Next Saturday the Man and I will be married 10 years!
As this is our first big anniversary, the Man went all out with his present and actually got it three weeks ago and felt last night was the night to give it to M.E. early.
An anniversary/engagement/mother's ring all in one! I couldn't have been more surprised.
When we were married, we had no money and an engagement ring was not part of the equations, not that ever complained. I'm not much of a jewelry person, so it didn't bother M.E. But it has apparently always bothered the Man that I didn't own a diamond.
Right after LG was born he got M.E. a mothers ring, in which I promptly lost Buddy's birthstone from and since we've had Bab. He went to get it fixed and they said they couldn't.
So.. my new 10th anniversary/engagement/mother's ring.
It's beautiful and I'm very happy.
I love you, Hun!
