10 Years on

10 years ago in May, we got married and to symbolize our unending love for one another, we slipped on these rings. In it, we had engraved 1 Corinthians 13 (4-8).


10 years later, in June, while in Penang on holiday with the family, Packrat's ring floats off in the sea into the Straits of Malacca somewhere. We could have mobilised the naval divers but the chances of finding it would have been akin to finding a needle in a haystack. 

The only alternative and 10 years seemed an apt time to do it, we made new rings. Even though I still had my wedding ring, we commissioned a new set. Not matching, just complementary. 

Something we had learnt, in the last ten years of marriage.  

On a more flippant note, I cannot help but also realise how our hands have aged in the last 10 years.



  1. Congratulations!!!! Happy 10th Wedding Anniversary!

    Perfect choices on the rings. I especially love your trinity styled ring, Shereen!

    On an even more flippant note, your hand is always on top of his. The one who holds everyone and everything together.

  2. but still so beautiful together :) happy anniversary!
