Did you ever have one of those heart friendship necklaces that were broken into 2 pieces and you each wore one around your neck? I did. I have always loved friendship necklaces and bracelets. They always seemed so special no matter what they were. I got a package in the mail the other week full of christmas goodies for Rowan and inside was also a little gift for me. They were what I know refer to as my grown up friendship bracelets. They are just so beautiful. Punky sent them to Julie and I. I love them!! When I packed this dress for the trip, I knew my bracelets would match perfectly.

I would also like to add this dress into my ever growing “favorite dress” collection. I love this dress. I feed a giraffe in this dress today and this dress has amazingly deep pockets. So, yeah. This dress is kind of kick ass.
