Well When You Say it Like "That"

So, today is my birthday.  And every year for the past 5 years, my son and I have the same conversation on this day: 


         Ryan - Happy Birthday, Mom!

         Me - Thanks, Buddy.

         Ryan - Will you wear the birthday necklace I made for for you when I was 7?


When my son gave me the necklace 5 years ago, he told me it was to remind me of my 2 favorite things; one of those "things" is him.  The other...




         My boyfriend - You must be very proud.

    And this is why it's an absolute shame that we don't live closer.

    1. It's beautiful. Can Ryan teach my son to make a Guinness necklace?

    2. Absolutely! And I'll have them make 2 while they're at it - I could use a Guinness necklace. And thank you, I think it's beautiful, too.

  4. If one of my kids made me a masterpiece like that, I would cry. Tears of joy. Tears of pride. You are a lucky girl. Happy (belated) birthday!

  6. Shoot! How did I miss this post? (Sorry) Happy belated! I'm "air clinking" you now.

    Did he actually MAKE this for you?? Either way, it's totally awesome. I'm going to start hinting now so that by the time my son is seven he can make me a necklace with a box of wine on it.

    1. Thank you for the birthday wishes - I celebrate all month, so you're right on time! And, yes, he actually made it for me. It's one of my favorite things. Just have your son call mine - he can walk him through the wine box necklace process.

  7. Happy Birthday month! My children made Stella Artois earrings for me this year for my birthday. I wear them with pride at their ingenuity and thriftiness :)
