What I wore to Mass today is something I've worn before, and I first showed it to you in my last WIWS post: it's a beautiful cross, layered in 18K gold, with a piece of stone that came from the Cave of the Nativity in Bethlehem (the birthplace of Christ!) in the center. Last time, I wore it with a liturgically correct purple knit dress from Coldwater Creek. Today, I wore it with a purple Ralph Lauren sweater, which was a Christmas 2012 gift from my #4 son's new bride, Braveheart. (I modeled this sweater in a WIWS post a while back, and one youthful commenter "loooved" it, with its unusual horizontal cable-knit. Even gave it "props." So thanks for keeping me up to fashion speed, Braveheart!)

I feel extraordinarily blessed to have received this Classic Nativity Stones Cross from the generous people at Nativity Stones, and I'd like to do the best I can to get the word out about the wonderful work they are doing to share these precious relics with as many believers as possible.
