When my mom came over this weekend, she brought this ring along with her. It belonged to my grandma and mom says she used to wear it all the time. This is why our wedding is important to me. Not because of my dress (which looked superfly when I tried it on this weekend…woot, woot!) or the decorations or the food or dancing. But because my mom’s been holding on to my grandma’s ring since she passed away seven years ago so that I could wear it at my wedding. How awesome is that?
