V has a hard time being away from me. She misses me when she is at her dads, and tends to worry about me.

Because of that, I am always looking for special little trinkets that she can take with her to remind her that I am thinking of her and that I love her. When I {Read More}

I have been a fan of Pandora Style Bead Bracelets for a few years now. I have always wanted one. The only thing holding me back was that it would cost me so much to get a full bracelet.

I love jewelry. I always have. Even as a little girl, I have always felt the need to accessorize. Once I became a mom, I found it was a lot harder to wear some of the beautiful pieces that I loved. For my sanity, and to preserve my jewelry, I took a break from wearing more then earrings. After my long break from one of my favorite accessories, I was thrilled to find the unique pieces at  Vanessa Quijano Jewelry. {Read More}

All mother/daughter relationships are special. I feel very blessed that I have such a close bond with my daughter. Because we are so close, it is difficult for us to be apart. My daughter spends time at her father’s house throughout the month, and while she is away, she misses her mommy and being home with us just as much as we miss her. I knew that she had been feeling left out when she would have to leave – {Read More}
