I often get comments in stories about the rings I wear on my “wedding finger”, and people usually imagine they’re Alex’s gift. Nope, Alex and I have are not the jewel-giving type—not even for our wedding!
These rings were given to me by my dad and my mom for the birth of Oliver and Emily. The lone diamond has Oliver’s name and date of birth engraved. The other has Emily's.
It’s funny, but today, knowing my children, it almost feels like the rings reflect their personalities.
Ps. I don’t like wearing any jewel that doesn’t have a special memory or meaning in my heart.
