Something Pretty-Giving A Little Extra Love

pink and pink jewelry 2
My daughter had a Daddy Daughter Dance.  She chose to wear her pretty white dress with the two different shades of pink polka dots.  She looked adorable.  She timidly asked if she could wear a pair of my dangly earrings.

I told her that she could and her eyes lit up!  The day before the dance I told her that I had a surprise for her for her Daddy Daughter Dance, but I wouldn’t tell her what it was until the day of the dance.

I whipped up this pink/pink circle jewelry to go with her dress.  She got not only dangly earrings that matched perfectly, but two bangle bracelets and a necklace to boot!
She was so delighted that I did this for her.  I was so delighted that she cared!  It’s the little things sometimes that mean the most.  We both thought she looked so pretty, she because of her jewelry, me because of who she is!

Hmmmm. Thanks for the comments on being a sweet Mom. Being the best Mom I can, is what matters most to me. But that wasn't the point of my post. This girl of mine is a gem! Seriously, and this was about taking the time to do something small and how that ended up making an awesome connection for us! It made my day because it made her day. Do you know what I mean?

So sweet! She's lucky to have such a caring mom. I bet she'll remember that forever. I guess being a mom and daughter. I can just picture how special that was to her.

The Daddy Daughter relationship is so precious. What a treat for your daughter to spend a special evening with her favorite guy wearing treasures you made for her. Definitely a memory maker.
