A Part of Me is Missing - And A book giveaway!
You can't see it in this photograph, but I'm wearing my engagement ring, a diamond solitaire on a gold band. With the exception of two months during my second pregnancy, I have never gone without it since my 20th birthday when Peter put it on my finger and asked me to be his forever-bride.
Until this last week.
That's when I had to take my engagement ring in to a jewelry store for repair. The jeweler says it will be two weeks until I get it back!
I can't say that I consciously think about my engagement ring every day, but now that I don't have it, I find myself missing it. I didn't realize how often I spun it on my finger, or how it was always there when I was typing, or how I was careful not to snag it on anything or poke anyone with it because the setting is rather high. With it at the jewelers, I feel as if a part of me is missing. I can't wait to get it back!
I'm giving away a copy of North Star Brides, the 3-in-1 collection that tells the stories of the Kennebrae brothers and their arranged marriages. The third in the series is The Engineered Engagement, which has an unorthodox engagement ring as part of the story.
Leave a comment and tell me about either your engagement ring, or a favorite piece of jewelry to be eligible to win.
US residents only. Winner will be announced next Wednesday.
