Like always, Jenny provides us with a wonderful prompt (appearing below, in bold text). And as an extra gift to us on her special anniversary, she's allowing us to add a photo to our submission! My story and photo is below.
Although the traditional gift for a first anniversary is paper...my fabulous, still-semi-newlywed husband decided to shower me with luxurious gifts. He said, "Bea, I know you love the song, String of Pearls, by Glenn Miller, so I bought you a lovely pearl necklace, with matching earrings and bracelet."
I was so excited, I immediately put the necklace around my neck, and before even trying on the other lovely items, began doing my Happy Dance, which in turn, caused my real....well, actually faux pearls, to fall off the string, bouncing and rolling all over the floor.
