What’s a ring worth?

      No Comments on What’s a ring worth?

Lately I have been involved in multiple conversations about people upgrading their wedding rings.

Believe it or not, today (December 26th) is actually the FIRST day of Christmas. Yes really.

As anyone who’s known me for more than 5 minutes knows I LOVE Bon Jovi and I have since I was 13. They could put out an album called “Belching with Bon Jovi” and I would gladly buy it.

Right now I am sitting in my favorite chair with my favorite kitty on my lap watching one of my favorite TV shows (Mercy). Granted, it’s Wednesday but I did this same thing last Friday too.
