    The rings look great! Thanks for sharing the note that some sweet woman (looks like lady writing, right?) left. Someone backed into my car on Saturday in the mall parking lot and left without leaving a note and I’ve been feeling a little cranky towards the general public. You’re right, there are good people out there!

    Have a super honeymoon!

    Have a fantastic honeymoon! You guys deserve it.

    And how sweet is your mom for making those magnets? I love that someone wrote you a note. That would have made my day!

    I can’t believe your uncle made those cakes. Is he a pro baker? Certainly looks like it.

    Rings look great…but CAKE looks amazing…I thought the pictures of it were nice but the inside looks even better. Yes, I am a sweet over jewelry lover…easy buying for hubs ~ not good on the thighs. πŸ˜‰

    Enjoy your honey moon.

    Amazing magnet by the way!

    I want to see that on your car in 50 years!! (and every Anniversary in between!)

    Have a fantastic time in the DR! I hope you enjoy every minute of it!

    I haven’t really been reading your wedding posts and discovered your blog after you got engaged, so I had NO idea you had a diamond and sapphire ring! Since I’m single, I’m clearly nowhere near being engaged, but I’ve thought about engagement rings (what girl doesn’t, especially when all her friends are getting engaged?) and a ring just like yours is really high on my list of what I’d like my ring to look like. I LOVE how the wedding band looks with it as well…absolutely stunning!
