My bouquet will be full of love, full of thought, full of memories – and full of earrings! There have been more than a few people kind enough to send me earrings from family jewelry boxes, including Alex’s grandmother.
Oma is a lot of love wrapped up in an imposing personality. I think it’s fair to say she has seen a few more ups and downs than most, and that’s she’s come out with a sharp wit and a steel core that is an inspiration to her family – and to me. I can only hope that an ounce of her ability to handle life with grace finds its way into our marriage.
Earrings themselves might be small, but the meaning behind them is just as powerful.
Good things come in small packages – like Oma and her earrings!
