A Decade Today






For Ten years I've worn the same ring on my finger. It's gathered some scratches, and gets dusty from time to time, but it's a good ring...a solid ring.
A ring that said "I do" on the Square in Marietta, Georgia, shook off the dirt after that first garden was planted, had hundreds of paint colors cover it from time to time, sparkled when my children were born, and comforted me when the word "cancer" was dropped into our laps.

Newly engaged in Germany
This little ring is ready for more. More scratches, more dirt and more love.
Because Ten years of marriage isn't enough...not nearly enough.
It's a damn good start!
I'm greedy and I'm proud of who we are, and what we dream together.

P.S. - Hans gave me this aquamarine ring for our 10th anniversary. I hope that in ten years this ring will also have a happy story to tell.

Beautiful post. Happy anniversary to you both. I am from Athens, GA and can't wait to get into the mountains and try some of those places Hans recommends.
