In the summer of 1987 I was busily preparing for my August wedding. I stopped by an Osco Drug Store and ran in to grab a couple of items. Walking by the magazine rack, this issue caught my eye. I picked it up and began looking through the pages. What happened next was a moment that forever seared my mind, it was as if I had an awakening. I realize this sounds a bit dramatic, but honestly, at that moment it was if I had stepped into a foreign land but had arrived home all at the same time. Looking back on it now, I consider it a gift from God that He took that moment to show me what it would be that I would come to love; beauty, family, elegance, vintage...the list could go on and on.
So my love affair with Victoria magazine began and I happily found myself devouring every issue. As a new bride it helped me to see home and family in a whole new way. I started to develop a love for cameos which were oftened featured in their pictures. When the arrival of my son came three years later, my husband surprised me with this beautiful ring.
Not long after my daughter was born, four years later, my Grandmother passed away. This cameo, belonging to her was given to me. These two pieces of jewelry mean a great deal to me and I hope to pass them on to future grandchildren. Who would have thought that a trip into a local drugstore and a magazine, would develop a love that would lead to a family heirloom?
