I was given this ring right before I gave birth to my daughter, when my fingers were too swollen to wear it. The teardrop gem is aquamarine, my birthstone, used by sailors as a talisman of good luck and protection. I bring its magic along whenever I travel.
Yes, folks, it’s that time of year again. I’m looking forward to my third go at participating in Susannah Conway’s August Break by posting prompts here on the blog and on my Instagram account. There are no rules, really. Simply take a photo every day for the month of August, based on the prompts or not. I take a photo a day all year long, but you can’t lose no matter how many days you keep this up. And the more, the merrier!
