Santiago and I bought this rose while we were on our honeymoon on the Amalfi Coast. We found this in Ravello at Museo del Corallo. For our first anniversary, Santiago had the rose made into a necklace, wrapped it up in a sweet little box, and gave it to me as a gift. Although he thinks that it actually took him a few years, and that he really gave it to me on our third anniversary. Who’s counting, right?! I remember it as a first anniversary present and it makes for a more touching story, so we’ll go with my version. I’m pretty sure that this is the store where we bought it. But I’ve already shown our memories to be faulty, so who really knows!
Next week, Sunday, February 1, a new garment by me! This time, a skirt.
