Race for The Cure

I just completed my 13th annual Susan G Komen Race For The Cure 5K.IMG_0767

Susan GKomen is the only organization that addresses breast cancer on multiple fronts such as research, community health, global outreach and public policy initiatives in order to make the biggest impact against this disease.

Finding a cure for breast cancer is a cause that is near and dear to my heart.  My Aunt Dorothy is a survivor of this dreadful disease, which I am forever grateful.  She is one of my favorite people on this earth.

Aunt Dorothy, Favorite Aunt Ever

From these wonderful volunteers that are along the 5K course to cheer us on:

Anne Koplik Swarovski® Celebration Heart Love Charm Bangle Bracelet BBG013TAZ

That the heart is symbolic of love and passion isn’t surprising. Ancient Greek and Roman thinkers, including Aristotle, thought the organ was the center of all emotions.

Gigi & Sugar

This week ilovethatgift.com is featuring designer jewelry by Gigi & Sugar.

IMG_0763

This handcrafted line of jewelry is designed and produced by Wendy Willey in Waynesville, North Carolina.

In 2002 Wendy was diagnosed with Lyme Disease and as she struggled with atrophy in her hands she realized the importance and need to keep them strong. This need, coupled with her passion and creativity became the driving force behind the launch of Gigi & Sugar.

IMG_0762

Rob and Wendy Willey

Why the name Gigi & Sugar?

Wendy and Rob have four grandchildren (number 5 on the way).  Wendy is known as Gigi to her grands. And Rob… Wendy always said that Rob would be called “Sugar” by his grandchildren because he is so sweet. While he is not so sure about that, the name “Sugar” has stuck.

December Blues

December’s birthstones offer three ways to fight the winter blues: tanzanite, zircon and turquoise – all of them, appropriately, best known for beautiful shades of blue.

These gems range from the oldest on earth (zircon), to one of the first mined and used in jewelry (turquoise), to one of the most recently discovered (tanzanite).

Whatever your style preference or budget, one of December’s three birthstones will match your true blue desires.

ilovethatgift.com presents:
