When my husband and I got married, we were young and headstrong and poor. We were of different religions and this among other things caused some strife in our respective families. So, in the midst of planning a traditional wedding, we eloped. I mentioned we were headstrong, didn't I?
We went to Jeweler's row in Philadelphia and purchased plain gold bands. We hopped in my husband's 1983 Chevy Nova and headed west for a bit. When we returned our families hosted a lovely reception for us and we began our lives together.
Somehow in the dead of winter we started to talk about new rings. I showed Bob the amazing titanium rings on etsy. We both fell in love with the same rings by Johan ,and ordered them.
Our plain gold bands have been with us for more than 20 years, so I wanted a special way to save them, and still look at them. So, I purchased this lovely ring bowl from Caroline at
We had a little getaway on Saturday night and exchanged the rings. Bob tied them in the bowl and I set them up on our headboard when we got home. And they said it wouldn't last....
Kiss the ones you love.
