The Ring...and other musings..


This is my ring.  Kind of.  I can't find a picture of it, but this is the exact same style.

I LOVE it.  
This is it on my finger.  (Before the cop came over and told me that I had to stop taking pictures.  They said I could be taking pictures to come back and rob the place!) 
SO, thats it!

Now I just have to wait for the down on one knee thing!

I went out of town this weekend with my wonderful Aunt Susie.  We went to her fabulous lake house and it was so much fun and super relaxing.  We did a lot of wedding talking/planning.  When I got home last night, I was telling Vince about the visions I had for our wedding party.  I really wanted to have his guys look like this:
He likes the look, but as we have discussed a thousand times-he doesn't want his guys to have to buy anything.  We have always said that with our wedding party; we want them to wear something they already have so they aren't stressed out about spending money.  We want to honor them- not cause them to go broke.  He really had to bring me back to reality last night, and I so appreciate him for it.  I began to say things like, "well, they would only have to buy the jacket" or "they will want to do it, because they love you". 
He shook his head at me.  He reminded me of what this wedding is about to us.  Not about tiny details.  Not about spending a lot of money.  It's about love, family, friends, and relaxing.  
I have a feeling he is going to have to bring me back down quite a bit over the next 11 months.  
And that's ok. 
That's what love is all about.
