Happy Monday everyone!! This week’s manicure is special. 4 years ago after returning to work from mat leave, I left my engagement ring on a side table and ended up throwing it away with a pile of kleenex. I was heartbroken. So since then I’ve only been wearing my wedding band – which was a very simple white gold band, but it was mine and I loved it. I still love it.
Fast forward to Friday. My amazing husband and I spent the night at the Fantasyland Hotel here in Edmonton and after getting ready to go for dinner he said to me ‘you look perfect, there’s only one thing missing…’ I assumed he meant my wedding band which I had left next to the bed and that he was going to grab it for me, but instead he came back with a little black box… opened it up… and I don’t want to type the words that came out of my mouth. (Something along the lines of ‘are you f’ing kidding me???’ followed by fighting back tears so I didn’t mess up my newly applied makeup). I didn’t even have time to realize he not only put a stunning diamond engagement ring on, he also put on the matching band. It’s so perfect I can’t put it in to words… Can’t. Stop. Staring.
So I had to pick a manicure to match – and I went with Crabtree & Evelyn Peony with some Julep Yumi on top.
Have you ever thrown away or lost something like an engagement ring? Please say I’m not the only one!
