Tickled pink - a Valentine's suprise

Dave and I don't make a huge deal about Valentines. We exchange gifts, but they are generally just small token (mostly candy). We try to get out for dinner if we can (usually not on the day though - too busy in the restaurants!) and I have a strict no flowers policy (first, they are overpriced, and second, Rocky just eats them).

I usually try to knit him something and he loads me up with chocolate. You all know how my half of that plan went this year (and the vote is unanimous - scarf will be put away for Christmas)... and when Dave got home from work tonight, I was handed the traditional bag of chocolate (oddly enough... all eggs... mini eggs, creme eggs....) but there was something else in there...
A little velvet box! Any one who knows me, knows I love little velvet boxes. And what was inside....?
Normally when Dave gets me jewelry, it's usually something I've pointed out to him. But these he got all on his own. I didn't even hint about a Valentine's gift. In fact, neither of us even brought up the day until Wednesday when I asked him if he wanted anything special for dinner on Friday.

And what makes this even better was his comment of "You didn't have any that colour." Nothing is more romantic than a man who notices things like that!

Well done Dave! No candy here; but I am seriously giving up the sugar, well, most of it anyway.
It's a lovely necklace.
