My Initials.

Scarf: TJ Maxx // Jeans: Silver // Sweatshirt: Old Navy // Sandals: Target // Necklace: c/o Lisa Leonard // Hair: this method

I love my initials.
There is a pun intended here.

I received this gem of a necklace in the mail from Lisa Leonard last week.
I haven't been able to take it off. I'm totally in love with it.
When I picked the two initials I wanted, I chose "a" and "d,"
for Annelise & Daniel, of course.
 Conveniently, my initials are AD.
So, after taking these pictures, my sister helped me rearrange the charms so it reads "a.d." when you look at it.
And even though I know what the AD means to me, this way you can make your own conclusions.

Like I said...
I l♥ve my initials.

amanda&graham said...

My initials are AW....to change to AL in September when I marry my love, GL...wow, AL. First time I've written that! Looks strange! I'll be AL! lol

Sarah said...

I like the initials for each member of my family: T om,A my, S eth, S arah. TASS! :)

God bless!!

The Pink Growl said...

I love these initial necklaces! So cute! I would like to get my soon to be new initials, which also could double for mine and my fiance's first name initials. N + S. Either way it works for me! :) Great giveaway!

Jess said...

I wish I had a super cool initial story to tell you, but mine are JN and there's no boo bear in my life (yet...) so who knows what they will end up being. I do love initial jewelry though, such a fun idea!

Tara St said...

My initials are TAS and they just tend to look nice in a monogram. I don't plan on changing my name when I get married because I like my name. I just can't ever imagine going by any other name.

Erin said...

I'm SUPER pumped for this giveaway because I have the same necklace you're rocking!! With an 'e' for me and a 'j' for my husband. I would love to have a new piece of jewelry with my initials of EM or EBM on there :)

Mrs. K said...

I like J + K, my husband is J and I'm K. Plus it makes me smile b/c it stands for joke, too which I'm not sure is funny or really sad. ;)

Rachel said...

My cousin's initials are DARN - quite possibly the funniest ones I've seen. One of my former students had the unfortunate pleasure of having BS for initials...

Stephanie @ bourbon and glitter said...

So cute! I love the a d idea, it's adorable. LOVE Lisa Leonard, she has such amazing stuff. My initials are SS so generally I get away with just one giant S initial on everything. I guess I could get a P for Peter, but my real love is my dog Hawkeye ;) So it'd probably be an H!

Cynd said...

For 28 years my initials have been CAB. Just two months ago after eight years of dating, they changed to CAM. I love them! I also love the initials of my husband, RSM, and a T for our fur baby, Taz! Love the scarf, I have i love for scarfs like you, they are so fun!

Breenah said...

SJQ - me, my husband, my daughter :D

Jill said...

My initials have always been JSS - they didn't change when I got married.

lauren@warmandfuzzy said...

I had an initial necklace for my boys but it broke :( would love a new one :)

Mine would be E&B for Eli & Ben
love lisa!

Shelby said...

Oh my god, I'm in love with that necklace. That is SO cute!!:)

Lex said...

I want an "A" for me, and a "B" for my husband. :)

Lindsay @ Trial By Sapphire said...

Coincidentally, my husband's first initial is the same as my maiden name initial. :-)

Allena Mistral said...

When you put mine and my guy's initials together, it spells RA (Ryan and Alli). I kinda love the restaurant RA, so it makes me happy :)

Amanda said...

A & E! Mine and erics! And lookin gorgeous as always!

Nikki said...

LOVE your hair in this photo and the one from your parents' friend's wedding. Can you do a how-to on your bye bye behive blog?! Thanks!

Elisabeth Gee said...

My initials are EG. If I end up marrying somebody that's last name starts with G. My initials will be EGG. Cute, right? ;)

Elizabeth, The Young Retiree said...

My full initials are EIO and my hubby's initials are EDO, so I like our monogram the most {eOe}, and we call ourselves Esquared! I think it's the most fun ever! We actually have kids names picked starting with E too... that is probably taking it too far, but we're crazy like that :D

Shane said...

Mine are pretty boring, SHP :)

jess said...

My fiance and I have the same first and middle initial - "J" and "A" - when we getting married we will have the same exact initials... J.A.G. :)

Jenna said...

My boyfriend and I have the same first initial so I love J&J :)

Lindsay said...

I don't have a man in my life right now but if I did, I'm sure I would love our initials most! But for now, I'd have to say I just love my own initials - LPD :)

Tanya said...

Oh I love Lisa's Jewelry! I love my husbands and my initials, A- Alex T-Tanya G- Grasley. :)

{two.shades.of.lovely} said...

