Anniversary bands

Today I am sharing a before and after photo by joining Alicia with her weekly meme "Friday Photo Flashback"



Sorry for the photo, but I had it only in my wedding album scrapbook and I couldn´t get it out. What I am trying you to see is our wedding bands. I think I had the most beautiful engagement ring. The most special part of it for me is that Matthew and I never went to see rings together. So he had no idea what I liked. He picked that ring by himself, no help from anyone, so to me that made it even more special and even more beautiful. It came from his heart to mine.

If you want to see this photo bigger, you can just by clicking in it.

As many of you know we just celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary. We were planning to go to Rome, but the crisis is hitting everyone and we thought it would be smarted to postpone the trip for better days :).

Still, it was our 10 year anniversary and we knew we needed to get something special for each other. Something that would be with us forever.

So we decided to buy new wedding bands. We still wear our original ones, but here in Spain, the wedding band are wore in the right hand and it is just a band (no diamond). They are also suppossed to match.

My wedding ring doesn´t fit in my right hand so I have been wearing a ring that Matthew bought me when we first were going out. I was fine with it, of course, but always wanted to get matching ones one day.

So this is what we found and we love it!



As you can see it is one part white gold and another part yellow gold.



This are the flowers Matthew got me too.


Have a good weekend everyone!

Happy Anniversary! I love your matching wedding bands. I guess by having your feet in two lands, you get to enjoy both traditions. Now you feel loved no matter which hand you look at!

Congrats on 10 years !! The rings are beautiful. R and I have matching bands only mine has a diamond. Mine is very special to me in the same way, as R actually designed the layout and setting. I know this is a little late, but I hope ya'll enjoyed celebrating the 10 year mark!
