Writing My Own Fortune

I got this darling silver fortune cookie on a trip to San Francisco at Gumps. My dear friend got one too. We made a pact to fill them with wishes and goals for ourselves.
There's something awesome and empowering about writing your own fortune. Resting on my side table, it catches my eye every morning and reminds me of all that I have to be grateful for.
Update: I've already received 3 emails inquiring where else the fortune cookie can be found. I discovered they carry both gold and silver at Shopbop (here). I think I may need a gold one now too. Cheers and good fortune to all! xo

I have a lucky horse shoe given to my husband by my Father on our wedding day. I love lucky symbols!

My husband got me the silver fortune cookie for our anniversary a couple years ago. I adore it! He had written a very special message inside. I may need a gold one, too! Isn't it wonderful to look at daily and remind ourselves of everything we have to be grateful for! So very true! How did you like Gumps?

I love that little cookie. I've seen them before and they make me smile every time. I love to bake up a few and put my little messages in. BTW I've included you in that tag game that I got tagged in so head on over to my blog and play the game K? If you don't have time, no worries, I was barely able to even do it. Hope you are doing well.

I Love this idea… I want one in silver!
I also saw that they also have fortune cookie pendants that you can wear as a bracelet or necklace... I might start putting my Life List goals in there. Thanks for sharing
