Jim and I had decided that we were probably not going the traditional rout of engagement rings and just planning on getting bands for the the ceremony. Even so, I still looked online to try and determine my style if we were getting one. The ones I liked were all nature inspired, with flowers or leaf designs and small understated diamonds. I showed these to Jim's mother on our Mammoth trip and she said, "You know, I think I have a ring just like that."
We went ahead and had a matching band that fits under it perfectly. It's beautiful even on it's own. I'll share that when it gets closer to the date. (We have a date now! Our venues are booked!)
