Life changes EVERTHING....

Life sure can be full of ups and downs. Sometimes it is hard to enjoy the ride, especially when you hit some rough patches. 


FI and I had a chance to be married years ago. But I refused to get married because I was knocked up and I really did not want a court wedding. But, I would have had two very special people in attentance. And that really breaks my heart. Sometimes I wonder if I made the right decision. The best part of a wedding is to celebrate with your loved ones. Unfortunately, my loved ones have grown too old to travel or they have simply been called up to heaven. 


FI and I decided years ago to make a new engagement ring. A ring that symbolized a new begining. (We had some rough years when we were young and called off the engagement. We stayed together through the thick of it and we are stronger now because of those times). I have looked at many designs over the years. I just now found what I was looking for without really looking. 


Story:


A few weeks ago I lost my hero. My Memere passed. Almost 9 years after my Pepere. My Memere and I are both March babies and I was looking for a ring to wear so that I will always have something close that I could remember her by. (the item she wished me to receive for an inheritance was sold in the estate). While I was looking at aquamarine rings from google searches I came across a beautiful design. What could be better? This ... I talked with the designer and she designed me a ring with an aquamarine for my Memere and white sapphires for my Pepere. Now I will have both of them close to me!


It gets better still.... FI and I decided to have this new memoral ring as my engagement ring and then had a band designed to accompany the first design. Now I will have both my Grandparents with me and to symbolize my family, and a band that is new to symbolize our new beginning. 


I cannot be happier :)


Here is the designed rings: esty seller Jessica Bezhad from the store Adagio Custom Designs.

Life sure can be photo 3464628-1


I always wanted a ring that was unique. With my grandparents birthstones, it's more than what I could have dreamed of!
