Tying the Knot in a Meaningful and Memorable Way (Without Losing Our Savings or Sanity)

Ring Orders are in

Phew. The ring orders are in. Our final choices are pictured here (although my ring will have an orange stone instead of the ruby).

The process of ordering jewelry from afar has been a little difficult (lots of e-mails back and forth with wait time in between). It was also a little taxing for our friends and family to mail their stuff in. But I'm crossing my fingers that it will all work out.

In the end, however, the donation turnout for old gold to be recycled into our rings was amazing. Here is the list of participants (in alphabetical order):
  1. Camella, a friend from college
  2. Karen, one of my favorite, former college professors
  3. Katy, Matt's beloved mom
  4. Kim, a woman with whom I went to middle school and then college
  5. Lynn, my beloved mom
  6. Marcy, an educational consultant who did a workshop at my school three years ago
  7. Marie, my friend from college
  8. Marlo, my best friend from high school
  9. Marsha, my friend from college
  10. Mary, the mother of my ex-boyfriend, Jeff
I think I got everyone. What a generous list of generous people!
