- Wedding: May 2010
So I just got off the phone with my grandmother and we were talking about christmas. She was saying how she didnt buy anything this year because money was tight (were in the same boat believe me!) and I of course said it wasnt important AT ALL!
But then she told me…
She had a present for me….
She is handing down to me precious family heirlooms.
First is my great great grandmothers cameo (sp?) Made out of ivory from the 1800’s My family came here from italy on a boat with nothing. that cameo was one of the only things my great great grandma had when she came here. I will be wearing it on my wedding day :)))))
She is giving me a ivory clutch purse that belonged to my great grandma which she bought in the early 1920’s!!!!
I am so excited i can hardly stand it!! Its so much more meaningful that all my accessories will be from generations from my family. Its like I will have them all with me!!
Has anyone here received a meaningful gift like this?
