Okay, so it’s kind of silly, but in a sweet sort of way. Bob and I have been married for 25 years and have an empty nest this year, so we’re sort of . . . dare I say, “happy” about it? We sadly counted 10 couples we know who have just gone through or are going through a divorce now and most have children close to the age of leaving home. It makes me hold my head and cry for them. It also makes us feel incredibly blessed to still be in love and able to tolerate each other most days.
We honeymooned on Martha’s Vineyard and also returned for our 10 year anniversary, so we’ve been in love with New England for a long time. When we moved to Fairhope, AL we said it reminded us of a cross between Martha’s Vineyard and Mayberry. I’ve come to love the accessory and clothing line, Kiel James Patrick, located in Rhode Island because it has that nautical/cool New England vibe.
So, here’s what I ordered from KJP. Ready for a sugar overload? It’s a bracelet for me with nautical flags with Bob’s initials. “OOOOoohhhhh! That’s so sweet!”
Don’t roll your eyes yet, because it gets better . . . I got him a matching bracelet that has my monogram! It’s one step away from carving our names in a tree.
KJP started out as an accessories company featuring their famous anchor and rope design bracelet for both men and women. KJP has expanded to include fresh, all-American style clothing. Their handsome toddler Harry, often makes an appearance in the photos that are beautiful and have earned the couple over 1 million followers on their Instagram pages.
I absolutely love their line of dresses, which you know I’ve always
whined about mentioned how hard it is to find a good dress, although I do wish they’d give an option for one with a few inches more added to the skirt length. (I just think it’s mean of me and my friends of a certain age to embarrass the younger girls with our awesome legs like that).
I don’t have an affiliate association with KJP, I just wanted to share a great company with you. They seem like a sweet family who has fun with what they do. If you have a sweetheart, I hope you are planning a sweetie-sweet sugary Valentine’s Day! And if you are solo, I hope you have a day of remembering all those who think you are fabulous and treat yourself to something wonderful.
