Moments pass, but what stays behind with us is the feelings they bring with them. Just like we cannot keep sand from slipping away from our fingers, no matter how much we try, we cannot hit a pause button where we were swept off our feet or the time our heart wanted the moment to freeze.
Your mother’s expression when you showed her your first paycheck, the first piece of jewellery you bought for a special someone, that scarf your friend gifted you on your birthday, and many more such things are beautiful reminders of those endless memories that you would like to preserve forever, won’t you?
#CherishedBlogfest is a wonderful idea that allows you to not only go back and sift through the archives of your wardrobe, photo albums, gifts, cards or mind, but also lets you share those special moments and memories with your blog friends.
The first cherished memory that I would like to share is a picture of two of my most beloved rings that I bought when I was in junior college. Don’t ask or try to guess how long back it was, please? 😆;)
One of my friends was crazy about jewellery; the bold, manly type ones. She loved wearing metallic rings and bracelets. I wasn’t much of a jewellery fan, but one day I tagged along with her to the shop she bought this stuff from, since the place also sold birthday cards.
I chanced to glance upon a tray of ‘girlish rings’ my friend had discarded and my eyes fell upon these two gorgeous beauties. I didn’t think twice and happily paid twenty rupees for both of them. Since that day, every place I’ve been to for study or work, these rings have accompanied me.
I’ve worn them with every garment and they go with anything. They look used now but I can’t dream of doing away with them! Friends have come and gone but these two have been with me always. They’re special.
