Week 51 - Caught up, woohoo!!! Another gift


This is a special gift. My nephew just returned from 15 months in Iraq. His wife is also in the military going to medical school, stationed in Hawaii. While he was in Iraq, we purchased land in the Adirondack mountains. He was jealous, and asked us to find another piece for he and his wife! We did that, we found a piece a mile from ours. 20 minutes away is the Herkimer Diamond Mines. This is the one and only thing the two of them own, as they will be moving around in the military, but they will always have 'a place' in the mountains. The stone in this piece is an exquisite Herkimer Diamond I purchased earlier this year. I thought a most fitting gift for her would be a little piece of the earth, close to where their property is, as she may never actually 'see' the property itself!!
