I really, really like old-fashioned jewelry. One of my absolute favorite pieces of jewelry is my Great Great Grandmother's gorgeous ring. I never take it off for fear of losing it because I'm pretty sure that my life would be over if I ever have to tell my mother that I don't know where it is. And also because it comes with some nifty family history. And mostly because it's GORGEOUS.
Golly gee, but I do love that ring.
But now I have another piece of jewelry that I am head over heels in love with. It was love at first sight. It's true love, people. Locket love.
"Ooo! Pretty locket!"
You can see that I'm wearing my great, great grandmother's ring on my right hand. Joseph likes to try and eat it whenever possible.
So for Christmas, for the first time since he bought me an engagement ring, Stephen bought me a piece of jewelry. To be fair, I don't wear jewelry very much. I mostly forget to put it on. But Stephen gave me this fabulously beautiful Victorian-esque locket. And I might just have to wear it every day for the rest of my life. Good job, love. Bravo!
Now for the finer details.
It has my first initial on the front.
And "Most Loving Wife & Mother" engraved on the back. That made me cry.
I have the sweetest husband in the whole wide world. *sniff*
And Stephen had already placed a picture from our wedding and a picture of Joseph inside the locket. So I can keep them close to my heart.
Like I said... Sweetest husband in the entire world. Even if he is a bit goofy. I LUF HIM!
