New page - How we got engaged
Monday, May 01, 2006
Sharon, - lovely posts re your engagement. I am so pleased for you both.

All the comments made me think that we should perhaps have a 'how I got engaged' page; for Tales of the Ring, both true and false!

Following Steve's death I took off my wedding and engagement rings, and replaced them with a new, and rather gorgeous ring - my widowhood ring. I thought it was rather a meaningful gesture, but exactly the kind of meaning it could seem to have in other eyes was brought home to me the other day when I was told the following joke

'The stone his widow bought when John died cost nearly $35,000.'
'Wow,that must be some headstone.'
'Yeah, she spent the kids inheritance on a three carat diamond.'

or words to that effect.

Mine though reminds me, in the very best of ways, of Steve.
Oh and I paid for it myself out of my own money.

Actually, I'm going to open a thread on the message board about this as it could be interesting.

I'd never noticed that you don't wear your wedding ring ensemble but now you've mentioned this, I think I can recall you having a white gold and diamond ring? I'll have to have a look next time we meet.
