So I bought a necklace this weekend.


One thing I wanted for Christmas, but never really put on a list was a dainty little necklace that I could wear everyday no matter if I was dressy or casual and whether I had on other jewelry. Just a little tiny one that would nestle high in between my collar bone. They always catch my eye when I'm eating lunch with a friend. 


Because I didn’t really have it on any list, I didn’t get it.  But this weekend, that all changed.

I was in this cute store I love in Oklahoma City called Blue Seven.  It’s a hipster’s delight, but it also has great gifts and unique pieces in all departments. 


When I saw it hanging, I knew it was mine.  When I turned it over and saw the price, I did a double take. Sold.  It was going to be a gift to myself.  Sometimes I buy myself a Valentine’s present.  I think this might be the one.


It simply says PEACE in a tiny little circle.  And, that’s the exact message I want hanging on my neck!

I love wearing something that has a story and meaning beyond the usual. And sometimes you just have to give yourself something that only you understand. 


It’s the exact message I want people to see when they approach me and it’s the message I constantly want to remind myself when I catch a reflection.


That the joy I want hanging around my neck is the message of peace.


A reminder in my time.  A reminder to my wandering thoughts.  A reminder to my time.  A reminder to my joy.

What? I never showed you my Peace necklace that I wore with my Coca-cola hip huggers and my purple puff sleeves shirt. I was cool, Chick. Or the time that I got the necklace caught in the back of my hair when I was tucking it under my shirt collar when the school principal walked in?
