So I've been meaning to blog about this ever since my birthday last month. A few days before my birthday, I got a package from my mom and dad.
It was a silver box and a note. The note explained that 26 years ago my grandmother bought me three aquamarine stones (my birthstone) from Australia. I was a little kid so my mom tucked them away until I was older. A few months ago, she re-discovered them and decided to make them into a necklace for me.
No surprise, I cried. It's probably one of the most thoughtful gifts I've ever gotten. Thanks Mom and Dad! Love you!
