Well, it’s official — the honeymoon is over and we’re back in Chicago. Readjusting to the 14 hour time change has been tough and I’ve been waking up much earlier than normal which has me wishing I was a morning person all the time. It’s crazy how productive I’ve been from 6-9am!
The trip was amazing and memorable and a great way to kick off our married life. For our last night out in Tokyo, I wore this bird-printed dress and these low heels (great for walking in) and the Monica Rich Kosann necklaces that I’d been sporting the entire trip. Rob and I love to travel and are so thankful to have had this opportunity and time to take a big trip like this.
Last April, I had the chance to meet Monica Rich Kosann and her team and hear her story. She’s such an inspiring and talented woman and her goal of creating a product that represents and tells your own personal story is what really drew me to her pieces. I love wearing a piece of jewelry that has a story behind it and for me, these pieces tell the story of who Rob and I are as a couple and remind me of all the things we’ve done together.
For us, travel is something that’s strengthened our relationship and brought us closer over the years. The first necklace is engraved with “Carpe Diem” and reminded me to really enjoy each day to the fullest, explore and try new things while we were there and to do the same when we’re back home. The second one is a “Travel” Compass Key that reminded me of all the places that my life with Rob has taken me and where it will take us in the future. I love that these necklaces are delicate and timeless and can we worn on their own or layered. Best of all is what they remind me of and the feeling I get when I wear or see them.
While this week continues and I catch up on sleep, errands and work projects, these beauties will be a constant reminder of the memories we recently made and an encouragement to keep seeking out amazing adventures!
