A Ring

When I saw these rings at Marty's Etsy Shop - Silver Pie Jewelry - I knew that I wanted one.



So I asked Pastormac if I could buy myself one. And he said, "Sure!" (like I knew that he would.)

The catch was that I wanted him to decide what would be stamped on my ring. I didn't want it say simply, "Married" or "Princess". I wanted him to choose what my ring would say. It would be more meaningful to me that way. At a glance I would see his message to me. You can imagine my pleasure when he told me his choice just a moment after I asked him.




Much like the message for me from the ring he gave me twenty years ago tonight, when he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. Twenty years(!) ago when he slipped an engagement ring on my finger and promised to marry me. The message didn't need to stamped on that ring; and tonight just like that special night, it says the same thing to me, "beloved."

Marty was fantastic to work with and I would heartily encourage everyone to buy something from her shop.

She graciously stamped a message on the inside of my new ring too.



I'm so blessed that I said, "yes!"



Thematic Photographic, Love Thursday
