Coming Home

My favorite time of the day is when Brian comes home from work. It's always so good to just snuggle up to him after a long day.

He always looks so happy to see me, as if we haven't seen one another in a while, and it gives me a warm hum inside. A husband that treasures you is like gold! I want to glam up this weekend and take him out somewhere fancy - just got to figure out where. But I know what I'd like to wear! Jewelry from Jamie's Jewels.

Jamie's lovely Etsy store is stocked to the brim with a diverse collection of unique jewelry. Her personal motto is to create "something for everyone", and her store definitely reaches that goal. With her recent inspirations coming from animals and sea creatures, her latest summer collection is full of darling pieces perfect for summer dates or dinners with girlfriends.

Etsy first captured Jamie's interest when she was introduced to it by her sister, an Etsy fanatic :) . Jamie had been creating jewelry for a while and always had the idea in mind to sell her own pieces, and Etsy proved to be the perfect avenue for that when she opened her store in March of last year.

Jamie's inspiration is also drawn from her home. She lives in a quiet wooded area, the perfect environment to think, reflect and create, and yet she also has fast access to the local restaurants and culture in town. She also loves that her little corner of New Jersey is known for it's great schools - which is a definite plus for someone with a little one.

Jamie is generously giving away a pair of Silver Teardrop Hoops to one lucky reader. To enter, please leave a comment here letting me know what your favorite thing is about coming home. I will announce the winner on Sunday.

lovely earrings! My favorite thing about coming home is the way my daughter reacts. She is old enough now to recognize my voice before I even get far enough in to see her so she starts squealing when I walk through the door. Then the kisses and hugs and snuggles come flowing out and I love that time every day!

Kris said...

Very cute collection!

My favorite thing about coming home is that you can rest...sometimes going places if fun, but not restful...home is a place where you can kick back and put your feet up!

When I come home, I love the peacefulness and the silence. No phones, no noisy (or nosey) co-workers, no deadlines. And the toughest decision I have to make is "what to have for dinner."

Thank you for the chance!

I only get to go home to Los Angeles about once or twice a year... but when I do it is all sorts of glorious! I love landing in LAX, finding my dad's parked car, heading home to a sleepy mom and video game playing brother, and looking in the fridge for what they had for dinner that day and eating the leftovers (my flight always comes in late at night). My mom always buys fresh pastries/bread from a Korean bakery by our home and that's more than enough to welcome me home!

What beautiful jewelry! I love the silver hoops.

I am in college and I love love love going home! My mom always cooks my favorite meal and we sit at home and scrapbook for hours. I love getting up in the morning with coffee waiting on me (mine just NEVER tastes as good as my moms!) and reading the paper with my dad! I also love just running around and doing errands with my mom! So so fun!

my favourite thing about coming home is being greeted by my ragdoll kitty named Bellini. He is my furbaby and just seeing him at the door waiting for me makes my day.

Me and my ladies all anxiously await the return of my hubby at the end of every work day. It really is the best part of the day!

Tender Branson said...

So, decided yet where you are going to take him?

Kristin said...

such pretty jewelry! good find, D! My favorite thing about coming home? It's a three-way tie: my adorable puppy waiting to greet me at the door with her tail a-wagging, hearing the giggles and coos coming from up the steps of my darling babies, and seeing my darling hubby standing in the kitchen waiting for me. So lovely to have family. I'm so lucky.

My favorite thing about coming home is how my three youngest siblings come running up to hug and kiss me and tell me how much they missed me...even if I've only been gone for 30 minutes:)

my favourite thing about coming home is the feeling of total relaxation! You have someone there who loves you, you can cozy up in front of the television with little expectations :)

Aw I can totally picture you and Brian holding each other so tightly and warmly when he returns from the coolest job on earth. So sweet:)

My favorite thing about coming home is to see my girls' smile - it makes me so happy every single day!

Tali Schiffer said...

I agree, a husband (or partner...) who treasures you, and is always happy at your site, sure is like gold!!
I find myself in a gitty state when I know I'm coming home to my guy there (though we sometimes work opposite shifts, and when I get home, he's left for work...)

Heather Taylor said...

I love the smell of coming home. Home always smells distinctly like something warm and enveloping and it is such a delight for me!

Maricela said...

I love to come home because it means, for my kids, no more being cooped up in the car--they can run! (They are 2 yrs old, 1 yr old, and 4 months. It makes me happy to see them excited to be home and have home be a "fun" place again after a trip out. :)

Love these! Coming home to me means comfort. Thanks for the chance!

When I lived out of town, I always loved the drive over the bridge into my home town. The city scape is small but wonderful.

CarolineB said...

My favourite thing has to be my dog's reaction. She knows the sound of my car and starts to bark immediately. She then greets me like she hasn't seen me in months!

aw, woman... the first lines makes me want to marry someone already (LOL), I mean, well that definitely sounds wonderful and you know that, right?

and all those jewelries are gorgeous. My favorite thing about coming back home? It's how I can have weird and silly conversation with my daddy and watch my parents interact with each other, lol.

I love getting out of my tailored work clothes and lazing around in a robe or track pants.

my favorite thing about coming home is squeezing my husband and taking a big whiff of his guy-scent, immediately followed by relieving my poor feet of wearing three inch heels all day long. ahhh...

Gaia said...

I had the same feeling today. I wasn't home for 2 days and this afternoon I come back. I opened the door and there was Mr B that cover me in a big hug...this is what about coming back home!

Bri said...

Do you guys actually have a volkswagon bug or was it just fun to draw?

My favorite thing about coming home is being with my family. :)

Carissa said...

what gorgeous pieces! I'm in love with that baroque crystal necklace and those gold disc earrings. very glam indeed!

unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, I work from home. so the whole "coming home" ritual is not quite the same for me. lately when I come home it is after a loooong meeting or hours at the office laying out the paper, and I'm just exhausted! I sink into the couch and sometimes rant a bit too much to the boy.

I definitely think it would be nice sometimes not to work from home, just so that I can really have that "coming home, end of the work day" feeling :)

Carissa said...

A P.S.- I forgot to say that I DO have one of the best door greeters ever-- Hazel! :)

Love your blog.
My favorite thing about coming home is when my 3 year old daughter runs out into the garage in her pajamas, bearfoot and messy hair to meet me, before I get a chance to get out of my car. Also seeing my hubby and the sweet smile on his face.

The thing that I love most about coming home is the familiar, warm inviting smell that only my home has. I am immediately calmed whenn I walk in the front door and leave the stress of the "outside world "
