This week, I’m positively smitten with:
1. Family: It wouldn’t be appropriate to post a Smitten List on Christmas Eve without giving a shout-out to the number one reason I love this holiday so much: FAMILY. Mine is loud and large, we sing and dance and talk over each other. We exhaust each other and sometimes annoy each other, but we’re all on the same page when it comes to how we feel about each other. The holiday season is the best opportunity to keep our family traditions going strong, and to appreciate each other.
2. Ring Holders: If you own at least one ring and don’t yet have an adorable ring holder, you must immediately add this to your Christmas list! Like home decor, these charming, small objects make a big statement about your personality and interests. I happen to collect gray cats so the long tail on this cat is where I keep my engagement ring when it’s not on my finger. You can find ring holders anywhere, from Michaels to Bed, Bath and Beyond.
3. Alex & Ani: Two months ago these bracelets made Crystal’s Smitten List, but I can’t help but also confess how much I’m smitten with them. Each of my bracelets represents me – from the Saint Christopher “Guide My Path” to the cowboy boot to the oyster pearl. I love when a piece of jewelry tells the story of your life and start conversations! Which ones do you have?
