From the moment Patrick, my fiance', proposed to me, there was no greater feeling than seeing the ever-longed-for engagement ring resting on my finger. Even hours after the proposal, I simply gazed at this sparkling stone set upon my hand. I can fondly remember traveling back to my apartment and preparing for bed. As I brushed my teeth, I glanced down thinking, "Well, what do we do, ring?" I had placed my newly acquired ring box on my nightstand, but something within me questioned whether or not to sleep with my ring on.
Although that night I chose to safely place my ring back in its box, now that I have been engaged for nearly 7 months, it is not unlikely to find me wearing my ring to bed on occasion. (although, it MUST come off for lotion application! :-) ) Wearing it to bed is not a trend with me, but I do wonder if it is a daily routine for some women.
Now, someone reading this may think, "How trivial!" But, in all actuality, I'm certain there are more newly engaged brides-to-be who have wondered and currently wonder the same issue!
One point winning my argument for wearing your ring to bed is if you suddenly have to leave your home in a panic (i.e. family emergency, fire, etc.) *God forbid any of those happen* But, hey, it's a valid point.
I've grown to consider my ring not only as a symbol of our love, but more of an extension of our love. I mean, I feel weird cleaning without my ring, yet alone forgetting to put it on one day! (luckily that has happened only twice!)
