Red Jewelry

So, this is me today.
I decided to dress in red and blue in remembrance of 9/11. Of course as I was getting dressed, I was reminded of just where I was on this day 14 years ago. Then, my mind wondered to my red jewelry. I absolutely love this is set with necklace, earrings, and 5 bracelets. Every time I wear any of the items, I can't help but smile. You see, they remind me of my Grandpa. I bought them specifically for his funeral. I know...I can hear you now..."You bought RED for a funeral?" YES, I DID...and I wore it proudly. Sitting next to me was my mom in her red dress and to the other side was my cousin with her bright red belt. My grandpa was always fond of saying, "I like any color as long as it's red!" Brings a smile to my face every time. Miss you lots, Grandpa!
The jewelry came from Macy's a few years ago. The blue top is from Stitch Fix. To make a donation to the Alzheimer's Association in memory of my Grandpa, click here.
That's it for today!
