- Wedding: September 2014 - Garden outside our church
Well, Bees, It’s been quite a week. The Col and I were on the interview trail for the last three weeks. He introduced himself as my fiance, people referred to him as my husband, he looked for houses while I was at the part of interviews that didn’t involve families. One of the interviews was in his hometown–we visited his family home (now empty) and talked about fixing it up for our child (who doesn’t exist yet), and we got to see his son, who was female the last time we saw him.
When we got home, his son who had been watching our furchildren had to tell us that our precious cat had died while we were away. Needless to say, we are heartbroken.
Then at church this morning, our friends gave us save-the-dates for their Ceremony (they too, met after we did). We are so thrilled that our Church finally recognizes their relationship and are going to fly home from vacation to go to it!
So on the way home, when discussing our plans for the rest of the day, he asked which ring I prefer (we’re down to two stones, two settings), which makes me think that Epiphany we will FINALLY be official. We’re both looking for some ray of hope and happiness in the giant hole left in our hearts and home by the loss of our little boy.
So that’s where I turn to you, Bees: help me choose the LONG awaited ring. If it helps any, I have long-ish fingers, and will be a physician soon (so I need something that won’t horribly catch on gloves). Yellow gold looks best with my skin tone, sapphire is my birthstone (and blue is both his favorite color and the color of his eyes). We met at a church named Trinity (so the trillion has some symbolism for us). We’re looking at thick-ish (5-7 cm) two tone open Celtic knot wedding rings.
