This Ring is Amazing and tells our story!
February 25, 2018
I fell in love with my husband when I was a 14 year old young girl. For me, it was love at first sight, and I knew from that moment, I was going to marry him. I was instantly captivated by the blonde hair and his dangerous hazel/green eyes. When we were young, my husband surfed all the time. It didn't matter if it was 30 degrees out, or the day before a hurricane. He loved everything about surfing. We grew up in Long Island, so water was all around us. I spent many of days, freezing on the beach watching him surf. I am smiling right now thinking about this. This was many years ago.
My husband was a year older than me, but the life he lived was way beyond my years. He was my first kiss, my first love. When I was 15/16 our lives went in completely opposite directions. Well, my life continued the same, but my husbands life didn't. I would cry because I missed him and my mother would say, "when you're older, you won't even remember his name." I never believed her. . .I thought one day he would come back for me and we would get married on the beach, just like I would dream every single night before I went to sleep. We were supposed to have a perfect life, the whole white picket fence and all.
I eventually moved on, had my dream wedding to someone else, but there was always this deep hole in my heart because he was not the man I was marrying. I had the ability to love someone because they were a good person, but I could never fall in love. My husbands life went in a horrible direction and I found him again. We were together for 4 years, but things didn't work out. He loved me to the core, but I couldn't deal with our situation, so I left, once again and tried to move on -again.
I stayed gone for 10 years, in complete misery until one day I just couldn't take it anymore. I decided my happiness was what was important. At 39 years old, I realized I spent my entire life searching for something, that couldn't exist with anyone besides him. We were finally married last year. It was not the wedding I would daydream and plan since I was 14 years old, but it was still beyond perfect. He proposed by tying a little pink string around my finger. This was something he remembered from our past, 26 long years ago. It was more important and special to me than any huge diamond could ever be. He remembered, after all this time, he remembered something from what seemed to be a lifetime ago.
Since my engagement ring was a small piece of pink string, my husband wanted to get me a beautiful ring for our wedding, but I chose this. He never understood why I insist on wearing a pink string and this little wave ring, and he honestly had issues with this in the beginning. He wanted to buy me the wave ring, because it symbolized so much for us, just everything about when we were young, but insisted I have a proper wedding band. What he didn't realize was, this was it. It doesn't matter if it cost a few dollars or tens of thousands of dollars, what mattered was, we have an amazing love that has lasted over the course of many years.
I have included the picture below. You will see my wedding band and my engagement ring. Why this? It tells our story. This ring tells our story. Considering the price and how inexpensive this was? This ring has held up beautifully and I never take it off. I wish my engagement ring held up this well. LOL. But see, this ring tells our story like no other ring could. Many people stop me and ask what the string and the wave symbolize. I often don't tell the story but just say it is my engagement ring and wedding band. They look at me with an odd look, after all, I am a 40-year-old put together woman who walks around with a string and a wave ring as my wedding band and engagement ring proudly like I am a teen. But I wouldn't have it any other way. It is different and one of a kind, just like our love.
Sorry, this review was supposed to be about the ring, but see, this has a different meaning for me, this ring tells a story. But as far as the ring, I absolutely love it. It is the perfect size and it is not an annoying ring. You don't even realize you have it on. Love this. This ring symbolizes our love and forever.
