Rici What a beautiful post Mary. thank you for sharing so personal and funny! Just today as I walked back to my place I thought about you and Justin and how you make my mornings better and my inspiration brighter and I composed a love note for you two, secretly in my head. I adore what you do and how you do it and you have no friggin idea how much you inspired me and how much you helped me grow in the last months! Grazie così tantoooooo!!  Jul 4, 2012, 2:03pm

Rachel McCloud I will make my husband super proud right now by quoting a movie (he's a movie afficiando:) From Rocky- "She's got gaps, I got gaps, We fill each other's gaps" Thanks for being an awesome example of doing business and life together well :)  Jul 3, 2012, 11:17am

Eryn Kesler Love love love. The glass of water? Melt my heart! What a servant heart!  Jul 3, 2012, 4:54am

Irina An idea I saw on Pinterest to help with preventing tangles: http://www.realsimple.com/new-uses-for-old-things/new-uses-accessories/knotted-jewelry-00100000071274/index.html Use a drinking straw to prevent tangles!  Jul 3, 2012, 1:13am

Kari Jeanne I don't know what I would do without my own husband who fills my VERY LARGE gaps :) I totally have a pineapple necklace - I think this means we should be bff's! And yeah, mine is currently tangled in a ridiculously big knot!  Jul 2, 2012, 11:22pm

Lisa Cour Hi Mary (and Justin), its been about two weeks since I was here between being unplugged for vacation and getting ready and recovering from said vacation. Is it strange that I feel like I missed you?? Especially when this is the first post I read. Mary...you are just an incredible writer! And really...what ARE the odds that a knotter and detangler would meet and fall in love! You guys are the best!  Jul 2, 2012, 10:23pm

Christa You guys are so sweet :)  Jul 2, 2012, 9:59pm

Sandra Fazzino BTW - I use these bags that hang inside my closet - love them!

Sandra Fazzino He untangled your necklaces because he couldn't sleep. He takes the Gold for best husband. I'm certain. XO  Jul 2, 2012, 7:28pm

Realtor Dad Mary, he gets the gift from me. In high school, Sears hired me to work in the jewerly dept because no one else could untangle the necklaces. I don't really like tomatoes, I can be ready in 10 minutes for anything, I am more of an eater, I can also fix anything or throw it out the window, whichever is the best choice, I wash and dry, we both hate the smell of coffee, and cooper carries his own bag when I walk him. So thank your lucky stars and don't forget your father-in-law.  Jul 2, 2012, 6:42pm

Lauren Wakefield Girl....can I borrow your necklace collection...and my borrow I mean have??? There's nothing better than finding your perfect match...and you most definitely have.  Jul 2, 2012, 3:44pm

laura marie duncan oh mary... you. are. funny. :-)  Jul 2, 2012, 3:38pm

Bethany Belle quite possibly one of the cutest blog posts. ever. period. 'Nuff said!  Jul 2, 2012, 3:16pm

Christy Tyler Ha!! I love this! I wrote a post similar to this about James a while back, so this made me smile to see how you two compliment each other in some similar and different ways. :) Also - this was my solution to my necklace knot problems: http://www.christytylerphotographyblog.com/2011/10/room-reveal-bedroom.html (see the first & last photos). Although having a husband that can untangle them works too! ;-)  Jul 2, 2012, 3:09pm

Ashley Cochrane I, too, have grapefruit sized knots. Which are made worse when I get frustrated and throw the whole thing.. not out the window luckily :) Thank God for husbands :)  Jul 2, 2012, 3:02pm

Susan Evans You guys are so great together - it's awesome that you found one another. And regarding your last post?...I read your blog pretty much every day, so thank you for all your inspiration and for all the time spent making it meaningful for people like me. But if you have to back away from social media a little, I say do it! I'll still check your blog every day, even if it doesn't always have something new on it (and I'm confident a lot of others will too).  Jul 2, 2012, 2:55pm

ashley barnett I adore this post!!! So, not that I am doubting Justin's superhero detangler skills..but, a little birdie told me that if you get bendy straws and just put each necklace through that and clasp it at the end, voila! No more tangled jewelry! :) Also, Jeremy has that whole technology thing down pat. I whine, cry, stomp my feet and exclaim "FIX IT", much like a two year old, and Jeremy somehow always fixes it, much like the more mature than me adult he is. I love him for it.  Jul 2, 2012, 2:52pm
