Chocolate Milk and Jelly Donut - A Love Story





Our Love Story started 48 years ago in a Manhattan office building were I first met the love of my life. We worked in the same data processing department several hundred feet from one another, separated by a long hallway and a glass partition. Each day at around 9am a coffee cart arrived with miscellaneous breakfast items. My daily choice was a chocolate milk and a jelly donut...I know, I know...don’t judge! That is where I saw Joyce, a blue eyed blond beauty who was waiting to select an item from the cart.




Love at first sight may be a term that is often used, but the first thing that came to my mind when I saw Joyce was that she was way out of my league. A beautiful woman like that would be a dream come true for me!

I asked around to several of her co-workers and low and behold she was interested in meeting with me! I finally worked up the courage to speak with her and we decided to meet on the weekend. I purchased Broadway tickets and made dinner reservations not leaving anything to chance and making the best impression that I could.


We sat at dinner and learned so much about one another that it was like we knew each other forever! Joyce lived in central New Jersey and we continued to talk for the next hour and a half as I drove her home.


After I dropped her off and I drove back home, all I could think about was that after all these years, I knew that she was the one. The woman I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.

We were married one year later on April 20, 1974 and we have two amazing children and three incredible grandchildren.


A chocolate milk and jelly donut daily ritual allowed me to meet the woman of my dreams and today we celebrate 48 wonderful years together.


Happy Anniversary Sweetie 💕
