My wedding ring set is from Wal-Mart and cost around $500 total for the 2 rings. If you look closely you can see that last diamond on the wedding band is missing. It has been missing for over a year now, but since it is the the very last diamond I am not worried about it. No one has ever noticed it is missing unless I tell them and it doesn't bother me enough to get it replaced right now. There are more important things I need to spend my money on. Someday we may be able to afford a bigger, shinier ring and I would like to say that I don't want one, but I like big shiny rings and would probably take one if it was offered to me. I would just wear the new ring on my right hand!
NaBloPoMo challenge to write one new blog post every day for the whole month. There are suggested topics (although not required) to get my mind thinking. I do not plan on sticking to the suggested topic every day, but I am intrigued by the challenge of finding a sweet moment to match the topic of the day whenever I can. In case you haven't already guessed, today's daily suggestion was to write about a piece of jewelry you own.
No amount of money can buy a ring that would be able to replace my wedding rings. Troy and I (yes, together) saved every $1 bill that entered our lives for several months in order to buy an engagement ring. We agreed that neither one of us would spend any $1 bills and they would automatically be put into our savings jar. When I look at my wedding rings (with the missing diamond) I smile thinking about how dedicated we were to saving up enough money to buy a ring so that Troy could propose and we could start planning our wedding and we would finally be husband and wife.
I cleaned my rings today and smiled like it was my wedding day as I thought about Troy paying for my engagement ring in $1 bills. I wonder what the cashier was thinking?
