It Has a Nice Ring

A few weeks ago my favorite husband and I went to look at new wedding bands. His was mangled and misshapen from work and he hadn't actually worn it in a very long time. We sat and looked at rings. We tried them on. We dreamed a little bit, and then we walked out without making a purchase. I laughed a little while admitting that the only ring that really caught my eye was the pricey one. Lacy rose gold with diamond chips. We took a catalog home with us, just to look at, in case we decided to buy something.

I was unaware when My Darling decided to go back to the jewelry store a few days later. He took his old ring to be reshaped and resized and ordered the pretty rose gold ring for me. I have to admit, it's a little out of character for us to buy expensive jewelry and we were so young when we got married that diamonds weren't even a possibility. My hands aren't young and pretty anymore, but I'm blessed to know I am loved. And you know, his ring looks pretty good on his hand too.

  1. Aww, that's a beautiful ring!!! It looks a bit like the engagement ring I once had, that I accidentally threw away in an old purse several years back, with the rose gold. I love that he surprised you like that, I will be sure to mention it to Paul:) (my wedding band fell off I think in the rec center pool a year or so ago, so I have a naked hand)

    1. I still have my old one. My fingers got fatter in time and there was no getting it off without a concerted effort. I think it's time for you to have a new one. No going naked.

  2. Bethany, this is the second time in a very short time period that your response was the EXACT thing I was going to put. The first time was the "Yes please" on your Mom's chocolate chip cookie FB post. You keep making me change my answers! ;) ... We must be related.
    It's beautiful, Martha! :)

    1. Yes. Sweetness runs in his family, I think.
