jak & Cimmy’s sweet 16


jak & Cimmy's Journal Jar

Today, we’ve been married for 16 years.

Cimmy got the right idea real quick.  Both of our wedding bands broke, and she wanted to wear a ring again.  So she went to Wallyworld and found an eternity style band that fit her right away.

When we went out on a date to do some shopping (we take time when we can get it, okay?) we stopped by Wal’s jewelry department so I could get an updated size of my ring finger.  Oh dear.  14 1/2, and of course they didn’t have any rings that size.  (Cheap manufacturers will often refer that as a thumb ring size, to boot.)

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me. The username is still unique as of 2016, so it's just me, and only me. It's the real me, because I'm bad at faking otherwise.

  1. Happy Anniversary! Beautiful rings!


    • Thank you! Cimmy’s ring keeps wearing off down to copper or some pot metal, and so she’s thinking about getting a ring that might more closely match what I chose.

      Whatever works. I’m just so tickled that she decided to replace hers (the engagement part lost its diamond), and since my old band is still broken, I figured it was time I followed suit.

      Hope your holiday season is going well, Lauri!
