I woke up.. decided not to go to where I needed to be at 7:45am and went back to sleep instead. Then I was told I dont need to come into work today.. .. So I have the whole day to myself. What I really want to do is get in my car and just start driving until I reach a beach. But not California beach because I have been there many times already.. maybe like South Carolina. And its times like these I wish I had a golden retriever to take with me on random road trips and hikes and adventures on last minute days off. (since boyfriends usually have obligations.. school, work, etc.)
This weekend in Vegas we were window shopping and as we passed Tiffany’s I couldn’t help but think how extravagant things are becoming. I wear my great grandmas wedding ring and it is just a simple, silver ring with a teeny tiny diamond inside. I love how understated that is and then you compare that with today’s rings which have huge rocks with halos around them and tiny diamonds all over the bands… (don’t get me wrong.. I am a girl so of course I love love love diamonds and think all rings, big or small or tiny or the size of my face, are BEAUTIFUL so I am not saying anything negative about either, I love anything with diamonds) but its crazy how much things have changed.
I used to want a huge ring, with an extravagant and oh so planned out and romantic proposal, and of course a huge lavish wedding. A lot has changed since those days… When I get married (and no, I am not getting married, or close to getting married) I want everything about it to be so simple. I want a simple ring given to me in a simple moment. No rose petals, no helicopters, or any of that. Not planned, just in a special moment. And if I had not always dreamed of getting married in the LDS temple I would elope in a heart beat.
Just crazy how things change is all.
Since I guess I can’t go drive to South Carolina.. I will just go on a hike and read at the park instead.
Have a good day!
