Moon Intuition

Dec 28, 2010

I have always thought that my mom, my sister, and I had an unusual bond. My sister and I are exactly 2 years apart to the week and my mom is honestly best friend. I don’t know what I would do without all our daily talks (10 plus times a day), girl dinners, and clothes sharing. We all always seem to be exactly on the same page. So, I should not have been shocked when we all picked the same Christmas gift for each other. You see, my grandmother (my mom’s mom) died 9 years ago. Hard to believe because we all loved her so much and she was fairly young, 74 years old. Her maiden name was Moon, which if I ever have a daughter will be her middle name. Ever since she died we frequently see moons in the back ground of pictures of we take. No rhyme or reason, flash or no flash, they often show up in many family pictures. We like to think it is my grandmother smiling down on us and watching us. The day I checked into the hospital to have Sterling, they gave me a gown that had moons on it, so I knew my grandmother was there watching. Moons have a very special place in our hearts.

My mom, my sis and I all have the Jennifer Zeuner Initial Necklaces, it was my push present with Sterling’s initials.

I knew when JZ came out with some new designs and one was a moon with a ruby (my grandmother’s birthstone) it was meant to be for my mom’s Christmas gift. Apparently my mom had the same idea because she gave my sister and I the same necklace. How crazy is that?? I guess my grandmother was smiling down on us:)
