Mini Nuala and Ady

I got my mom a necklace from Planetjill for Christmas. What's Planetjill you ask? It's a company who makes handmade jewlery, where you send them a picture and then they take that picture and put it on a necklace or a bracelet or all sort of things. They emailed me the proof over a month and a half ago and I SO wanted to share it, however, mom sometimes checks the site so I couldn't take the chance. But now she has the necklace so I can reveal the proof to all.

Can I mention how long it took me just to decide on this picture? I ransacked mom's photos last time I was in Benicia. Now that was not a pretty picture.

P.S. The actual charm is actually about 3/4" wide and tall. To give you some perspective.

Mom loved it. I suppose Ady would say I tormented her, but she tormented me right back.

I sent it to Ady but she never said anything. I talked to her about it over Christmas and she didn't sound like she hadn't liked the picture so I'll take that as Ady approval.

It always amazes me how people still look like themselves even 20 years later. Nuala, you look adorable in that picture, and also remarkably you-like. I can't speak for your sister, though.
