Savor the moment and remember it forever.
Maps by A.Jaffe helps with just that and I'm giving away a special couple pieces to celebrate.
The first month of engagement is beautiful - everyone is congratulating you, you can't stop staring at your ring, you're keeping up your manicure. You're in complete bliss. The second month of engagement is when your engagement-moon phase gets inundated with questions like when's the wedding? Did you pick your dress? How many people are coming? Am I invited? And then you start waking up at 3AM online-hunting venues, obsessively pinning the perfect flower arrangements, and distressing at the high dollar signs that come with every. single. detail. What did we get ourselves into?
We got ourselves into a magnificent celebration of our romance, something we're excited to share with the best people in our lives. That's what I have to remind myself, because panicking over wedding details isn't what this is about. Every married friend told me that as easy as it is to stress, give it all your best to just literally stop. You wont' remember the day of the wedding, you won't remember who you talked to, or if your flowers were at the center of every table. You'll remember exploring venues hand-in-hand with your fiancé, tasting the most delicious desserts, and excitingly hiding your wedding dress from your soon-to-be in the house. It's the moments in the now that will matter the most, so Kyle and I are savoring our engagement as heartily as possible.
One of our favorite holidays Valentine's Day is coming up, so we got matching accoutrements from the Maps by A.Jaffe collection to continuously remind ourselves that we are doing this for us. With Maps by A.Jaffe, you can select any address in the world, from where you got engaged to where you are getting married, letting a diamond mark the moment that changed everything. Both our sterling silver necklace and cufflinks are custom-engraved with a map of our first home together in LA, where Kyle proposed to me, with a diamond that marks the spot. Maps by A.Jaffe is a special collection by luxury jeweler A.Jaffe, with rich New York City heritage dating back to the 19th century, and the collection makes beautiful, unique gifts that honor what you hold dear in the past, present, and future.
To share the celebrations with my darling readers, I'm partnering with Maps by A.Jaffe to give away a his-and-hers set that includes a sterling silver map necklace with diamond (shape of your choice) and a pair of sterling silver cuff links with diamond - both engraved with a map of your choice! Think about where in the world matters most to you and your S.O., or loved one, or friend and solidify that memory forever beautifully. A winner will be chosen on February 14th. Enter to win below and good luck!
