I paid a visit Monday afternoon to Vasilow’s. That’s my go-to, old-fashioned, tin ceiling candy store in Hudson, NY and yearly Valentine’s Day provisioner. I was trying to get a jump on the holiday not because I feared a run on their homemade milk and…

I wake up at three, after tossing and turning in the sea of pillows and soft cotton blankets. David lies next to me, naked and wrapped in a sheet. We have two distinct bed cover preferences. I prefer no top sheet.
