“But I’m curious. Why didn’t you change Capone’s name?” “Because I love him for who he is, the good parts and the not so good parts. I don’t want to change a thing about him. Not even his name. That’s how it is when you truly love someone. You accept them, faults and all.”
Abigail Drake, Love, Chocolate, and a Dog Named Al Capone

“Glitter is like herpes, once it's on you, it's almost impossible to get rid of.”
Abigail Drake, Rebel Without a Claus

“Revenge is a dish best served cold. So is ice cream.”
Abigail Drake, The Enchanted Garden Cafe
