My prince arrives........

I've been 'on island', as the locals say, for 10 days now.  Enjoying my alone time...basking in solitude and order.  Everything in it's place....time is mine to spend freely.
My exhale has been long and sweet.
And today, my prince arrives.

So..... little lipstick ......

an earring........some eyeliner......

yep....I'm ready......

His flight was delayed 5 hours....but finally there he is!

oh my goodness!  He brings a gift for me!  

Wow!   A fantastic crystal geode ring in an intense midnight blue color.


and earrings too!   Midnite blue capice shells, trimmed in silver.  Wow!

My prince is home....and the full moon rises.
We will celebrate our 42 year wedding anniversary on February 12th.

Marilyn, I was envying you 10 days of alone time...must admit I was a little green over that. LOL
Then I read on and saw parts of your lovely face getting ready for your prince.
He is indeed a prince bringing a lovely present to his bride of 42 year. Congratulations!!!
