Happy Valentines Day

by adustyframe ~ February 13th, 2012




I posted this on Facebook the other day–this is my wedding ring and it’s too big for my ring finer.

I wear it on my 3rd finger now but it’s starting to get too big for that. I talked to my jeweler and she said not to get it resized til I’m done losing weight because it’s stressful on the rings.

So, I guess pretty soon I’ll have to put it away for awhile!

Lee gave me this on our first Valentines day. A diamond and a proposal are awfully nice Valentines gifts wouldn’t you agree?

I was so proud of him–he did a great job picking it out. He said it originally came with rubies, but he didn’t know if I liked rubies, so he had the jeweler put amethysts in the ring in place of the rubies. He knew I liked amethysts.

This is our 15th Valentines day. Some of them have been ugly–the year I couldn’t even bring myself to write, “I love you” in a card for him comes to mind. Some were hard–being apart with a Valentines spent in a prison visiting room.

This year he’s on the road but it’s ok! It totally beats some of the bad Valentines days we’ve had!

I know it’s a “Hallmark” holiday, but for us it’s a special day!

Hope you have a great day with your loved ones!

    So glad you are “Together” again

    So glad you want to celebrate! True love is a gift from God! And, again, congrats on the weight loss!!

    I didn’t know my ring size, thus my DH didn’t know it. It was more than two months from the time he gave me my diamond until I was visiting him and could go to his jeweler to get it resized. In the meantime, I found some ring snuggies at Walmart that worked well. Maybe those would help? The pack had 6 or 8 different sizes.

    Enjoy your special day!!

    I had ring snuggies–still too big;) It’s ok–just wish I was done losing weight so I could get it sized down!

    I’m glad this year is a happy Valentines day for you and Lee. You both deserve to celebrate and I hope you’re able to as soon as he gets home from working on the road!

    And congrats on the weight loss!! I’m not sure I could get my ring off if I tried. 🙁 I lost my 1st diamond ring at work after wearing gloves during a long procedure. My hands were sweaty and I’m pretty sure when I pulled the gloves off to wash up it came off and went into the trash. Since then, I had my replacement ring sized a little smaller to prevent a repeat and then I gained weight. Uh oh!
