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?

    That is really sweet. I don’t know if there are any family heirlooms running around, but I hope there are so that I can have experiences like this.

      Yeah, I had asked my mom about my “something old” and she said, “oh, I’ve been holding on to this for years…”. It’s pretty cool to say the least.
