two small boxes
i opened the outer box and found a medium sized box inside. i opened the medium sized box and found the bag. inside the bag was a velvety black bag and what appeared to be some invoice papers. inside the small black bag were two small black boxes. inside those were two ring boxes. i fumbled through the last layer of box (!) and found the ring boxes to be EMPTY!
though i was a little panicked, i had to laugh at what seemed to be a practical joke that the universe was playing on me.
then, i carefully inspected the invoice papers and found that there was a small white paper bag and inside that bag were two clear plastic jewelry bags. i saw his ring first and then my own.
i tried on my wedding band and was pleased to find that it fit perfectly. and it looked perfect alongside my engagement ring.
i couldn't help but wear it around the house that afternoon, as if i were playing married. joseph insisted that i take it off when we were headed out to run errands later in the afternoon.
the next day, however, i got to the house after joseph and found him wearing his ring, too. :)
