Pictures On Gold

I was given products in this post to test and give my honest feedback.  All opinions are my own.
Welcome to the 2015 Simply Me Holiday Gift guide!  The holidays should be fun.  At times finding the perfect gift, great deals, decorating and recipes can be overwhelming.  The Simply Me Blog wants to put the fun back into the Holidays so over the next several weeks I will be posting great gifts for everyone, decorating tips, recipes and everything in-between!

A letter to My Lucy,
Dearest Lucy,
You know pretty girl I still cry when someone says your name.  I can't tell them how you got sick without breaking down.  I still walk into the house and forget you aren't going to be there to greet me.  I still put my hand under the table at dinner to try and sneak you a treat.  At night I find myself reaching down to scratch your head.  You have no clue how many times I reached for your leash to take you for a walk.  I miss your wagging tail and the sweet look that crossed your face when you were happy.  I miss your excited little barks and I even miss your tail whipping the back of my leg.  I miss our adventures, I miss having someone to walk with me to the mail box & bus stop.  I miss your goofiness.  You were the only one who knew I was crazy and loved me anyway.  I miss that unconditional love, Louie girl.  I miss you.  You will be gone for a year on December 23 and yet you are still very much alive in my heart.
I hope you know that you are loved.  I hope I gave you the life that you deserved.  You are now my furry little angel, and I know you had to go.  I just wish my heart wasn't so broken in your absence.
I love you

My Lucy had to be put down last year on December 23.  This isn't the first pup I had to let go, but this was the first one I had since she was a baby.  She was my first baby.  I had to wake up at night to take care of her when she cried, teach her manners, show her how to walk up steps & get back down, I was entrusted to show her the world, to give her a good/happy life.  She was never my responsibly she was always a gift.  One that I cherished and cared for every day.  She was my companion. 

Losing her broke something inside of me.  A small innocence that I didn't even realize I was holding onto.  Knowing she looked at me to protect her and make all the bad things go away and the fact that this time I just couldn't do it broke me.

I left her go, not because I wanted too.  No I didn't because she was in pain and I would never make my best friend suffer for my own selfishness. 
This last year has been rough. I hung so many photos of her, got her a grave plaque and did everything else I could think of to memorialize her.
When I leave my house though I have nothing.  Well I had nothing thanks to Pictures on Gold I can always take a small piece of her with me
I got a locket to put our photo on the inside! 
The photo is from a day last summer that her and I spent outside together.  My hubby and boys were off at some sort of game and we decided to have a girls day outside!

 The back readers
"My Lucy
Always in my Heart"

I love the tiny paw print on the front.  

This Locket is only one of the many items offered at Pictures on Gold.  And the way I customized mine is only one of the many ways to personalize them.

I had mine made so I could always keep My Lucy's photo near my heart.  But you could do so much.  They would make a super cute mother's day gift or even a Christmas gift!  

My Lucy may no longer be with me in life, but at least now I can carry a small piece of her with me always.
