Like many girls, I had all sorts of ideas and plans about my wedding long before I even met my Mr. Perfect.  Since I wasn't much of a ring girl, I couldn't imagine myself wearing an engagement ring - my thought was to get another piercing in my ear when the time came, and get an engagement earring instead.  Well, as it happened, when the time came, I was up and ready for a proper engagement ring, a classic one, right on my finger.  But now I had to catch up for lost time, for all those years I … [Read more...]
