Valentine's day is probably a jeweler's favorite holiday next to Christmas and Mothers Day.
Yes, I am a girl who does love her bling. Especially earrings. I have friends who call me an earring slut and it's a label I wear proudly. However believe it or not it is not my favorite Valentine gift. SHHH, be sure my husband doesn't see that.
My husband and I met on a blind date One of the reasons I agreed to go out with him was he offered to take me for Chinese food. It has become our go-to meal for celebrations.
What would my favorite date night include, beside Chinese food and maybe some wine? Movies, specifically old movies from the 30's and 40's. I was born well after most of these were made but I spent many hours watching them with my mother. They influenced in some way the heroes I create even today.
Luckily my husband enjoys them as well. While enjoying dumplings and maybe twice-cooked beef or sesame chicken we would watch The Thin Man with William Powell, Random Harvest with Ronald Coleman or my all time favorite movie Casablanca with Humphrey Bogart. There is also my more modern favorites, anything with Hugh Jackman or Colin Firth. Although my husband does have a limit on the number of times he will watch Pride and Prejudice with me. I guess love only goes so far.
