Yesterday, I picked up a necklace that just screamed at me to take it home. I figured my husband would tell me I needed to have it, which ended an internal war with myself about how I didn’t NEED it, I just WANTED it.

It’s a silver necklace with a camera charm. I love this necklace so hard. It’s probably a little ridiculous how much I already am attached to it.

It got me thinking, though, about how fun it would be to start building myself a charm bracelet to “tell my story.” Even if I only build it virtually right here in this blog. So, I tripped on over to the James Avery site. (If you don’t know James Avery jewelry, you are missing out. I mean, I don’t own any myself, but it doesn’t keep me from lusting over it from time to time.) I then proceeded to pick out charms I would want for a charm bracelet.

I would want:

Okay, so it would be a super-full charm bracelet, but its fun to play with the idea. Never hurts to look and dream. I’d add to it as life progressed… when kids came and other fun events happen or new hobbies and interests cross my path.

So tell me… what would your charm bracelet look like?
