a big thank you for Charlotte


Charlotte is one of the loveliest ladies I know. She has southern charm, a heart of gold, and lucky for me, an eye for sparkle. Charlotte kindly volunteered to show Adam the ropes when it came to selecting an engagement ring. Knowing a certified gemologist is a good thing friends! A very good thing.

Oh, I hope you can forgive me for my tardy thank-you writing. I am trusting you’re of the “better late than never” camp. Yes? And really, even months later, I’m not sure I can put adequate thanks into words. It should go without saying, the girl who didn’t want a ring is absolutely, positively in love with hers. It is one of the best gifts I’ve ever received–both for its symbolism and its sparkle. You know how twitchy I was about it, and this ring, couldn’t have been more perfect for me. It’s like it was made especially for my fourth finger, wink. Thank you! Thank you!

I know half the muscle was finding the stones and assembling this work of art. But the other half, no doubt, was Adam. Thank you for being so wonderfully patient with him. You saved him an immeasurable amount of angst (and beaucoup d’argent, oui oui). By far the grandest of all gestures. Your scouting, recommendations and continued support will never be forgotten. I just don’t know how I will ever repay you. But I’d like to start with dinner. And a delivery of buds. And if you can ever think of something, anything, you’ll let me know.

With gratitude and appreciation,
