Happy Valentine's Day!

Today has been great.  My students turned in their first paper, I gave a lecture, and I went to Zumba this evening.  I am exhausted and enjoying V-Day with the one man in my life: Jackson, my dog.  He's a good date too: he cuddles, gives good kisses, and doesn't mind that I don't share my chocolates with him.
I love the idea of Valentine's Day.  I think that designating a day to celebrate the fact that people can fall in love is wonderful.  Historically, the choice to fall in love and find a life partner based on mutual affection is relatively new, only about 200 years old. 

I hope everyone is spending the day with someone they love, be they with two legs or four.
