Yesterday it started with a single picture. Just one I snapped on my phone of my weddings rings and asked my friends to post theirs too using #WeddingRingWednesday so that I could see them too.
My story is like this: We met in a college history class. We were friends for a couple of months before he asked me out.
We dated for a few months before I admitted we were dating. I finally realized that I didn’t want him leaving to California without me. The ring was one I’d seen in an ad and instantly fell in love with it. He had to wait til he knew I’d say yes before he could buy it because it had to be specially made and they wouldn’t let him return it 🙂 We’ve been married 11 years now, and have 3 kids. I sure got lucky in finding him.
I never imagined I’d the spend the day reading through hundreds of captions (over 600 were posted) about short engagements, long engagements, surprise engagements, and special meanings of rings. People shared how long they’ve been married, how many places they’ve lived, and how many kids they have. It was so cool! I even saw stories from as far away as Australia.
I thought it would be fun to post a few of them here too.
I dare you to read these and not feel happier 🙂
There’s just something special about seeing real life love stories. These weren’t Hollywood made, these are real people who have worked hard in life, and work for their love. They have gone through joy, loss and trials, but they have each other. And that’s even more amazing than a piece of jewelry.
I hope you enjoyed these as much as I did, and that you’ll join me next Wednesday on Instagram for even more of these. Let’s keep it going!
