As you can tell my picture is not typical. It's the only time I had to ever take a picture. Or even had a brief second to think about it. I have literally been eyeing this ring for 6 months before I purchased it. A gift for my 30th birthday. I became a young mom at 19 and a wife shortly after. I lost myself in the many sacrifices it took to be a SAHM and maintain a "picture perfect marriage." My (ex) husband left me for another woman in 2014 - just shy of our 10 year anniversary of being together. When he left I was stuck with a house, and no job and no family to help. I had two young daughters who needed me and I was so lost by their father leaving me. Fast forward to 3 years later - I bought a new house, have an amazing career (after many minimum wage jobs) and know who I am. I worked very hard to get to where I am and I had to fight doing it alone. I now can treat myself to things like this. I have learned to work hard, and most importantly love myself. Here's to my new beginning and many more amazing adventures. Thank you Fred & Far for having something for me (and other women) as a reminder that we are important. Self love is the greatest gift.
