The necklace I'm wearing is one I spotted while perusing quaint stands in Maui the year before Darla was born. S. noticed my eyes linger a little longer on this necklace. I'm very cautious about purchases for myself and had no intention of buying anything, or even mentioning it. Unbeknownst to me, S. had been waiting for me to show interest in something and wasted no time sneaking back to the stand to buy it and surprise me with it later.
3 weeks later I surprised him with a positive pregnancy test.
A couple years ago S. bought me real pearls. They are beautiful. However, this is my favorite necklace.
