...for the loss of a favorite earring.
I bought these earrings a little over two years ago to wear to my brother-in-law's wedding. They quickly became my favorite earrings. I wore them all the time - if my outfit had the slightest wee bit of black, I was wearing these earrings.
I don't know exactly why I loved them so much. Perhaps it's because they brought me into the world of long dangle earrings, and finally ushered me out of the small hoop style I had clung to for too long.
Or maybe I loved them because I wore them to a beautiful wedding, and I was so happy that my brother-in-law married such a great girl. (Okay, okay. I'm totally not that sappy. That's not really why I loved the earrings. I just wanted to give a bit of love to my sister-in-law who really is an awesome, lovely person, and a faithful blog reader. Hi Steph!)
At any rate....at Ryan's last t-ball game of the season I lost one of the earrings. It was in the car ride home after the game I realized it had fallen out. It was a sad moment.
I never pay more than about $7 bucks for a pair of earrings, so it's not like it was a financial loss. (And obviously, the reason I never pay more than $7 bucks is because my 2 year old daughter is better at keeping track of her jewelry than I am.)
I have kept the lone, single earring that remains, just not able to make myself throw it away.
I guess it's finally time. Goodbye, you black dangling beauty. I'm sure all my friends will be grateful that they many finally see me with some new accessories.
Thanks for the shout out! :) That line about loving them because you wore them to our wedding made me laugh out loud! Sorry you lost an earring - that is so disappointing. Now you have a good excuse to go shopping, though!
