I spent the afternoon with someone I love today. He is sweet and wise, spiritual and delightfully wicked. His smile is disarming, his laugh hearty and contagious. He’s a wonderful listener, loyal as can be, an engaging conversationalist, and cute as a button.

Some of my favorite moments of the last year have been sitting at a table with this man sharing thoughts over lunch or tea or drinks. We’ve strolled Manhattan neighborhoods, combed through bookstores and gone dancing into the wee hours.

Today we had a leisurely lunch, did some shopping, sat in Starbucks as the rain pelted the sidewalks around Penn Station. It was sooooooo nice. I feel so blessed.

Happy Valentine’s Day to me.