There is no real special combo of my family's initials, BUT our last name begins with Q - and that in itself is pretty awesome! Everything "Q" (wood letters, keychains, etc.) are always on sale, plus, so many cute ways to draw a Q!

Allyson Butler said...

...as vain as it sounds, I looove my initials. When I monogram Allyson Camille Butler, it's ABC - and I think that's adorable!

Tiffany said...

I would get my initials. After calling off an engagement I walked around with the wrong intials on a lot of things (like my suitcase & towels) so now I enjoy having my own initials on things.

Grace Lynne Fleming said...

I would definitely need a G and a J in honor of my upcoming wedding to Justin! ;)

Danielle said...

Isn't Lisa Leonard just fabulous? I love reading her blog daily and her jewelry is amazing! I have the devoted bracelet and tiny twig necklace.

Okay so my boyfriend is Q and my initial is D. Together we make DQ, like Dairy Queen :)

Jessica Day said...

Ah!

I love it when people call me JJ.

:)

Tori Anne said...

My maiden name makes my initals TAG and I always loved it:)

Leslie Marquez said...

I love my kids initials because they all have the same middle name and last name. ETM, KTM, GTM and NTM. Their middle name is my maiden name. Its a Spanish tradition that my husband clued me into when we first had kids and I love it because they have a piece of both our families names in there!

Jaime said...

I love my Initials. JMC. I was named after my grandfather on one side, and grandmother on the other. =)

Kristin Fleck said...

I'm honestly still adjusting to my new initials! When I get married, my intials changed from KMB to KMF, and it's weird :)

Mamasita said...

I would do my daughters initials "Josie Kay" JK
:)

Laura said...

Call me selfish, but I love my initials LET because I used to play tennis and there's a tennis term called "let." Plus the whole "tennis-ketter" last name. (yep, that's how you say it.)

Meghan said...

My favorite initials are IAL for the baby girl I lost :) Isobel Arjana!

What's funny is we have another girls name and boys name picked so they too can be IAL when the time comes. I think I'll stick to those initials for all my children :)

MacKensie said...

My initials are MMG! I go by my middle name as opposed to my first name, Mary, so it's funny how confused people get. The same first letters doesn't help the confusion. ;)

Nicole said...

My favorite initials are mine and my boys {N & D}. Lisa's jewelry is so amazing. I started my own handmade jewelry business not to long ago, so it's always nice to find others and use them as inspiration and motivation. Thanks so much. I'm your newest follower!

Preciousck4330 said...

My favorite initials are J+C and they have two meanings. C is for me of course and the J is for two people. My dad who passed away last year and for my boyfriend. :)

Jessica Who? said...

JT! my husband and i both have the initials JT :)

Emily Gates said...

My favorite initials are E&C

tricia said...

My favorite initial is N, for my daughter's first name. :)

Sarah B said...

I would love to get my dogs initials on something!! Sounds cheesy but they are my kids so their initials would be "J" and "L" :)

Brittany Pigg said...

My initials are BP like the gas station. Lol

Celeste said...

I suppose my favorite initials have to be my own (I'm not married... and thus I do not have any kids). I love my name (my parents did good!) ;) so I am proud of my initials: CHW

KB @ kiss, laugh, and dream said...

My initials are KBH, but my mom has always referred to me as KB for Kirstin Brooke, so that's what I go by on my blog and a lot of people call me that now. :)

Myra said...

My initials pre-marriage were MAS and now they are MSA. I moved my last name to my middle name to keep a tie to my family name :) So, those are my favorite initials! I use all three for everything!

Kelli said...

You look so gorgeous Miss Annelise!

Trisha @ 3 Four and Under said...

My initials are TAB, my husband is C and my kids are A,S,and Z

Thanks to both of you for such an awesome giveaway!

Melissa said...

I want my husband's initials....SS! Mine are MS...not very awesome

Leigh-Ellen said...

I tend to sign things off to anyone I know for longer than an hour as LE. I think of myself by my first name and still forget my last name's changed sometimes (after nearly 4 years)

Ashlee Danielle said...

I went from AE to AJ. My husbands initals are CJ. I love my daughters initals because they aren't super common together, I think, HJ!

whitneyfreeman said...

I would get the Initials J & W for my sweet man and myself =]
I love necklaces like this but its a constant way to remind yourself of the person you love all day!!

Amber M. said...

My initials are AM.

I'd want FMO though for my bittle loves.

Alle said...

Hmmm...initials, huh...

Well, mine would be AM
Or if I did my little family, we'd have N A A C

But my favorite combo of initials is for our little family mantra of "No Matter What" - unconditional love from Jesus and unconditional love between us! That would be NMW!

FrugalFoodieMama said...

I would have C & J for my daughter and my son. <3

Lily Garay said...

Eyelashes are looking good:)
