WHY A SAPPHIRE?July 27, 2016
As a whole, mankind likes to do things by the book. That book might be dusty, the pages may be fraying, yet some still feel the need to seek advice from it. Every so often, there are people that don't even open the book. People that want to start their own book and break away from tradition. The best part? Both people are right. Because these books are a series and you simply can't read just one.
What an odd and cryptic introductory paragraph when the title so very clearly states I'm going to talk about my engagement ring, eh? You're totally right, this post is about my ring and why we chose to go that non-traditional route. Why we chose to begin our own book.
Clearly I more than hinted at it for over a year before Joshua even proposed. I made sure he knew the cut and overall style that I liked, but other than that, I really wanted it to be his choice in the end, because let's face it, the woman tends to call the shots in every other aspect of wedding planning, so giving him some creative oomph with the ring, wasn't such a bad thing. Oh, and how convenient that a blue sapphire, represents the month of September, the month we met.
