I'd kiss you here because...  We finally got the storm we had hoped for.  It was a real snow day.  It was very, very windy, but we love an adventure, so, out we went.  We made fresh snow tracks, took an abbreviated version of our "park walk" and headed for some hot chocolate and breakfast at the coffee shop in the neighborhood.  We kissed a bunch of times mostly because of the adrenalin rush we had from maneuvering the snowy winds.  You know that feeling when you realize you were more alone than normal, in whipping wind and freezing cold, you are sweating from the walk and you walk into the cozy coffee shop?  It's like "you made it" and you are all giddy from the adventure.  Yea, we kissed.  It was a good, good morning.    
       
     
 I'd kiss you here because...  First, it's a library during the day and nothing makes me happier than that, than a library at night.  I remember being here with close friends who were staying at the hotel.  I had come over for dinner with them. I hadn't see my friends in a while, we took a group picture and I posted it.  You and I hadn't met, but you complimented me on the picture.  I was shocked, but also thought it was very nice. I was too shy to write back immediately, but later I thanked you when I realized it was rude to not say thank-you.  Later, we talked about that night and the reason I was at the hotel.  I told you we watched the Tony's and ordered room service - the chicken for two is unreal.  It would be my great joy and pleasure to re-visit this spot, with you.  We can kiss before dinner, but we are having the chicken.  We have talked about it too much at this point. 
       
     
 I'd kiss you here because....  We would be revisiting a kiss and that place.  I was driving and pulled over spontaneously.  It was super serene, we were on our way back home after a much needed long weekend.  We hopped out real quick to steal a moment of quiet on the way back home.  We walked through the woods to get close to the water.  The sun was almost down, it was cold, we were hugging and listening to the air in the woods.  You know that sound.  You kissed my neck.  It was nice.  
       
     
 I'd kiss you here because...  We did and we will, every single time we pass 120 and a half.  How could we just pass a door with a 1/2 on it without stopping and talking about it and saying how sweet that door is?  It was a surprise as we were on our way to the subway on a coldish day.  It was a tiny little bright spot that made us smile, and kiss.  
       
     
 I'd kiss you here because....  It was the first time we ever went to our getaway city beach during February.  It was an unseasonably warm day, the winds were strong even if half gray skies.  The view back to the city was blue.  We were mentally transported, very alone on a beach that is typically crowded during the summer.  We sat for a while, talked for a long time and were quiet for as long, if not longer.  A much needed reprieve.  We left, calm-minded and inspired, full of love.  
       
     
 I'd kiss you here because....  Pink was commandeering the visual aspect of our conversations.  We could not get away from talking about pink, or seeing it.  You know I only like pink in certain ways.  You had sent me some paintings of yours that were pink and grey.  I loved them and I told you that you were making me love pink.  There I was, walking down 10th avenue after a gallery visit and I see this wall.  I texted you this picture immediately.  It very much reminded me of your painting.  I told you we were going to make a book of your pink paintings and my pink pictures.  I would have absolutely kissed you here!
       
     
 I'd kiss you here because....  Pink wouldn't stop.  As much as we were ignoring "pink" in all things we were seeing and trying to shift the conversation, I finally said, we will move from it when we are ready.  So, pink had a long moment between us.  I laughed when my friend ordered this drink and it looked beautiful on the pale yellow tabletop.  I took a picture for you, while they asked me what I was doing.   You were the only person who would understand this picture.  Had you walked through the door, I know I would have showed you this drink, or ordered one for you so you could see it's perfect pink color, and...we would have kissed.  
       
     
 I'd kiss you here because....  We were on our way to see a friend uptown.  We got on the wrong train (my fault) that allowed us to cruise through here.  Usually we are here during the day, and this was the first time we were together here at night.  It's kind of hard not to photograph this spot, in general, but at night, it is something else, completely stunning.  I kind of needed to see something pretty since we were on a little journey that was about to be longer than we expected.  You hugged me, kissed me too, since I was a little upset about misdirecting us.  It was sweet and needed.  Thank you.     
       
     
 i'd kiss you here because....  Since we have known each other, we have talked about food, but certain types of food.  Pizza is one of those foods.  We talk about our favorite pizza places, stories of going there with our friends before we ever met, we send each other articles about pizza, we DM each other pizza pics from instagram.  Pizza love is NOT lost on us.  Joe's is my favorite.  One day you sent me a picture from there, and I lost it, all in fun and laughter!  We have YET to go there together, but we will.  Now, it is almost a running joke, every time we pass a Joe's AND have a slice, we text each other a picture and the laughing starts.  We are definitely, first having pizza at Joe's, the one on Carmine, then there will be kissing.
       
     
 I'd kiss you here because...  Out of the blue, you sent me a picture of you and your dog.  I was walking and thinking about you, your dog, my dogs and all the dogs that have been close to me in my life.  It was a beautiful day, my mind was filled with so many thoughts.  You and dogs.  I was on an emotional overload as a result of all of that when I saw and watched a plane make a huge arc over SoHo during an incredibly beautiful winter day.  I stopped in my tracks.  I will forever remember the picture of you and your dog, everything that ran through my head while I was walking around and arrived at this spot.  It is forever dear and sweet to me.  We need to go back there and kiss.  Please.  
       
     
 I'd kiss you here because....  First, I want to be on the Highline kissing in that glass frame.  Amazing kissing picture.  Second, we had gone to see two women who were painting a Sol Lewitt at a school where your friend works.  The school overlooks the Highline.  One night, I had left a meeting and took the Highline walk downtown, I passed the frame.  The next thing I know, I see the Sol Lewitt painting in the school.  I took a picture and sent it to you.  It looked great from the Highline at night. So did the frame.  All too sweet.  Future kissing memories to be created.
       
