    Hi, everyone.

    I've been inactive on Pearl-Guide for most of the year, partly because I didn't want my pearl shopping to escalate. Apparently, that strategy doesn't work.

    Like an expectant mom, it took me nine months to finally have my pearl set--and I did it myself!

    Without Alana by his side, it looks like Kevin is too busy to post his observations on Pearl Guide.

    Of course, now that I've calmed down, I realize my photos are so bad. But thanks for sharing my exhilaration.
