Who would have thought that a purple leather GUESS watch would mean so much to me. It is not necessarily the watch but the person that gave me the watch.
He picked me up and blind folded me. I asked where we were going and he said it was a surprise. After driving 10 minutes, we arrived at our location. Milestone's Restaurant. We entered and I was greeted by 25 of my closest friends. It was my surprise twenty-first birthday party.
With my nearest and dearest friends we dined the night away. It was over cool ( yes over cool) that he after meeting me for a just a few months knew who to invite to this dinner, figured out how to contact him and had ALL of them seated at this dinner right on time. He was paying attention. He still pays attention. At the end of the dinner, he presented me with a gift bag. In it, was a watch. Purple leather with leopard print band. It was different and looked more like a bracelet than a watch. I fell in love as GUESS was all the rage at that time. He explained that he searched all of Ontario for this version of the watch because it was purple, my favourite colour.
Since then, my husband has given me many other gifts. Some more expensive, some less expensive. Many invaluable. But the GUESS watch was special because it came from him and from his heart.
