Welcome to my home on the internet! Here I’ll be sharing some of my favorite lifestyle hacks, budgeting tips, and dating ideas. You’ll definitely see photos of my pets (You’re welcome!) and some mindful living ideas as JT and I work together to make our first home, the cutest little midcentury bungalow in midtown Tucson, all our own!
How do y’all feel about men wearing engagement rings? It’s one of my favorite trends that I’m seeing more and more of. This year alone I’ve had several engagement sessions where the groom has been wearing an engagement ring. And I am here for it!
What’s interesting to me is that without fail each bride will ask “is it weird that he’s wearing his ring already?” Girl, no! It is not weird. I’m going to get on my soapbox for a minute! Just because something is unconventional does NOT mean that it’s weird! I completely understand why that question gets asked with such frequency though. I have a feeling that if my husband had worn his wedding band through the engagement I probably would’ve asked the same question. So here I am saying you do you. Whatever it is that makes y’all both happy – do that thing!
But if you’re going to be a ring wearing member of society make sure that you are taking care of your ring! This means taking it off when you cook, clean, shower, and yes even sleep. I’m a big fan of ring dishes to put your ring in when you’re not wearing them. And I’m a big fan of supporting handmade shops.
I absolutely adore Lindsey over at Fettle and Fire because her dishes are so versatile. And I was absolutely thrilled to photograph her most recent collection of ring dishes! But I love that these dishes have more masculine options. So you can get a matching set in whatever your favorite color is and you can choose if you want to add some cool designs or not!
