Sunday was an incredibly special day. My sweet husband partnered with Hallmark Jewelry and surprised me with the most beautiful and personal gift. As many of you know, I was very close with my grandmother. I not only have a tattoo of her hand writing with the word “endure” on my wrist (it’s a word from a quote she used always say to me), but Kevin and I named our baby girl after her! That’s right, Molly Sullivan Manno is named after my grandma Molly.
Kevin knows how much she meant to me and still means to me. In fact, I first got that tattoo because I wanted people to see it and ask me about it so I could talk about her and keep her memory alive. And then when it came time to pick a name for our daughter, no name seemed special enough for this beautiful little creature we brought into the world. That is, until we thought of naming her after my grandma. I knew by naming our daughter Molly, my grandmother’s memory would continue to live on.
So Kevin, being the romantic that he is, surprised me the other morning with the most beautiful locket from the Hallmark Jewelry collection at Kohl’s. It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Hallmark. I not only work for the Hallmark company, now that I’m a regular on Home & Family, I’ve also been collecting Hallmark keepsake ornaments for 13 years! Every December like clockwork, I go to the Hallmark store and get my favorite Hallmark ornaments.
So knowing this, Kevin surprised me with this gorgeous locket from a company he knows means so much to me. He put two photos in it, one of our daughter Molly and one of my grandma Molly, two people he knows mean so much to me. The fact that he put so much thought into every detail of this gift is so touching! I know it’s gonna be one of those pieces of jewelry that I never want to take off!
If you watched me on Home & Family this morning, then you might’ve noticed that I was wearing it on the show! Honestly, I haven’t taken it off since he gave it to me on Sunday.
I wanted to share this with you guys because I just think it’s such a perfect gift. He put two pictures in the locket, because of the connection with my daughter and my grandmother, but the locket would be perfect to hold one picture as well!
And in general, Hallmark just has the most beautiful collection of jewelry (it’s available online at Kohl’s FYI), at affordable prices that would make beautiful gifts this holiday season! After he got this locket for me, I started looking into their other jewelry and I fell in love with so many of their pieces. I really love this angel wing pendant. And this double heart necklace is just stunning! In fact, since I’m so blown away by the sweet gift Kevin gave me, I wanted to give a gift to one of you as well!
