A while back (I'd link to the particular post but I am posting from the app on my phone and I haven't quite figured out how to do that yet) I posted about whether or not I should take off the diamond ring I've worn on my left hand for years as a sort of visual 'leave me alone' message.
I did remove it and put it away. And at Christmas this year I received the promise ring in the photo. Yes, it is a diamond. It is beautiful.
At some point I promise to post the whole story, but suffice it to say for now that Mr. Awesome and I dated in high school, lost touch with each other, proceeded to live very tumultuous and oddly parallel lives for the next 31 years, and at the end of October he found me online and we are now writing OUR history.
Merry Christmas, everyone, and here's to a New Year full of awesomeness for all.
