Weekly Photo Challenge: New…a new life

It’s 2015 and time for the first Weekly Photo Challenge of the year.  Today’s theme is “New“, perfect for the start of another year.  As my husband’s job is finished just after the middle of this year, it will be a year of many new things for us, symbolized in this photo by the two rings: an older, turquoise one I’ve been wearing for some time and a new (Christmas gift), Irish ring, symbolic of our two lives together.  The ring is to be worn so that the bottom of the heart faces the wearer, indicating the she is “taken.”

    What lovely rings!

    Beautiful rings, Janet.

    • Sandra, I can’t wear my wedding and engagement ring anymore (knuckles just a shade too large now) and I may try to have them made into another ring. But I love wearing these two “stacked” on my ring finger.

  3. Ese' s Voice says:

    Both are really beautiful, Janet – so special&meaningful to wear as well as spot on for today’ s prompt!

  4. I love the Claddagh ring. It symbolises so much. Great photo of the two rings. 😀

    • I tried taking a photo with them on my hand but couldn’t do it. 🙂 I have a fair bit of Irish jewelry and since there’s an Irish store in downtown Naperville, it’s always tempting. Of course, a trip to Ireland would be more fun, but I’m not complaining.

    Beautiful entry for the challenge Janet! Sounds like the new year will be filled with new adventures. 😃

  6. I guess you could say you’re “ringing” in the New Year.
    (Sorry — I haven’t had a chance to use a good pun in ages and just couldn’t resist.)

  7. Janet, I’m so touched by your response to this week’s photo challenge. Almost…can’t find the words to say how much I love the meaning of this message. Heartfelt thanks to you.

  8. Janet-
    I love this post. Claddagh rings are so pretty and symbolic. Thinking about love, loyalty, and friendship at the beginning of a New Year are the perfect topics to contemplate, don’t you think?
    The things resolutions should be made of.
