I wanted to have a picture of my husband's ring in a "serious" or "somber" setting. Because marriage is a sacred covenant that is not to be entered into lightly, but with reverence. So, you know, it's "heavy."
Not that our life is necessarily heavy; we do have lots of fun and tons of laughs and have built a life already full of fond and precious memories. We've also had what at times feels like more than our share of ups and downs. Our faith in the Lord and our commitment to each other has helped us weather some pretty serious storms. The things that would have torn other couples apart have drawn us closer together, and we have a bond now that is like an anchor for us, keeping us grounded and secure.
So, yeah. It's heavy.
