Happy Mother’s Day! Today i got to see my FMIL and she gave me something old to wear for my wedding…a pearl necklace! How honored I am to have such a wonderful and thoughtful gift. She had them and just asked me if I would like to have them! And I said of course…I can wear them on my wedding day! What is your something old…and where did you get it? What is your something new, borrowed and blue?
