“By Day 7, I had decided to avoid Whole Foods, which reminded me of every mistake, missed connection and lost chance I’d ever had in my life.”

Felice Neal was in the checkout line at Whole Foods when she dropped her sweet potato. A handsome customer behind her said, “I think this is yours.” Felice was smitten.

Felice believes this meet-cute was fate — and it opened her up to new ways of looking for love in a city full of millions of strangers.

Then, Jessica Strange shares her story about losing her husband, and selling the house they had lived in with their children. These days, she looks at photos of their old home on Zillow. Even though the rooms look different now, she finds solace in them. “I picture us in these spaces loving, living, fighting, making up, making out, raising our babies,” she wrote in her Tiny Love Story.

Today’s essay was written by Felice Neals and read by Shayna Small. The Tiny Love Story was written and read by Jessica Strange.
