  • Unexpected Love

    Started the year manifesting love and success
    I had my share of failed relationships
    So finding love in 2023 came unexpectedly
    Our 1st official date just so happened to fall
    On my mom’s death anniversary
    What a hectic day
    After my hair appointment
    We went to the cemetery to visit my mom
    How different that was
    I’ve never taken anyone to visit my mom’s grave
    If my mom was alive
    She would have so many questions
    So it was only right
    A dinner reservation at Carmine’s
    Because we both love Italian food
    The rain couldn’t put a damper on our mood
    Even though my silk press became frizzy
    We took pictures to capture the night
    Along the time square bright lights
    Honestly that had to be the overall best day of 2023
    As the month of June is often bittersweet to me
    That day I forgot about the past pain that plagued my mind
    Instead I celebrated new beginnings
    And toasted to a brand new love that would continue to shine!

    • This is a compelling piece. I love how you wrapped a day full of emotion into perfect words. I felt that emotion of the love you experienced at same time as you were experiencing grief. Thank you for sharing this with our community. I would love to see more of your writing. LeahLives

    • Tracy! This is beautiful. I do not doubt that your mom was watching over you on this day. In fact, I think she had it planned :). And I love Carmine’s too! My dad used to take me to the one on the upper west side when I was little. Nothing but happy memories from there. Thank you for sharing and congrats on finding love. <3 Lauren
