The L.

For the past 4 years I have worn a small pave diamond "L" on a super fine silver chain around my neck. My L necklace. My husband (who at the time was just  my boyfriend) gave it to me at our first Christmas together. I never take it off. It's not too big, or blingy, as people would expect from me, its just a small unpronounced L. I love my L necklace...


I've given up wearing any other necklaces for the past 4 years because I simply don't want to take off my L necklace. It goes with everything, and it's a part of who I am.

So yesterday when I noticed a little knot above the pendant, I very hesitantly took it off and handed it to my husband to fix. He assured me it would be no big deal. Before I know it he whisked off, necklace in hand on a mission to get the knot out. I walked out of Kay's room, and headed to the grocery store to pick up a few things I still needed for dinner....

Fast forward to this morning.

It didn't take long after I woke up to realize that the L wasn't there. I instantly thought to myself...Oh no! Where is it? But I rest assured that my hubby had fixed it and put it in a safe place. I looked in the bathroom thinking he probably put it in there. No L. He was still sleeping so I had to wait till he woke up to find out where he put it.

I headed to boot camp and when I got home I asked him where he put my L necklace. His mouth dropped, eyes widened, and he made a gasp. He immediately patted his pockets. WTF?! This is not good. He said he fixed the knot, but wasn't sure where he put it.

WHAT???!!! You lost my necklace?

to his defense he does have a terrible memory. Needless to say, I've been searching and searching all day asking myself "If I were a small dainty L necklace, where would I be?" Short answer is ON MY NECK, real answer is I don't know :( He's re traced his steps, played it over in his head, and just doesn't know what he did with it. It's so small, and the chain is so fine, that it makes it easy to lose.

All day I couldn't help but think about Carrie Bradshaw and when she lost her beloved Carrie necklace on SATC.....


She was lost without it remember? Well today I am Carrie Bradshaw. Alex (the sexy Russian artist) even gave her a "replacement" Carrie necklace (remember it was 6 crystals on a chain to represent each letter in her name) Yeah nice and all but not the same. It wasn't Carrie necklace. The moment she found it was so profound in so many ways. It was like she found herself again. The story ended great for her....and I'm still hoping. Pray I find it!

I hate what that happens. My mom gave me a necklace with my birthstone in it for my birthday a few years ago and I lost it.

I hope you find it soon!!!
