Simple: get a Pandora bracelet for St Patrick’s Day!
I woke up in Toronto on the morning of March 17th to find a little package on the hotel nightstand. I had to put on my glasses to get a better look, and to my utmost pleasure I saw a little Pandora logo on the sticker. I had secretly (haha) been hoping for one of their bracelets (click for more info),
but figured maybe Mother’s Day would be my next opportunity. Apparently my hints were strong enough that my sweet husband couldn’t even wait for a more gift-worthy occasion.
I received a beautiful sterling silver bracelet, and my very first bead, which my husband chose with the date in mind: a gorgeous sphere with emerald-coloured stones. He was assured
by the saleswoman that it is not
a soccer ball (he knew that’s what I would think…and I sort of did!) but even if it is mistaken for one, Frannie started playing soccer last year, so beginning my bracelet with an Irish Soccer Mom charm is not entirely inappropriate!
Yes, I know: I am spoiled, and I am indulging in a weak moment of materialism, but honestly, they are few and far between. Besides, doesn’t everyone get jewelry for St. Patrick’s Day?
