L O V E  I S . . .

+ hot, creamy coffee drank along the shores of Lake Michigan on a first date

+ antipasti eaten on the floor on a second date

+ a dutch baby coma for two

+ coming home from work to braided challah fresh from the oven

+ driving 143 miles for puffy tacos

+ hanging a Peking duck in the shower

+ an incredible wine [like that ’95 Barolo for $3.99!]

+ homemade pizza every which way

+ a cribbage battle to decide meals

+ trying new things

+ simply fireworks when you know you’ve found the person you’re going to spend a lifetime with…

… and love is wanting that life to begin as soon as possible
