Honestly, I was very disappointed when Josh put the ring on my finger. The ring wasn't at all what I pictured myself getting, and really wasn't too crazy about how it looked.
What I wanted:
What I got:
Yes, it's from Walmart. I really don't care-same thing you can get somewhere else for a lower price.
Not exactly similar. I was vocal about my dislike for the ring too, which hurt Josh, something I don't want to do. I always blame myself, since I knew it was coming, I should have been sending him some ideas. I guess I never really thought I would get something I wasn't crazy about. (We didn't go together mostly because if we went, I would have know for sure it was coming, which as you know, I did anyway. I'm not, and I don't think he is either, crazy about the girl going to pick out what she's getting. She can send suggestions, but personally, I think it should be up to the man to pick it out.)
The ring has grown on me a lot. It's MY ring, and even though it's not what I would have picked out for myself, it's what Josh gave me. After all, it ISN'T about WHAT the ring looks like, it's the MEANING behind the ring. It's a symbol of the committment that we're going to make. Josh went to pick out what he liked and thought would be a good fit, and honestly, it's not a bad ring. It's very beautiful, just not what I would have jumped to first.
After making piece with my ring, I took a bunch of awesome ring shots. I have some from the winter and just some random ones. I'm hoping to get some spring pictures once it gets nice, and perhaps some summer ones. You'll just have to wait on those. Actually, you'll be waiting on the ones I have too. Those come in another post.
Did you love your ring when you got it? Did you help pick it out, or was it a surprise?
