Heart of Gold

One Valentine’s Day, many, many, many years ago, I received this little gold heart pendant from my father as a gift.

Vintage Gold Heart Pendant

Despite its age, I am certain that the only true value it holds is one of deep and loving sentiment. Sometimes the simplest gift can have the biggest impact on the recipient. Valentines don’t have to be costly and extravagant to have lasting meaning, as long as they are presented with love.

Some hearts of gold are simple and sweet

It really doesn’t matter what you choose for your Valentine, as long as it is presented from your heart of gold, and then it, too, will be treasured for a lifetime. Have a happy Valentine’s week, everyone! Susan
