Giving Gifts: SOLT

I thought this post would be a snap to write.  I’ve been visualizing it, burning to put it down and share it, but this is my fifth effort and I can’t get the flow so here’s another draft.

This is a perfect time for gift-giving; we have our health again, so it’s time to celebrate!

I created a new photo calendar for him, documenting our events, he got it into his head to buy me something special given that my birthday logically  came and went quietly while he was dealing with hospital life.

He loved the calendar and it’s now up on the wall, showcasing our life together.

I have this fancy ring on my finger, replacing a band of 15 years, that’s not discarded, just moved over to the right hand.

Funny, I never expected a fancy ring.  I was always satisfied with funky, but fancy isn’t bad either, not when it’s really more about us than just me.

  1. Your post made me smile, of course. It’s a happy thing, no matter the gift. With all your photographs I imagine the calendar is just awesome, Bonnie, and a special ring to wear is just right. Happy Anniversary again!

  2. It’s good to know that Tuvia feels better and you are celebrating. I like how you both thought of a perfect gift for each other. Happy Anniversary!

  3. Great gifts. You both have something that you will cherish because of the thought and love that was put into picking out the perfect gift. Of course, the real gift is that you have each other.

  4. Gorgeous ring! But it’s the joy in each of those pictures that is priceless. So happy to read you are back on the healthy track. Someday I will see that ring in person. I think at a cafe with Tara would be just the place. What do you think?

  5. A fancy ring for a fancy time in your life. Live it up and enjoy. Loved the photos and my favorite part was how you wrapped this slice up. It is about “us” not “me.” Lovely lovely. ❤
