{Borrowed Blessings}

Dear Bride-to-Be:
There are lots of stories in wedding folklore about brides receiving good luck if they wear a "borrowed" something from someone for their wedding day. So borrowing a piece of jewelry or a handbag or headpiece from a friend or family member for your wedding day provides you blessings from them as well as a beautiful accessory to use.

Continue the tradition. Offer another bride-to-be an item from your wedding, perhaps for her “something borrowed.” However, if she already has all she needs, it’s okay; you are offering her your blessings, and they are a keepsake forever.

Love. Listen. Let go.
....with love from Cornelia
