An Ice Cold Shower + A Little Conditioner And I'm Married! (Again..)

Big day, folks. HUGE day.

For the first time in nearly four months, four long and painful months, four months filled with vicious assuming glares from strangers, I was able to wear my wedding rings. I may have shed a tear the day I had to remove them for fear that if I didn't, I may wake up one morning with the emergent need to remove a digit and I most certainly cried a little when I was finally able to slide them back on my oh-so-naked ring finger yesterday evening. 

I'm not lying when I admit to trying them on almost every single day since the bith of C. And just when I was about to call the jeweler and ask them how long it would take to resize a wedding set, I turned on the shower to the coldest setting and stepped inside armed with fiery motivation and a bottle of Pantene Pro-V deep conditioner. 

Can you blame me for missing them?   



I just need to keep reminding myself.. baby steps. Wedding rings today? Who knows what lies on the horizon.

  5. Your wedding set is beautiful, I can totally see why it would be hard to have to keep them off for that long! I have been lucky (crossing my fingers) so far... but who knows, I may be on the same boat soon!

  8. I haven't been able to wear mine for like a year because of an issue with my finger so I understand completely! (I finally went to the doctor and after a lovely Cortisone shot was told my finger may never go back to its old size so re-sizing it is!)

  17. I got lucky. I only took mine off to labor and then put them right back on. But I know it's got to be aggravating to not be able to wear them. So yay! So glad they're back on! Happy Wedding Day! =)
