- Wedding: July 2016
Hi, bees! Long time, no see. I have been off the boards for months as I get into the swing of my junior year of college and live up to my username by finally landing my first official debate coaching job (yay!)
So it has been busy and in the midst of all of it, I have backed off of the boyfriend about making longterm plans and boy, has it ever paid off!
We ordered the ring last week from our chosen jeweler, Graham at Stone Fever. He makes completely handcrafted jewelry only through bending, soldering, forming, and forging, no molds whatsoever. I sent him a secret message to rush the ring to my SO just in case a Valentine’s Day proposal was in the works (I am not really sure what he’s planning) and it arrived the day before yesterday, all the way from California!
I have sworn to myself to to SO not to peak, because I do not want to see it for the first time until he proposes, but we are not super traditional so I let him try it on my finger with my eyes closed to check the fit today (perfect fit!)
I honestly can’t wait to see it because SO says it’s gorgeous.
I’ll post updates with pictures when The Big E-Event happens, so keep your fingers crossed.
Here’s what the ring kind of looks like- I expect mine to be a little different since they’re all separetely handmade.
