Six Wonderful Years

Way late post #3...

April 9th was our 6th Anniversary!! I can't believe it's been six years already... It seems like only yesterday I married the most wonderful man in the world. : )
Wow... look how skinny I was!! How depressing... ha, ha. So I guess I'll share our super romantic engagement story with you.

We had been dating about a year and a half, and one afternoon, we were sitting on my couch watching TV. During a commercial break, Matt looked over at me and said, "So when do you want to get married?" And I said, "Yesterday."

Wasn't that sooo romantic!? Ha, ha, ha... But that's all it took for me! The next day I drug him to Kay Jewelers to look at rings. : )

Around that time, all of my friends were getting engaged. So I had been looking at rings online to get an idea of what I wanted just in case Matt was anywhere near asking me. And I had pretty much decided that I wanted a heart-shaped diamond on a white gold band, with just a plain white gold wedding band. I loved the heart-shaped diamonds, and I wanted something nice and simple. But being a great salesman, the Kay lady had me try on a bunch of different enhancers... and what she didn't know was that I LOVED all things angel... And one of the enhancers happened to look like angel wings. So when I tried it on and saw a heart with wings, Matt took one look at my expression and (reluctantly) said, "We'll take it." : )

I love my wedding ring!! Even after six years, I still find myself gazing at it occasionally. : ) Of course, it's nothing compared to the love I have for my husband. Matt is the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I thank God every day that He so blessed me with him.

I love you, Baby! Happy 6 years!!


  1. That is so sweet! Your ring is so unique and I just love that you still gaze at it from time to time, as you should! Happy 6 years to you both!

  2. Aww, Happy Anniversary. I love your ring!

  3. Hey It is almost my anniversary!! It is May 1st:) Your ring is beautiful, and unique! I have never seen one like that before. I hope you have a good week!

  4. Every bride has their own wedding ring design in mind, that’s why it’s so easy for them to pick the right ring. Your ring is truly adorable! I can sense that the design, the heart with wings, has a significant meaning for you. For me, though, it symbolizes your great love for each other.


Leaving a comment!? You just made my day :)
