Yesterday was a great day. I was productive, I hand-delivered some earrings to 2 customers, Pat & I had our Christmas... but the icing on the cake was the charming fellow who stopped me in the street to tell me I was beautiful!

This story deserves telling.

I was walking down the street to meet up with one of my customers, when I heard a car honk the horn. I wasn't sure what it was about, but I did notice a black car with the window rolled down pull into the driveway of an apartment building. I didn't recognize the car, so I continued on my way.

Well, wouldn't you know it, the guy drove around the block & stopped beside me to say hi. He was smiling & held his hand out the window to shake mine. Curious, I figured the guy deserved at least a hello. He introduced himself & said he had to stop me to tell me I was beautiful instead of just going home & regretting it forever.
"With that hat, you look like you walked out of a magazine."

Seriously. Direct quote.

Needless to say, I was flattered.

I declined his number & he said to tell Pat that he was a very lucky man. Pat better step up his game though - charm like that is hard to resist!
