Eventually



For our first anniversary, Phil had a necklace made for me by Fig Jewelry.  It has our wedding date on it and the jewel circle.  He pick the circle because it matches the wedding bands I have.  I loved it!  It is my favorite piece of jewelry (besides my wedding rings) and I wear it most days.

After my first surgery, I bought a longer chain for it.  I haven't liked having things around my neck and the longer chain is the perfect length.

Last week, I decided I wanted another charm from Fig, this time as a reminder that even though we are having some challenges and road blocks  in creating our family, it will happen.

Eventually.

I love it!  Now when ANOTHER person announces they are pregnant, or publishes another blog post with pregnancy updates, or posts more pictures of their cute sweet baby, I can grab my charm and remember that it will happen for us too someday.  I just need to be patient.  Don't get me wrong, I am SO HAPPY for those having babies.  But it is a bit of a challenge to not feel sad at the same time too.


Fig does other custom necklaces, with charms and a variety of chains.  I got one for Joanna on Braxton's first birthday.  Joanna got one for her mother-in-law with the grandkids each on their own charm.  And two of my coworkers have bought their wives charms with their kids' names on them.

If you are in the market for a custom necklace, check out Fig and give Laura a call.  She has a workshop you can visit or she will work with you over the phone or e-mail.  Both of these charms were designed with just a consultation over the phone.  Laura is THAT good.

*This was NOT a paid sponsorship.  Although I wish it was.  If Laura ever wants to give me a charm, I am totally into it.  :)

  1. I LOVE those types of charm necklaces and have always wanted one. Maybe I need to get a few brochures and leave them lying around the house. Our anniversary is coming up. :o)
