David and I are celebrating our sixth wedding anniversary today. We met in November 2005 and married in July 2011, so we’ve been married now for a little bit longer than we dated. I took a photo featuring our wedding rings for my game piece series to commemorate our anniversary.
These rings originally belonged to my grandmother and grandfather who were married in 1948. Sometimes I look down at my finger and feel the weight both my commitment and theirs. My grandparents were married close to 39 years when my grandfather passed away, and my grandmother remained committed to him even after he was gone. For her it wasn’t till death do us part, it was forever.
