Yippee!

I have been telling Mark for years that I wanted a beautiful diamond anniversary band. I had a wedding set when we got married but it was lost years ago. Over the years since, I have bought myself several really small bands but honestly, the only reason I picked them is because of the price -- cheap! So I never loved them and rarely wore them.

This year, I asked Mark to get me a nice-sized anniversary band that I could wear all the time but added that I wanted to help pick it out. So last week, we went to Jared (yes, "he went to Jared!" -- gasp!) and picked out exactly what I wanted. It's nothing flashy or even special except to me -- it's a yellow gold band with 1 ct. of diamonds around nearly the whole band.

It's beautiful. And it's exactly what I wanted. I love it. And I love the fact that Mark, who is a self-confessed jewelery-hater (he thinks it's too expensive and he just doesn't appreciate it) was wiling to spend what it took to get me what I wanted.

So along with all the other great stuff I got for Christmas (I'll work on publishing more about that tomorrow!), I got the diamond anniversary band I've wanted for a long time.

He's a keeper!
