What this would mean to me is that I would have a wonderful gift to present my sister. My baby sister and the only sister I have is finally getting married and I'm just tickled pink.

I think this would be just the perfect gift for her as she loves simple and silver and that is what this necklace says to me... perfect for her :)

Thanks for the giveaway. And I've done all the things asked :)

I "like" both pages on FB, follow both blogs and WOW...what a wonderful necklace!! I remember thinking how cool it would be when I became MRS. Harlien...to have this necklace would be an awesome keepsake. Most of the personalized jewelry is for our dear kiddos, to celebrate my amazing husband...pretty cool!!

I love the look of the blog...it is perfect!1

I already "like" Ben & Kate, I now "Like" Fine & Fleurie. Now I follow their Blog as well- thanks for the suggestion even if I don't win I see me getting one of these lovely necklaces.
I love Handstamped jewelery & this one would go with my BLOG's name-YAY!

Christine Kohler said...

Ive been a follower for a while (Prayers for ben on FB) and this blog. I also just liked and Am following fleurie on Facebook/Blog!

This neckless would mean a lot to me espically because my Mr. & I are both in the military. I am a firefighter and I am unable to wear my rings while on shift (well cause of all those scary signs with ripping the flesh from your bone YUCK) BUT I am allowed to wear necklesses! This would be perfect for me to wear on days when I am unable to wear my ring because Uncle Sam told me I Cant.

This would mean the world to me because I LOVE to show off my last name. I have been happily married for almost 6 years and last year my husband and I didn't get to celebrate because we had a 1 week old new addition to our family!

Winning the necklace to me would be a sign to the world saying how much I love being my husband's wife. I believe everyday it is an honor to be his wife and to be spending the rest of my life with him is truly a dream come true.

A Little Bit of Me said...

Your page is fantastic! I just started decorating our bedroom in these colors and they go great together!

This necklace giveway would be mean so much to me. My husband and I were married 4 years & 10 days ago. We have been out of the USMC for almost a year and what a transition it is. NO ONE tells you how hard it is to go from Active Duty to civilian. Luckily we are on the upswing and while the past year has been a battle of patience, trust and love my husband is finally starting to come out of his depression and while I've always stood by him I finally feel like he can stand by me and support me too.

ps. always praying for you two!

Winning this necklace would be an amazing thing for me. My husband and I have been married for 6 and a half years, and we have never been able to afford something nice and personalized like this. It has never been a necessity, but it is something I have wanted for myself for some time. To be able to have that special item that, when we finally renew our vows and have our wedding with all our family and friends, I can wear and feel special that I have that piece of jewelery to show how proud I am to be his wife. It's one of those pieces that I would wear often.

Margaret said...

I have been following your blog for a while now and I am now also following "Fine and Fleurie"'s blog. I have liked both of the facebook pages also. Winning the necklace would mean that I get to show my husband how proud I am to be his wife! It is our 2nd anniverary on June 20th and this would be the perfect anniversary present. I am so inspired by your love and commitment to Ben! Best of luck to both of you!

I follow you!

Lindsay said...

I have done all the "steps" like the previous commenters have mentioned, I have followed your blog for awhile and am working up the strength to start my own. The design is great, I love the yellow, so bright and positive!

I would love to win this necklace because I am marrying the man of my dreams this October. We met on Eharmony a year and a half ago and we believe we are truly meant for one another. There are times reading your blog that I wonder if I could ever have the amount of love and patience for Mitch that you have for Ben. You are an inspiration, not because of the accident or because of the roads you have traveled, but simply because your love for your husband truly knows no bounds, and that, Katie, is inspiring.

*stepping off my soapbox*
Thanks for listening!

What this necklace would mean to me......that staying committed to my husband is an achievement that happens one day at a time. ;)

Amelia Ruth said...

Gosh, you guys already have a ton of comments! But I liked both so I'll toss my comment in here too. :P

I would LOVE this necklace as a beautiful reminder of my sweets and all we're gonna get through from here on out. We're getting married on July 16th and just days after we marry he will be leaving (possibly across the country) to finish the rest of his training...at this point we're not sure how long we'll be apart but it could be months, and it will be during our first period of time as newlyweds! I love my sweetie, and I love his family more than anything else, so having a daily reminder of my beautiful "second family" and perfect hubs (to be!) would be just...awesome!

Plus I really want this and with all of the other stuff we've got saving up for, it's gonna take me months to actually order one myself. :P Hahaha.

Verena said...

I would LOVE to win this cute necklace bc it would remind me of him every day..every hour..every minute when he's gone ( he's in the military too ).

Karen118 said...

I have been following both your blogs and you two have been such an inspiration to us all! I would love to win this necklace as it would be a reminder of how lucky we are to have found each other again (we started as friends that drifted apart several years ago and long behold we are getting married next year!) and how important it is to have love and give love everyday! :)

erin said...

Oh this is so perfect. I would just love to give this to our babysitter, who was more like a sister. We just moved and miss her so. My daughter (4 years old) asks me, can I type to Miss Hillary on facebook? How do you spell "love you, miss you?" Anyways, she's getting married this month and this is perfection. :-)

Mellissa said...

I love this necklace. I am proud of my last name and more importantly of the awesome husband that God provided for me. I "liked" the facebook page & have been praying for you & Ben for a few months. It is wonderful to hear about your days. Thanks!
