I’m taking the slightest of breaks from writing today. Instead, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite pictures ever.
Choo-choo and I were playing with his stickers one day when he decided to decorate my wedding band as well. My actual engagement and wedding rings still did not fit by this point (thanks baby weight and water retention!). Diesel had bought a simple wedding band for me to celebrate our fourth anniversary. It was exactly what I wanted it to be and even asked for. And yet it still didn’t feel as special as my other rings did.
Then Choo-choo came along. While he knew he was putting flower stickers on my ring, I don’t think he realized just how beautiful it looked to me when he was done. I had to take a picture to save the memory forever. (I apologize for the blurriness, but I still adore it anyway!) I couldn’t exactly leave stickers on my hand day after day. They would have been ruined after one hand washing. In fact, they were.
But this picture? This picture I will have until my dying day. Hopefully, Choo-choo will keep it once I am gone. It was such a beautiful gesture for my sweet one year old to do.
