I found hugs and kisses scattered over my yoga mat today. Each time I opened my eyes, they caught the light dancing off my XOXO Ring from fourseven’s latest Amour collection. And in case dear reader, your mind is racing ahead to the thoughtful, wonderful, romantic man in my life who gifted me such a wonderful ring, allow me to rein those in and say it’s also great to Love yourself and gift yourself things for the sake of love and hugs. After all, love is always in the air, if we care enough to take notice.
The xoxo ring that I am talking about is part of a set of rings. One is a thin, Plain Band with the XO letters running across the top. Another is a plain band with they teeniest little heart hanging from the top. And there is another plain band with the tiniest envelope charm you ever saw with a heart on it, attached on top of the ring.
It feels great to those things which serve as reminders of the good things, the blessings in one’s life. I find that fourseven jewelry always gives me this chance. If I look at my ring finger, I can take a delicious pause and think of all the love letters I have ever received or written (no matter how long ago J) or all the warmth of kisses and hugs that punctuate each day. It also serves as a reminder to hug more, reach out more, to spread the love I carry within.
It makes me think of the times I have made a special effort to show my loved ones how precious they are. One Valentine’s Day that stands out in my memory was when I cooked a special meal. I invited each family member to come dressed in some red, the menu was written out on red cards, and there were red tinged crockeries, mats and candles on the dining table. In the years since, my kids have grown older and I have begun to make less of an effort over festivals.
But I now feel inspired by the fourseven collection to go that extra mile. Love so rarely gets much attention and to be honest it should be quite the opposite since love makes the world go round. It really does. And we don’t have to wait for special days to express our love. We can celebrate love everyday.
Join me in doing something special for your loved ones. Apart from gifting them something from fourseven’s romantic, beautiful, loving, sparkly, fun and lovely jewelry collection.
