During the Blue Plum Festival, I had a customer request a custom for this adorable hoop to give to her husband for Father's Day.
The story goes like this: when he was a little boy he would ask his mother how much she loved him. His mother would reply " I love you to the Bluff City bridge and back." Although this particular bridge was only about a 10 minute drive away from their home, to a young boy it felt like a lifetime, so he measured his mother's love by these seemingly countless miles between.
I really find so much happiness in creating these customs. I love being able to put stories like this one on something so permanent and special. And the sweet stories I learn about my customers and the recipients warm my heart!
