Earrings in a time capsule!



So I am a big fan of keepsakes...and thank God I have two girls. Samia since you are nine months you being wearing the same earrings I wore when I was a baby. If I am not mistaken I wore those earrings from the day I was born till when I was 5 years old. Then at 5 Abuela put another pair of hoops and those I wore till about 10 years old.

Samia now you are wearing my 5 year old hoops and Gamila you are wearing my baby earrings.

Is just those little things that make me so happy and hopefully one day my grandchildren would wear them...well that is if they are girls.

So nenas take care of those earrings as of today one pair is 34 years old and the other one 29 wow wow....
