I know. Everyone thinks their dogs are the cutest. But in my case, it’s actually true. 😉
LOOK AT HER, you guys. Look at my sweet Elladog.
It’s been forever since I’ve posted here, I know. Some things have happened. Chiefly among them, my beloved mother in law passed away a few months ago, unexpectedly, during a totally routine medical procedure. There are these moments still where I just well up out of nowhere, thinking about something she said or did. Tonight, my mom took care of Junior Mock so we could take Mini Mock out to Cheesecake Factory, and Mr. Mock was telling Mini about the first day that I met his parents, and that when they reported back to him later, his mom hugged him and told him they loved me and that I was wonderful.
Totally sweet, but it resulted in one those moments I just described above. Where I well up thinking about her. 🙁
I inherited a few of her most special jewelry pieces, including a pair of diamond studs. Since I already have a pair, and since I wanted to use hers in some special way, I’ve decided, with Mr. Mock’s and his dad’s blessing, to add them to my current wedding set.
I’ve been working with Distinctive Diamonds here in Indy on the design of the new mounting, and this coming Friday, I’m taking in my current wedding set, and my mother in law’s diamonds so that it can all be transformed into the new ring. It’s going to be weird to look at my hand and see something different from what I’ve seen for the past 15 years, but I feel like this is a good way to honor her in a special way.
I have no idea why I’m putting this in a post on TMD, but there it is. 🙂
I’m going to do a before and after! Here’s the before:
In about a week, there’ll be an after. I’ll keep you posted. 🙂 Also you can follow me @mockarena on Instagram for more pics of stuff.
Also, Ashley Judd’s new movie trailer is out. And I literally fell asleep halfway through it. No joke.
