Hi, I’m Traci in Virginia (Traci Wren), one of your necklace winners. Thank you so much for making me a necklace. I cannot begin to tell you how moved I am by your generosity and the comments left by the readers of your blog. In the midst of all that has happened, I am taking a final class to receive my teaching license in VA through the University of Va. I was working (struggling) on a paper this weekend when my sister told me to read the comments on your blog. I was blown away. It is so amazing to see the power of the internet and strangers express such kindness to one another. Reading the comments, I was a mess–but I appreciated each and every one.
Before my husband passed away he told me to make a list of a few things I would want for my birthday and Christmas. (My birthday is 4 days after he passed–I turned 40). One of your necklaces was on the list. I bought it for myself and there is an initial for myself, my husband and my two children. I wear it everyday and have received so many compliments and inquiries.
Thank you again your kindness. I will think of my sweet husband everytime I wear it.
