Our coat of arms includes three pears. I've associated with the imagery of the fruit all my life. A bouncer at a night club on Korcula used to call me his little pear (the nickname wasn't welcomed, at least not coming from him).
A pear reminds me of my ancestors, of the pride they took in the family symbol, in our family. It reminds me of all those times I've run up and down the stairs of our family house and looked up at it and felt the sense of belonging. I often wondered if the individual who started our coat of arms could have ever imagined that it would hold such a special place in my heart centuries later.
To say the least I've decided to provide you with some ideas of how you can incorporate pears into your special day.
