Happy Birthday, Monnie. Missy used up all the bandwidth with her silly cat photos, so there's no room for me to post one of my cake photos. Maybe next year. ;))

Big hugs,
Deb

Aw, thanks Missy and everyone! What a nice surprise!

I just had lunch with my mom, and now I'm spending the afternoon slogging around the yard in my rain boots getting some gardening chores done. It's my happy place, rain or shine!

I did end up with a little bit of bling! My dear husband got me a piece from one of my favorite Ippolita lines. It's a little outside-the-box for me because of the color--I tend towards more earth tones and rarely do bright blue jewelry, but I love this. The stone is quartz and mother-of-pearl doublet (Tacori uses a similar combo in their turquoise line), and the checkerboard cut gives it a lot of depth, kind of like looking into a swimming pool. It's a really fun summer ring! The hammered, knife-edge band is really cool, and goes with my Gurhan stacking rings nicely. I think he did a great job for a small-ish gift; he got me a new laptop as well and while I would rather have had more bling and less work equipment, I'll take what I can get. ;))

Thanks, ladies! Junebug, thank you for the compliment on my e-ring. I have gone back and forth for years now over whether to reset it into something more delicate, but you know what? I love it, it suits me and the stone it holds, and for durability it can't be beat. Literally every other ring I've worn has gone out-of-round within 6 months, but this one is still as perfectly circular as the day I put it on for the first time. I'm leaving well enough alone and will just continue to appreciate its tenacity. :bigsmile:
