The Darling Man returned from an overseas business trip and brought home the following surprise for me: a sweet little Swarovski rose pink heart on a cord. It was presented to me over merienda in a dark blue box complete with a warranty card. I was speechless. Pleased. And touched.

TDM knows I don’t wear a lot of bling, mostly character pieces or family heirlooms. This was perfect, because I could wear it every day if I chose. I honestly thought he would choose a memory card or some useful usb tech gadget, since he knows that I usually travel like some techie girl scout with a little pack of peripherals along with an ASUS eee in my handbag. This choice of gift makes me glad he thinks of me beyond my geekiness, in a most tender way.

Thank you, sweetie.
