If you’re a loyal reader, you’ll recall that I had the unfortunate problem of MAJOR swelling during my pregnancy. My feet exploded and my hands weren’t much better. Thankfully, after having Drake my feet shrank back down to normal size, and my hands did–but my knuckles are just stuck at a bigger size. So since last summer when the swelling began, I’ve been wearing a fake wedding ring–just something to hold its place and not make me feel strange without it. (I’ve gotten so used to jewelry I almost feel naked without it!) But I’ve sorely missed my real wedding rings. So I finally decided it was time to get them re-sized. My parents helped get it done with a jeweler we really like in the St. Louis metro area (where I’m from), and they just returned them to me last night. It feels AWESOME to see MY bling back on my fingers! haha. I told my mom I know it’s silly but it was just hard to look at my hand every day and not see the special rings Floyd put on my finger when we got engaged and then married. The rings are extra special because they were my grandmother’s. So now they are in their rightful place–back on my left hand, and are there to stay!
