9:09am. A quick stop at Starbucks between drop-off and Physique 57 class. There's a free table. A sign. I decide to sit, to whip up a quick blog post. Something short and sweet to honor the day. I pull out my laptop and two things come with it.
The book: The Lover's Dictionary, a novel by David Levithan.
The card: Be Mine! scribbled on an old school cassette tape. Inside, words that I won't share here.
Both are from Husband. He must have slipped them in my bag this morning as we were wrangling the sugar-soaked trio (what? no chocolate covered cheerios and pink donuts in your house this morning?)
I curate a little photo of these items. Add the little green heart that says LOVE BUG that the girls slapped affectionately on my bag before school.
I stand and snap away. Capture a shot. To remember.
And I smile.
Husband and my Girls - I love you too. Happy Candy Day!
How will you celebrate today? Are you more of a chocolate or gummy candy person? What's your all-time favorite candy? Are you a fan of little surprises or grand gestures?
