Another throwback! Let me tell about our love story & our marriage. We are a feminist couple & that naturally extends to our parenting & who we are as a family & how we run our home. But, it started with me first. I am a feminist which simply means that I believe people of all genders, races, sexual orientations, religions, social classes, abilities, citizenship or documentation status have equal rights. When I first met my husband, he was not this way, but if he wanted to be with me, he had to come correct! 😅 And, he did! He was homophobic then & never heard of things like white & male privilege. But, because I'm a professor, he has an open mind, is a quick learner, & was VERY interested 😁, he was willing to learn. And, once he learned what this all meant, naturally as any human with decency, a good heart & a sound mind would do, these became his own beliefs. He is a proud feminist & now uses his male privilege to be an ally & have those uncomfortable conversations with men that used to be like him. Being a feminist of course made its way to our engagement, this was a decision we made together. There was no proposal. When it became clear we wanted to be together for our lifetime, we made this decision & I told him I did not want a proposal. And, I didn't want an engagement ring bc I don't believe in the capitalist lie that his love is demonstrated by buying an overpriced object. Growing up working class, it didn't make sense to me to spend that much money on 1 thing that only I would use. And, this didn't fit with my values of social justice. When he told some of his friends this, they actually thought it was great 😅. Let's all just allow ourselves freedom from rigid gender norms & capitalist, white cishetero patriarchal ideals that don't fit who we are. We'd be much more free & at peace. Another fact about us is that my Dr. name is my name only, bc I earned it not him🙌🏼. And, our family name is a combo of both bc we believe in equality & our child is biracial & his name should represent that. So that is some of us, my love & I💖🙏🏼🌌. Love is patient, love is kind, love fights the power! ✊🏼😅✊🏼 Dr. Rosales Meza #DrRosalesMeza

so excited to be staying here for the first time in February! 🌴☀️🌊🦜🌺 is it wrong to have a dole whip at breakfast, lunch, AND dinner? 🍍
Stage 3: inking. Now that I have completed drawing the design with pencil it's time to start inking it which is basically to go over the line with a black pen. I do it slowly as I look for any imperfections I want to fix. Some imperfections I keep and some must go so those are the ones that I fix. I think a couple more nights and I'll be finished with the inking. Yay!!
Most people don't know they're a prisoner.....deep down in their souls. To what? Their human desires. Their flesh. Their sins. Pride, greed, lust, envy, intoxication, wrath, and laziness poison the human heart and cause people to stop living a truly happy life. Truly understand what all of them mean. Realize how you can overcome them (ask if you need help). What would it be like if you can free your soul from everything that holds it down and truly comprehend who you really are? Know thyself.
🤩🤩Swipe all the way to the end...
Our last release of the Spring range is stunning. This style has been taken from a set i did that everyone loved...so i hope you love this set as well. Diamond engagement ring with the spear and tanoa leg edges, combined with the shark teeth wedding rings. Then add for the mens band the previous image to complete a 4 piece set.
I hope you have enjoyed the new range as much as i did designing them - keep an eye out on the website in the coming weeks...thanks so much for everyones ongoing support. #weddingrings#bridal#islandstyle#polynesian#nesiancreations
