The seasons are changing again. It's not quite fall-ish here yet but give it a week or two and all my favorites of the season will return. I love symbols of change in my jewelry. As I've gone through the season of my life transitions from raising children to see them grow into young women and soon they will be leaving home, I found myself needing to celebrate that life doesn't stand still and the changes are part of the process and should be embraced.
My favorite song is Landslide by Fleetwood Mac. It rings more true every year.
"Can I handle the seasons of my life?
Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older I'm getting older too
Yes I'm getting older too...
So I sneak leaves into my jewelry, and butterflies and flowers that fade.
And a little sweet melancholy for your Friday afternoon:
