when you say the word love tell me, does your tongue strike your incisors like a mallet to a drum? does it drop in transition and later then assume a transverse position as it settles in the womb? does your mouth open up like a butterfly cocoon or a dragon fruit flower, blowing kisses to the moon? do you bite your lower lip as if love could be consumed with a frication between petals where love begins to bloom?
How best to express your love? Locally, of course—with these sweet to saucy gifts from around the Hudson Valley. Artisanal, alcoholic, silken, studded or waxen (really), chocolate or blooming, you’ll find it here.
