Hello there!

Welcome to my little corner of the ether. This is where you will find information about my books and musings on life and love in New York City. To stay in the loop about all things ADR...


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.

A book.

A card.

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?
