Some of the greatest love stories involve two people who love each other enough to simply choose one another regardless of material wealth. A tiny token is sometimes enough to become the symbol of such a union. Silly Simone Accessories creator Alita Daniels shares how her fur shawl is a constant reminder of her journey with her husband.
Who: Alita Daniels, Owner/Creator of Silly Simone Accessories
What: A beautiful brown fur shawl
The sentiment: I’ve worn this fur shawl every year when my hubby and I go out to celebrate our anniversary. This year will make four years in December. I started that tradition because it helps me realize how far we’ve come. We’ve been together off and on for a total of 16 years, maybe more, but when we got married neither of us had much money. We didn’t have a wedding but we dressed nicely and went to the court house. I found the fur shawl earlier in the week and someone gave me a great deal on it. Also my mom wore a fur the day she and my dad married and that’s what makes this piece so sentimental to me.
