"So since you started your business I've always known i wanted to create/design a necklace that meant something to me. I don't wear much jewelry so this would have to be something I would want to wear all the time, matches with anything and represents everything that's important to me in one piece. I had ideas of creating something race related with my race time engraved on it but I knew these PRs were just stepping stones and my times would (hopefully) continue to get better. Then I thought about creating something that represented me as a mom/Ty. I just couldn't decide what way I wanted to go. When you came out with your love notes/work of art line I KNEW that's what I would get. I had the idea I would wait till Ty could write his name and then have that engraved. Then, a few weeks ago Ruddley and Ty were at the dining room table one Saturday morning coloring. I was upstairs but kept hearing ty talk about "drawing mama". I finally went down and Ty jumped up and said "look mama! I drew a pitch-er (picture) of you runnin'!" The drawing brought me to tears and at that moment I knew that's what I wanted on my necklace. It represented what I love most in my life, running and more importantly being a mom. Then I added Ty's initials to represent him and the rest is history. What I really love is that he associates me with running, a healthy and positive outlet in life. While I love running, balancing it with being a mom and wife can be challenging at times. I don't ever want running to become more of a priority then time with my family but it is something I love and many times requires sacrifices on my part to make it happen (hello 3:45am alarm clock, it's run time!). Thank you so much for creating something that I will wear everyday and represents so many important things in my life!"
