Courtship: An Early Birthday Gift

During Aaron's visit, he wanted to give Tessa her birthday gift, even though the big day is next month. (For background see I Got Flowers!!) We had a gift opening ceremony his first night in town with plenty of onlookers to "ooohhhhh" and "aaaaahhhhhhh" as she opened the mysterious box.








It was a beautiful aqua marine necklace! Obviously, Tessa was thrilled!

Part of the benefit of courtship is that a gift opening like this can be an innocent 'first' in the lives of those courting, making it a special moment of joy.

I can't figure out how to post with just my name. So I stole Eric's account. :) He gave permission, though.
