A First Time for Everything

Tonight, a picture by request.

Although I'd only been wearing a wedding band until my birthday, I had dropped it off at the jewelry shop a few days before that so it could be re-plated. Sky decided I had to have a ring to wear on my birthday, as you know- very smart man.

This afternoon, we picked up my band, and I was able to wear both an engagement ring and wedding band for the first time in almost two years of marriage.


It was so shiny. It made me feel slightly more legitimate and grown up, somehow. 

Two circles, plus his one. They clink slightly on a table, but they would speak such loud stories if they could.

With this ring, I thee wed. Again and again and again.

This is a beautiful sight.

My diamond on my ring is loose (like scary loose) so I haven't been able to wear my ring (they are soldered together) for 2wks now... It made me so sad, it's not the ring itself but the meaning behind it. My hubby noticed my mood and bought me a beautiful swarovski set as a hold-over (it also served at my birthday & our 2nd anniversary gift).

So beautiful and you have really nice hands, too. :) I love to hear that little clink my rings make when they bump into each other.
