Y’all …

I couldn’t be more excited that today’s Friday! This week has been a doozie for sure, and I’m so happy to put this week behind me.

Looking back, one event that occurred on Sunday should have foreshadowed the rest of the week. On my weekly grocery trip (this week to Target), I looked down only to notice the main stone of my engagement ring was GONE.

GONE I tell you. I still am not sure how I didn’t drop my coffee right then and there. My hands immediately began to shake and words weren’t coming out of my mouth. After stumbling to customer service to leave my name and number (for my own sake), I stumbled to my car and forced myself to breathe. The fact that it was insured was of NO comfort that that moment. Broken prong + no stone = bad, bad Sunday.

To make a very long and dramatic story short, I found my stone. I clearly had special someone watching over me. The amazing folks (Harvey and Carisa) at A-Bryans got me fixed up this week and looking like the first time I saw it.

… That was only the beginning of the week. But, I survived and am still standing. After one more prospective client meeting this afternoon (which always make my days better), I’ll be bidding this week farewell and not looking back.

So to my sweet brides and friends – please continue to have your ring checked and cleaned monthly. Don’t put it on until after you’re dressed, and please, please have it insured. I’m adding “don’t wear it to Target” to my list.
