The Perfect Gift

My little girl just turned 4.
She's a funny creature and seems to love the simplest of things.

I had really wanted to get her something special for her birthday. A trip to the toy store turned out to be a disaster. We offered up dolls, games, and the like but nothing seemed to grab her eye. Then she found a ball. Once she got a hold of it there was no letting go. I tried to take it away from her in order to get her to focus on finding a birthday gift. The result was tears. I did realize how ridiculous the situation was, so we paid the $1.65 for the ball and left.

I decided to look for something special that was not a toy ~ and found the perfect gift. Ever since she read "The Kissing Hand" by Audrey Penn she loves to give the ASL sign for "I love you". It's become the thing we do at bedtime when I'm leaving her room and a way to say goodbye once she is in her classroom at school.

I searched Etsy for something with this sign & found the perfect item by Silver Shed Studio. Casey was wonderful to work with and quickly sent out this beautiful necklace.
As you can see by the picture my daughter really loves it.
Thanks Casey for a wonderful gift.
