2 years ago my FMIL started something that I'm going to infect every woman I know with.
No, not the radio station website (that I'm also addicted to) But the charm bracelets.
FMIL gave FSIL a Pandora bracelet as a night-before-the-wedding present and on it was this adorable wedding cake with a cute little gold cake topper. Everyone was very impressed and all the girl's hearts in the room melted. It was a surprise for TOB and I to receive our Pandora bracelets for Christmas with our own little heart charm. Each different and special.
The next charm I got for my 21st birthday.
The next event that happened was an engagement for TOB (then TOF). This prompted FMIL to get me a charm as well... Though it wasn't as expensive as the one TOB got because it was her engagement. (understandable)
Then it was Christmas again and I got a suitcase that stood for all the traveling I was doing to see Jake while he was in AIT.
The next charm I received was another dangling heart that had a red inside for our engagement.
I'm so excited to keep this going. I've gifted charms and bracelets to the other girls involved and I plan on continuing and adding people into the tradition.... What is cooler than getting a charm for every meaningful and special event in your life? I wear my bracelet every day and play with it constantly. if you look you can see it in every picture I'm in over the past 2 years. That's how much I love it.
What sentimental tradition do you participate in?
