I chose this quote, because to me the word sweetheart is universal. It’s about the people that remind of us of A.A. Mine’s famous words forever captured as a quote from Christopher Robin to Winnie the Pooh.
Our ‘Sweethearts’ lift us up, rally when we need them to, hold our hands, and sit quietly offering their presence when we have no words. Spouse, partner, family, friend, all of these can be our sweet heart. A giving heart.
One such friend, a very very dear friend of mine L, is exactly this for me. She is a sweetheart! She is selfless and goes above and beyond to help her friends often to her own detriment. But that is who she is, and that is why she is such a dear. We all have friends like this. As I have said before, I am more than lucky to count these friends on more than one hand, and to have another sweetheart in my husband, KSP.
When my friend L told me about her friend Christine’s beautiful “Sweetheart” necklace, I had seen another one of her necklaces before and loved it (they were on the Bachelor, we won’t digress into my watching that show, please do not think less of me:)), and so I went to take a look.
I love my friend L to pieces and so in honor of her and her friendship, I thought it might be a nice thing to share the spirit of our bond and friendship by offering all of you the chance to recommend a friend who has been a sweetheart to you. Through good and/or bad. Ups and downs. Rights and Wrongs. Old or new. There are no restrictions or parameters.
Leave a comment here, telling me why your friend is or has a sweet heart, or why your sweetheart is deserving of this awesome necklace and on Monday of next week, I will announce who the winner is and share your story, here and on the ‘mynewfavoriteday’ Facebook page.
I do love these stories, because your comments and sentiments warm my heart. Friendship has been a beautiful gift in my life at every point. My sweet heart friends are all amazing, but I also want to tell my own story and I will be getting one of these necklaces myself for the person I am about to tell the story about.
She is an amazing sweet heart. She is my Sister-in-Law. For the past few years I watch as she selflessly supports her husband who has had a number of health issues as well as her 3 grown daughters, one of whom recently had a baby and is living with her and her husband. Her eldest daughter is getting married this year and on top of working and all the other things I just mentioned, she is spearheading the planning of her daughter’s wedding. She gives and gives and never asks for anything in return. She continues to amaze and inspire me, and to not only her family, to her friends as well, she is the ultimate “Sweet heart” and has the sweetest of hearts.
I can’t wait to hear your stories. Long or short, happy or sad. Let’s give our “sweet hearts” some love. If you don’t win the necklace but have someone in mind, you can use the promotional code NEWFAV15 on Christine’s site and receive 15% off site wide through Friday. They might make a lovely new mom, birthday, shower, just because, surprise.
To win the necklace, here are the rules:
1. Leave a comment here telling me about a person with a sweet heart in your life.

If you share on FB or Twitter, please let me know that you did here so I can keep a tally.
Why you ask? Because, it spreads the love. It shows the friends and family that we love, that we care about them. And this community is all about sharing and caring! Let the sharing and caring begin, it will most certainly help make today ‘anewfavoriteday!’
