A Special Gift.

This spoon has been in my family for generations. And after receiving it from my grandmother many, many years ago, my mother thoughtfully bestowed this beautiful heirloom to me yesterday before giving me one final hug goodbye and wishing me luck.

That moment is one that I will never forget.

While my moving up here may be the start of a new chapter in my life, it's also a meaningful return back to some of my deepest ancestral roots. Both sides of my family have a long, rich history in and around the 5 boroughs and I love knowing that I'm only continuing the legacy of a tradition that has served to influence and shape me in ways that I can't even imagine.

P.S. Totally love the old school font printed on that gorgeous Tiffany blue pouch.
