Romancing the Stone

I have never been a frou-frou kinda girl.
I don’t like malls. I don’t like to shop.
My name and fashion are never mentioned favorably in the same sentence.
I’ve had the same hair cut since the seventh grade.
I’m not up on the latest jewelry trends, but I do think diamonds are very pretty.
I even have a couple.
magnum and sheldon
I will confess, however, there is a stone I absolutely love.
The stone itself is not rare, but the shape is different from most.
I’m thankful that my husband doesn’t mind me indulging in this one pleasure.
And even encourages me to bring them home when I find one.
That’s why he’s been my Valentine for the last thirty-two years.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
