What Makes You Happy Today?

Adult Time Five days. That is what is in the way of me seeing Mumford and Sons in concert. A special night early in dating Sean, I shared the band with him. He fell in love. With me and the band, but probably the band first. Mumford has a special significance for us, and we can’t wait to see them in concert next week.

Today is also the start of a kid-free weekend with Sean. We love time with our kids, but also enjoy our alone time. Quiet weekend mornings, running together, dinner out with friends tonight and alone tomorrow, and a lot of free time to do what we like.

It’s still winter, many in the east are preparing for a storm, and it looks dreary here in D.C. But there’s always an opportunity to feel good about life, activities planned, the weekend arriving, and more.

Today I share two things that make me happy on this cold January day: a weekend alone with Sean and Mumford and Sons concert.

Tell me: what makes you happy today?

To help kick off the weekend, here’s Mumford and Sons “Roll Away Your Stone:”

    #1 It’s Friday
    #2 I too have a kid-free weekend to spend with my s.o.

    That’s all I need for the moment. Not sure what we’ll do but we both are looking forward to the time together.

    Thanks for sharing the song!

    It sounds like we will both be having a great weekend. Enjoy!

    I’m happy because we’re far enough south to not get hit by the huge storm. And I get to travel (albeit down the road to DC) in two days. I don’t care where I am–sleeping alone in a hotel room always relaxes me.

    Really looking forward to being snowed in with my love with good food, movies and great company for a few days! :) Have an *awesome* time seeing Mumford & Sons soon!

    I miss being snowed in. I don’t think it will happen for us this winter. Enjoy the time!

    I LOVE Mumford and Sons but have never gotten to go to a concert! How fun! Today I am happy with simple things, using my new Keurig, a rainy day at home with my son, and getting ready for my sister to come visit tomorrow…she lives in DC, too. Enjoy your weekend!

    Mumford + BF = Happy You! I can related. Mumford has become my favorite cycling music for some reason… they get on a run, so do I!
