another love of mine gave me this beautiful orchid flower arrangement for valentine's day (i've mentioned many a time that i don't like roses. well, i like roses, but in a garden. in a vase they can be rather cliche):

gotta love february. though i'm nonetheless impatiently waiting for mid march so i can hear from grad schools!
