And the Winner is...

For those of you who have been following along these last couple of weeks, we have been spending our time counting down to Christmas (which I hope was blessed for each of you!), all the while honoring our precious babies by unwrapping the "gifts" that they have left us! It has been a bittersweet time for me, personally. It is always a treasure to think about the impact of each of my babies in heaven.

Without further ado, I am super excited to share the "special gift" I've been talking about for the last two weeks! It is a beautiful, hand-made piece of jewelry, made by Lisa Leonard! I have LOVED her jewelry every since I first came across it and just had to bless someone with her amazing work. So, one of you (I promise I'll cut to the chase soon!) is receiving this necklace, which is called "marked by love" necklace, pictured below!

Yay!! The winner is: java diva! Email me at teske@mommieswithhope.com, girlfriend! You are the lucky winner of this beautiful necklace, which will be complete with personalization on the back (a name, date, initials...whatever you want!)!

And finally, you have to read the story behind this necklace, referred to as "audrey's necklace"...it's just precious, and one that many of you may be familiar with...

"some lives, though short, profoundly change the world and leave a mark on our hearts. for moms who have lost a child, their hearts are forever marked by love. this beautiful necklace was created in collaboration with angie smith {bring the rain} who lost her baby girl, audrey caroline.

a 1" hand-cast sterling pendant is hand-stamped with love on the front. customize the back with a name, date or short phrase. a beautiful reminder of life and love."
