soon, maybe when baby boy is a few years older. ;)

  7. Awwww! happy almost anniversary!!! ours is this coming week (the 19th) -- I love celebrating love!!! :)

  8. When I turned 16, my nani gave me her opal ring. Opals are my No. 1 fav stones, and this ring is beautiful! It's way too much for everyday wear, so I'm always excited to have an occasion to wear it.

  9. gosh, I wish I wore jewelry more but I'm really bad about it.

    Your necklace is beautiful and congrats on your anniversary!
