It’s not as racy as it sounds!  Get your minds out of the gutter peeps!  :)  Actually, it was a moment of clairvoyance when I received my name necklace from Onecklace.  You may have seen my instagram.  It’s a nice reminder that I AM SAM!

The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous. – Carrie Bradshaw –

I’ve always wanted a name necklace… probably because I’m a huge Sex in the City fan.  Carrie bought her name necklace at a fair while she was shopping with the girls.  Even though it was inexpensive, she realizes the real value when she loses it during her move to Paris with Alexander Petrovsky.  It reminds her of who she is.

And that’s the thing.  I’ve had such an amazing journey recently with the adoption of our son.  But life has definitely changed!  I try to balance motherhood, being a wife, pharmacist, blogger, and oh yeah… me!  By the way, my balancing act is HORRIBLE.  That’s why this name necklace is so awesome!  I AM SAM.  SAM I AM.  It’s an easy reminder that I’m in there somewhere!  :)

And to celebrate my reminder, I tried to wear something very “Sex in the City” and just get dressed up for no reason – very ME!

By the way, excuse my dark circles and the bags under my eyes.  I BE TIRED lately! #mamaneedssleep

      Thank you Lyddie! It’s funny – I never thought that I would need a reminder to “remember” myself. Life gets so busy sometimes!

      BTW, love your latest post with the fedora and tassel necklace! My kind of outfit!! :)

      I know Kay- I’m always watching the reruns (even if I’ve seen them a bazillion times before)! And it IS nice when something as simple as a necklace can remind you of who you are!

      And I really like your belated New Years post! Just for TODAY is great! (I’m so late mine isn’t even done yet! LOL!)
