8 years wedding anniversary

8 years of marriage with hubby today.
We celebrated exchanging new wedding bands. Why? I'm going to tell you why.....

Hubby gained 50 pounds from the day we married 8 years ago and got to the point were his band was stopping the blood circulation to his finger, so he had to take it out. So for a while he wasn't wearing a ring at all, he was very bummed 'cause he really think is not ok for a married guy to go around without a ring.

I went to a jewelry place and ask about resizing, but they told me that since we bought the bands in Italy, the gold there and the gold here is different, so if they were to add gold to make the ring larger but keep the same width, we'll see a mark were the different metals join. We talked about just enlarging the ring, but that will make it thinner and it's not very thick to begin with....I don't want it to disappear!!!! My other choice was to buy a new ring, but hubby really liked the fact that our bands matched perfectly, so the only way to go was to buy new bands for both of us and that's what I did.

I ordered from OrienJewel on Artfire. She was quick, efficient and very helpful. I decided to go with titanium because is lightweight, cheap and very durable. I picked the simplest and cheapest design in the store, but there is a lot of styles to choose from.

I tied them up to a mini heart pillow with the date embroidered on it to look like digital numbers as hubby is a computer geek. After we exchanged the new bands, I used the pillow to store the old ones as a keep sake....you know, in case hubby gets thinner again lol
