For the past few years I got the idea that I had to own a pair of pearl earrings. I always felt that they looked classy and elegant and would help add to my wardrobe. I just couldn’t bring myself to spend the money on them since there are so many other things that seem to take precedence. I still thought about them and could picture them on my ears. One day I got a postcard in the mail from a jewelry store stating “Happy Anniversary, Bring in this card for your free pair of pearl earrings to celebrate” I still couldn’t believe it. What was the catch? A couple weeks later I went to the mall, took in my card and presented it to the salesman. He wished me Happy Anniversary and handed me a red velvet bag with a pair of beautiful white pearls. As I walked out the door I couldn’t be more excited. They were finally on my ears…no catch, no sales pitch. Just a “Smile & Happy Anniversary”.
