When my mom first came to town, I asked her what all she wanted to accomplish while she was here. She told me that there was only 1 thing that she really wanted to do and that was to take me to Tiffany & Co.
If you have read my past posts then you know that there is a lot of history between my mom and I. We don’t really have the best history or the best present for that matter, but I suppose that the dysfunction of our relationship will always be there. You see my mom when she does finally visit us, she brings gifts and about everything and anything imaginable for gifts for Sean and the kids. So, for me she decided that she was going to take me to Tiffany and Co.
We ended up at Las Vegas – Crystals at CityCenter, Tiffany & Co. The store is unbelievably gorgeous! And the staff is very friendly! Of course these are 2 very important factors for me! When we went to the store, my husband kept the babies out in the hallway, so that my mom and I could look around without all of the little fingers touching everything. Not that they cared in the store, in fact I was told that they have a little Tea Party set up, for when the little girls do make their visit. So, when I ever do make another stop into the store, I know I can take the babies without fretting the entire time!
There were so many exquisite pieces. You see I am a jewelry fanatic, I have so many pieces I don’t even want to tell you. However, I can tell you when I did get each piece and what each of them mean to me. Most of them have some type of reasoning behind them. And now…. I have my first piece from Tiffany & Co.
I will remember the year, 2012. I will remember this was the start to my mothers retirement, they year that she says that she is going to be more involved with my family. This is the year that my Papa passed away, the year that Papa was taken by God and removed of all his sufferings. This is the year that my dad is retiring also. This is the year that I actually put a voice to my moms ears about how much she has hurt me over the years. This is the MOMENT that I have accepted that I can not expect for her to want to be as large a part of my family as I want her to be. However, I think that this bracelet, might mean to her of me thinking about her each time I look at it ( I don’t think she realizes that I think of her way more often than that).
The sales associates were great, and Peter, when you read this, please know that you did make for “A day to remember at Tiffany” Thank you for giving us a great journey!
I think my wish list is going to start adding up. I have already decided what I want for my next piece to be!Tiffany 1837™ ring in RUBEDO™ metal. This is a special edition ring that has the signature inside of it for 2012 only, so I guess my savings account will need to learn to grow pretty quickly! With the time crunch and all! So let’s hope I get it!
Do you have a dream list? I may be for Tiffany & Co. or maybe something else! Leave me a note, let’s see!!!
