funny story, ring shopping actually marked the first bride-zilla break down of the wedding planning events. in my mind I was so so excited for this and, naturally, i wanted jordan to be so so excited too. and if he wasn't so so excited than i felt so so guilty for spending a lot of money on something he wasn't even so so excited for. you get my drift? so i sit there and break down into pointless tears and tell him to please be so so excited or it wasn't even worth it. and cute jordan, i kid you not, tried to tell me that he was SO happy to ring shop but tried to describe a situation of how excited I would be if we were out shopping for a motorcycle for him, which i think had an opposite affect than he wanted because why would i ever want to buy him a motorcycle ;) does that make sense? no. but neither do a lot of things when a girl has engaged-brain. which i seriously am telling you is a real live thing.
why i love my engagement ring
i get to wear this beautiful piece of jewelry on my little finger that tells everyone, i have my person. my ring is special because it's my outward statement of my commitment. people who don't know me, know that i have devoted my heart to someone without even asking, or knowing my name. it's not just about being "taken" it's about declaring that i am choosing to spend eternity with my soulmate, and i'm proud of it. the concept is romantic, and sweet, and loyal, and that is why i could hardly wait to have jord slip it on my finger. my ring has no beginning and no end, it goes around forever just like the love i do and will continue to share with my soon to be hubs! that is seriously why i love my ring so much.
(and jord totally agreed when i told him how duh it was way more than just a piece of jewelry)
the fact that it is rose gold, beautiful, dainty, sparkly and everything i could have ever imagined is just a major perk to what it truly symbolizes to me.
