Tell Me Thursday - Band

That is my new wedding band, a Christmas gift from Bo.  I haven't worn my wedding set since I was pregnant with Colin.  I kept thinking my fingers would shrink back down so it would fit again, but they never did. 

Every once in a while I would think about a new one, but it wasn't really a priority. I knew I was married -- I didn't really need a ring to prove it to anyone.

In the last couple years that I've been traveling for business, though, it came to mind more often.  I ran into 2 situations -- either the people who searched for a band and assumed that I could travel for business because I wasn't married OR the men who would try to pick me up thinking I wasn't married.  It was just slightly annoying, but I started getting the feeling that people didn't believe me when I said "No, I'm married -- I just don't wear a wedding band."

I'm super happy with the band Bo chose.  It was a wonderful surprise and now when I travel I have that physical reminder of our love, our marriage, and maybe a few less inquiries as to my marital state!
