The coral stone Southwestern bracelet on my left wrist was given to me by my friend and ‘desert’ sister, Debbie, many years ago when we were leading a conference together.
The coral necklace that actually almost matches the bracelet was given to me by a friend for my birthday. He must have noticed how much I admired the pendant when we were out on a window shopping walk in Carmel and unbeknownst to me, purchased it to present to me on my birthday several years ago.
So, the revelation is this: when I don’t have to pay attention to the clothes I’m wearing, I can pay attention to the most precious things I own and the stories and people that go with them. An unexpected gift of the 1 dress, 100 day challenge!
