-I had a lovely afternoon with my husband that ended with him playing the guitar, followed by a movie. Couldn't be better.
-I made my bed this morning (THANK YOU, Gretchen Rubin. Do you know that the author of the Happiness Project says you'll have more happiness if you make your bed each day? Believe her. Because it's true. :)
