But lately I've been wondering if I'll ever find someone. Maybe I'll never get to wear that ring. Hmm, I'll have to make a deal with my grandmother to have the ring when I turn thirty - married or not!

My Grandmother's Ring
Every few months, my grandmother and I look at her jewelry. It's kind of like opening an old photo album - every piece of jewelry was worn to something, bought by someone, given for some reason. The picture below is one of my favourite pieces. A few years ago, I decided that if I ever get married, I want this to be my engagement ring. I love it. My grandfather bought it for my grandmother for a birthday or Christmas, or maybe "just because" - he did that a lot. I've always loved this ring. My grandmother also has Aunt Sadie's wedding band, which is pretty special, and someday, it'll be my wedding band. I think it's fine and fun to dream about this stuff when you're single.
