If you’ve been in a relationship for a while, you’ll appreciate these humorous (and true!) gifts for Valentine’s Day. Here are some favorites.
Gold is making a comeback. And, I can’t get enough. This coming from the girl who despised yellow gold in the 8o’s and 90’s. Rose gold has earned a special place in my heart. I’m not the only one.