     
 I'd kiss you here because...  I woke up one morning and thinking about the flowers blooming in the winter.  The blooms were premature and it had gotten extremely cold over night.  I wondered what was going to happen to the flowers given the overnight freeze.  I walked with you to the subway, you indulged me in a diversion to go see the flowers.  This sweet little flower was completely frozen.  We touched it to see.  You are very sweet to indulge me in my curiosities, I thanked you, you kissed me.    
       
     
 I'd kiss you here because....  It reminded me of when we were in Vancouver visiting our friends.  We took very long walks along the Stanley Park Seawall.  One of the days we saw stone stacking art on the beach.  I was captivated and drawn immediately to them.  You followed me, of course.  I always tell you how I could stack stones for hours.  Then, one day on our dog walk in the park, there were stacked stones.  It was very, very sweet to see.  We agreed we would do this one weekend morning as we have our tea and coffee.  This made me so happy, and we are kissing, as soon as we finish a good stack.  
       
     
 I'd kiss you here because....  The light + loose-leaf tea + royal blue +you and me + Dimes for a weekday breakfast + kidney shaped table for two with bench seat = kissing.  It's as simple as that.
       
     
 I'd kiss you here because....  One Halloween night a long time ago I had a nickname.  Cherry was part of the name, consistent with the costume, my only adult Halloween costume.  I told you about this costume and every since then you called me Cherry.  It is always laughter when we see a cherry anywhere.  Every time I get out of the subway at Delancey street I text you this picture.  We need to go kiss there!  
       
     
 I'd kiss you here because...  I love some rusty outdoor furniture, you do too.  All I wanted to do was sit on that bench and be transported to a summer day with you, anywhere. Location doesn't even matter.  Just the idea of a summer weekend luring my dreams.  All I said to you was:  I can't wait for summer.  You hugged me, we kissed and kept walking.      
       
     
 I'd kiss you here because....  Long before I met you, but we were both living and working in New York, I would go to Florent with my friends from work.  It was always the much needed reprieve, and a good time was had by all.  I have the best memories from there.  I miss Florent, and would love to go back in time with you now and have a dinner there.  I love the idea of time travel.  I don't usually spend too much time living in the past, but every now and then, when I think of taking a trip back in time with you, this would be one of the places I would take you.  Love and kisses.  
       
     
 I'd kiss you here because....  It was one of the amazing weekends in February where we got little glimpses of spring.  We had taken a drive out to the beach with the dogs, came back and took a little nap.  When we got up I wanted some mint tea, I was a little sick.  We walked to the cafe as the sun was starting to set, then we headed down to the park.  We sat on top of the picnic tables and watched the sunset.  Yes, we kissed.  Of course.  Lovely Saturday.

We finally got the storm we had hoped for.  It was a real snow day.  It was very, very windy, but we love an adventure, so, out we went.  We made fresh snow tracks, took an abbreviated version of our "park walk" and headed for some hot chocolate and breakfast at the coffee shop in the neighborhood.  We kissed a bunch of times mostly because of the adrenalin rush we had from maneuvering the snowy winds.  You know that feeling when you realize you were more alone than normal, in whipping wind and freezing cold, you are sweating from the walk and you walk into the cozy coffee shop?  It's like "you made it" and you are all giddy from the adventure.  Yea, we kissed.  It was a good, good morning.

 I'd kiss you here because....  We would be revisiting a kiss and that place.  I was driving and pulled over spontaneously.  It was super serene, we were on our way back home after a much needed long weekend.  We hopped out real quick to steal a moment of quiet on the way back home.  We walked through the woods to get close to the water.  The sun was almost down, it was cold, we were hugging and listening to the air in the woods.  You know that sound.  You kissed my neck.  It was nice.

 I'd kiss you here because...  We did and we will, every single time we pass 120 and a half.  How could we just pass a door with a 1/2 on it without stopping and talking about it and saying how sweet that door is?  It was a surprise as we were on our way to the subway on a coldish day.  It was a tiny little bright spot that made us smile, and kiss.

 I'd kiss you here because...  I woke up one morning and thinking about the flowers blooming in the winter.  The blooms were premature and it had gotten extremely cold over night.  I wondered what was going to happen to the flowers given the overnight freeze.  I walked with you to the subway, you indulged me in a diversion to go see the flowers.  This sweet little flower was completely frozen.  We touched it to see.  You are very sweet to indulge me in my curiosities, I thanked you, you kissed me.

 I'd kiss you here because....  One Halloween night a long time ago I had a nickname.  Cherry was part of the name, consistent with the costume, my only adult Halloween costume.  I told you about this costume and every since then you called me Cherry.  It is always laughter when we see a cherry anywhere.  Every time I get out of the subway at Delancey street I text you this picture.  We need to go kiss there!

 I'd kiss you here because....  Long before I met you, but we were both living and working in New York, I would go to Florent with my friends from work.  It was always the much needed reprieve, and a good time was had by all.  I have the best memories from there.  I miss Florent, and would love to go back in time with you now and have a dinner there.  I love the idea of time travel.  I don't usually spend too much time living in the past, but every now and then, when I think of taking a trip back in time with you, this would be one of the places I would take you.  Love and kisses.

 I'd kiss you here because....  It was one of the amazing weekends in February where we got little glimpses of spring.  We had taken a drive out to the beach with the dogs, came back and took a little nap.  When we got up I wanted some mint tea, I was a little sick.  We walked to the cafe as the sun was starting to set, then we headed down to the park.  We sat on top of the picnic tables and watched the sunset.  Yes, we kissed.  Of course.  Lovely Saturday.
