“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.”--Audrey Hepburn

I was first aware of the story of the starfish when my mother received an award when I was younger, and for making a difference, the story of the starfish was on the plaque she received.  I also had the privilege of being in City Year after I graduated from undergrad.  The legend of the starfish is one of the founding stories of City Year.   

This is a video of the strarfish story.

The starfish story reminds me to attempt to make a difference every day.  The difference we make can be as simple as complimenting a friend, or as meaningful as teaching a child.  

I also love starfish items, that remind me of the wonderful story.

Vineyard Vines loves starfish!

Adore these shorts.

I also have this hat and matching mittens.

There are lots of wonderful starfish jewelry items, but earrings have to be my favorite!

I have these from J. Crew

KEP has these lovelies!

And of course Tiffany.

Is there a symbol that you love or that has special meaning to you?  Do you love starfish or any other "ocean" creature?
