I hold the most important close to my heart....
I can’t tell you the number of times I have been stopped and asked about my tiny tags bar necklace. I love the meaning behind this momma made brand. Their mission is “to celebrate a mother’s most precious gift” and “celebrate motherhood”. My bar represents the most important humans in my life....My husband Ryan, step daughter Matea, my angel baby Aria, and my baby boy Avery. I have their first letter of their names on my bar and I absolutely love it. I hold my family so close to my heart. They are what fuels me, inspires me, teaches me, and I just adore the meaning behind my piece.
To get a bit deeper, there was a reason why I wanted such a sentimental piece of jewelry. December 21, 2016 I lost my first baby Aria at 23 weeks. Her actually due date was today, April 21st 2017. I remember every tiny detail that day when I went to the hospital knowing I had to deliver my baby girl that was no longer alive. The heartache I felt was something I never knew one could feel and get through... but I did. I took every day 5 minutes at a time. I couldn’t get past 5 minutes. The healing began with my family being my biggest support system. I was so scared I would never feel like myself again. I felt empty, like my purpose was taken away. Time passed and I knew God had a bigger plan for me. I was so thankful to get pregnant as soon as my doctor told me it was okay. The moment my baby boy Avery was placed in my arms I knew he was exactly where he was meant to be. He was meant just for me. I also knew he had a guardian angel looking over him and everything would be okay. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of Aria, but I do know she is always with me close to my heart, right beside her family and that is why my tiny tags piece means the world to me. Every mama has their own journey. It makes you who you are. You have to have faith and truly believe everything happens for a reason. Sometimes it just takes a little longer to realize what that reason is.
Thank you for taking the time to read this special post. I just received the choker and my favorite to date, the mama necklace. Here are the links to all three...
