My Emily Ring
Look at baby Emily!!!
When I was pregnant with David, Justin and I decided to get something significant that we could pass down to our son when he was of a certain age. We decided to get a watch, one that Justin would wear so David could recognize it as “dad’s watch” from photos or videos of when he was a child.
When I was pregnant with Luke, we didn’t know he was a boy until he was born, so shortly after Luke was born we picked out a second watch to pass down to him as well.
Justin alternates wearing both of these watches throughout the year, and has actually worn both of them (like one on each wrist) on all of his mountain climbs!
When I was pregnant with Emily, we didn’t know if she was a boy or girl until she was born as well, so after she joined our family, Justin took me to a jewelry store to choose my “Emily ring”. It’s the ring you can see in the photo above, I wear it on my right-hand ring finger. The only time I had it off for a bit was when it was being fixed at the jeweler, otherwise, I wear it every single day.
I talk to her about it and she’s tried it on a few times, and I’m glad it’ll be something special that I can pass down to her when she’s older.
I remember looking at my mom’s jewelry with my sister when we were young. And my mom has passed down a bracelet to me that I wore on my wedding day. I love the stories behind the jewelry, and I’m glad that Emily will be able to look at this ring and likely picture it on my finger.
This is a similar version to the ring I’m wearing in the photo.
