What's Making Me Happy: February 14

Happy Valentine's Day! I have to say that. It's required. It's Friday, the day I do these WMMH posts, and V-Day happens to fall on a Friday this year, so I just ... I gotta. Right?

Do you love V-Day? It's never been a thing for me, really. I have nothing against it, it's just not the day that the commercials tell me it should be, and as far as I can tell, everyone on the planet (who is not trying to sell something) agrees.


I decided this year to take Cupid by the horns. (Erm.) I have some friends who have not yet met and need to meet, and one thing we all have in common is that our husbands can't tell February 14 from July 14 or any other 14. So I've invited these friends and their families over for a casual unromantic dinner at our house, and even the planning of it involved some hilarity regarding all the canceled plans. ("WELL. He WAS going to fly me to PARIS for a moonlight dinner on the Seine with a string quartet but if you INSIST we'll come over to your house instead.") So I am happy because we are going to have so much fun tonight.

A few other things:

These black swans feeding their koi pals.

Watching this movie with my boy.

This principal letting the kids know it's a snow day.

What does the fox say? Now we know. Bonus: serious, serious squee.

This guy.

Happy Friday, y'all!

Post-Script/Update: I feel I should add that my husband, whom I might have denigrated slightly here, did end up having a dozen red roses delivered to me this morning. Dawwww.


  1. I can just imagine the warm conviviality at your place tonight, Stephish. You have the best house and you are the best host.


    1. Aww, thank you Suze! I wish you could be here, too.
