It was beyond beautiful outside yesterday.  Audi was in lectures all day and got out of work early at 3pm.  (Every so often he gets to spend all day in lectures on medical topics like:  Hearing loss, throat cancer, etc.  Exciting, right?)  So the kids and I picked him up from work and we headed to the St. Louis Zoo.  How better to spend a glorious early evening outside?

Here in St. Louis we have one of the top zoos in the nation.  And…  It’s free!  That’s right there is absolutely no entrance fee to our zoo and that’s not just for residents.  If you come to St. Louis on vacation then you too can experience our zoo for free!  (Along with our free art museum and free science center.)  Thanks to the generous donations of so many wonderful, giving St. Louisans.

Every summer the zoo has bands perform in the evenings.  It’s always packed.  We of course picked to go to the zoo on band evening.  😉

Two years ago, we took a trip to Washington DC with my family.  It was a great trip but ended up being pretty costly — though not for reasons we had anticipated.  Somewhere along the way that week, my husband lost his cell phone (that had the only pictures of my son right after he was born — long story about forgetting our camera) and I lost my wedding ring.  We searched everywhere for both and tried to retrace our steps, to no avail.  It was heartbreaking!

I searched for the perfect ring for about a year, so I became fairly attuned to what I was looking for in a special piece of jewelry.  I love clean lines and a simple setting for practical everyday use.  I like the look and durability of white gold (my first ring was platinum, and it took a lot to keep it looking shiny and smooth), and also the shine of a gorgeous single diamond.

Kranich’s Jewelers features two collections of engagement rings and wedding bands that fit my own description for a ring, and they also offer such a variety of choices that would appeal to all buyers.  If anyone is thinking of popping the question this Valentine’s Day or would love to encourage their significant other (!), I would suggest taking a look at the classy engagement ring and wedding band selections  of the ArtCarved Collection or the stunning range of gorgeous pieces in the Gabriel and Company Collection.
