Like Finding a Diamond in the Snow..

This happened over vacation.

I went to show Ben the dry skin I was getting under my ring and 

It was gone.


The whole finding a needle in a haystack....kind of like finding a diamond in the snow.

Near impossible.

No loose prongs.

Not caught on anything.

The whole thing.

Popped out.


We didn't have insurance on the diamond, Mr. B was only 19 and the ring was expensive enough.

This is actually a new setting I got almost a year to the day. 

I never went to my 6 month inspection.

They wouldn't cover the diamond anyway.

I am so thankful for this face  
She has helped put it all into perspective for me that it is just a "thing".

Of course, a special "thing".

A beautiful "thing".

But it is replaceable. 

It's hard to cry about something like that when you see those sweet eyes, big cheeks and dimples looking into your watery eyes. 

There are much greater and important things in life. 

I am also thankful for the support and kind words from Mr. B, I thought he was going to be really upset and he wasn't!

I am extra thankful it wasn't really my fault. I don't have the best track record of keeping jewelry safe {with the exception of my wedding ring!} so it's a relief that I didn't lose it/misplace it or something. 

There really was nothing I could have done.

I don't even remember hitting my hand hard, or at all, on anything!

Although there far greater things in life, this girl does love diamonds and it's still a 
big bummer.

Such a bummer but it could be mom's original wedding ring was stolen! :-( She was at a car wash and she took it off real quick to put lotion on, set it on the center console, and accidentally left it while the car was getting washed...she is certain one of the workers took it. She didn't realize it until later :-(

She now has a new one but she still misses her old one.

And yes, that sweet little face really puts it all in perspective, doesn't it? :-) Love our little smiley girls!

Oh my goodness! This also happened to my best friend at work! Luckily she found it though! It is after all, a "thing" but such an important thing. I am so sorry girl! I would have died!! Maybe it's an excuse for an upgrade..hehe!

Oh man, that is such a bummer! But at least you have things in perspective. And girlie, get some insurance when you get that thing fixed! That's part of what I do for a living, and if you find the right company, the premium is minimal (ex. $8000 = $88/yr).

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that :( But sweet Adalyn definitely can cheer you up!
