Giveaway No. 11 // Silpada Cross Necklace

One of my favorite people in the world is Ryann Kroske.


A few years back, Ryann and Valerie (two of Amelia and my Young Life girls) came all the way to St. Simons Island Georgia to celebrate my wedding!  I felt so blessed.  And not only am I blessed by Ryann, but I am also continually blessed by her sweet family.

Enter Suzi Kroske.

Not only did Ryann’s mother Suzi allow us to host a bridal shower for Whitney at their beautiful Greenville home back in 2009, but also—she is a smart, accomplished business woman with Silpada Designs—a jewelry company!

And today, for the second-to-last giveaway, I’m so excited to offer one lucky Growing Up Gibson Reader (or his girlfriend/sister/wife) a beautiful sterling silver sideways cross necklace. It’s a perfect reminder of what this season is really about.

I purchased this necklace for myself a few months ago, and dag-nab-it—our dog Cooper snapped it in two after just a week!  Boo. But I loved it so much, because the cross rests inconspicuously on it’s side, and is a perfect conversation piece.
