Another dot in the blogosphere?

The sum is more than its parts: 13+15=28

Posted on: May 21, 2017

When I reflect every day on this blog, I focus on my professional interests. Today, I share a personal one.

Two years ago, I blogged this: A personal note: 13+13=26.

I shared how on this day in 2015, my wife and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary. We got married after 13 previous years as a couple.

Last year was significant in that we were a married couple longer than we were an unmarried one: 13+14=27.

This year we marked our 15th anniversary by hunting down a gemstone for a new ring. The 15th year is celebrated with a blue stone.

It took visits to several stores, and as we are wont to do, we visited the less conventional  ones for a unique look.


We eventually decided on a helical ring. It houses a stone that reminds us of the Millennium Falcon. It has personality that is both beautiful and quirky.

It is easy to look at an anniversary as a number. It is certainly easy to label the ring with a wallet-lightening number. The ring represents more than just our years together. The ring is a key that unlocks our life stories.

Here’s to more years and stories!
