I showed the owner of the Co. I work for this picture and she loved it, printed it out 8x10 and got a mere $10. However, this opened the door, and over a short time she purchased another $130-worth, and she met my girlfriend at the time and loved the love she saw we shared. Less than a year later, she gave me an $8,000 full carat perfect diamond for me to put in an engagement ring for my girl! So if it weren't for this picture, I definitely wouldn't be getting married next year! $8,000 1ct!

Notes: It was 1am, and my sweetie was away for the weekend; I was feeling creative, and I held a strawberry up and turned it, and saw a heart within it. I cut it out to show what I saw, shot it, editied, and sent it as a picture message to her, which she got in the morning. :)
