    I just wanted to post because I'm really happy about what happened... I was telling my 7 year old nephew Josh about how I want him to find a good shell so he can carry up our rings at the wedding. He told me that my dad and him collected a bunch of shells on the beach last summer and he saved them, so could he use one of those? My dad passed away suddenly last September, so I thought this would be a great way to incorporate something. When we went to look at the shells, I saw that my dad had drawn on each of them, i.e. a flag, a shark, a person, etc. He also drew a shamrock on one of them...he was so into his Irish heritage. So, we're going to use that one. I love it!

    (Sorry, I was so excited, I posted this in the wrong section!!!)

        Oh that is wonderful!!! What a great way to incorporate that shell!

        After reading your post I just called my Mom (who has my nephews at their beach house for the week) and told her to put the little guys on a mission for 2 shells that we can use (since they are both ring bearers!) Thanks for the great idea!!!

              This made me teary eyed. What an amazing thing for you to have found and to be able to use at your wedding. I am so happy you found that shell. That means you will have good luck on your wedding day and in your marriage for sure.
