As I was thinking of simplicity and the simple things in life, I had difficulty thinking of something to photograph that would enable me to write about it. I settled on this piece of jewelry.
I love brooches. I wear them on the lapel of my blazers. Brooches are probably my favoite piece of jewelry. This one is extra special as it is the first Mother's Day gift I ever received. The diamond represents my birthday month, my husband's is emerald, and my son's is aquamarine. All set in the tree of life....family tree. Something so simple but yet so meaningful. I am blessed with a creative thoughtful husband who understands me.
