  1. “I don’t want to give the world a guy that can’t iron his own shirt,” she said.   “I won’t give your future wife a husband who won’t do the dishes,” she said. My mom took extreme pride in raising my sister and me to be independent. We grew up unaware of traditional gender roles that …

  2. In lieu of International Women’s Day, Women’s History Month and our W&D March theme: Women Who #Werk – we are tooting our horns to honor and celebrate women everywhere. There’s so much to celebrate about womanhood, but this year I’m particularly thankful for the women who have helped reinspire and reinvigorate my love for Wit & Delight: …

  3. When I first brought our group of contributors together to pitch this new content idea for W&D, my hope was we would create a broader set of experiences for readers to enjoy. I thought about how we could take the best of our current content and continue to evolve what’s working. The framework looked like this: …

  4. March madness, indeed! Buckle up, buttercups, March is going to be a wildly reflective ride. Most notably, Venus, planet of art, beauty and love, will be retrograde from March 4th through April 15th. Retrogrades get a bad rap, but don’t fret. Unlike Mercury, which trips, stumbles and falls backward several times a year, lending itself to delayed flights …

  5.   Why, oh why do we watch The Bachelor franchise week after week? Is it so we can have something to talk to our moms about other than politics? Perhaps. Is it so we can live vicariously through skinny people whose dating life is wilder than swiping left or right on their grubby phone screen? Definitely. …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. Joe and I have bad timing. For the four Valentine’s Days we’ve had as a couple, only one of them has been spent together. This year he is on the other side of the globe for work, and I foiled his plans to surprise me with flowers because I’ve become the family’s budget Nazi stickler and inquired …

  8. Now that Bonnie Tyler’s classic slow jam is lodged in your head – not sorry! – it’s time to discover what the stars have in store for us this month. Namely, eclipses. Somehow, in the shortest of all the months, the universe has packed two of 2017’s four eclipses into February. What the what does that mean? …

  9. It’s finally here. The most dramatic blog post in Wit & Delight’s history. Each one of you is here for the right reasons, so I just wanted to steal you for a sec to tell you I can totally see myself falling in love. To show you how much I’ve enjoyed our time together, my friends Kate …

  10. Readers, meet Becky Lang. I’ve followed her on Twitter for years and we were able to work together briefly last year while she was working with local agency, Zeus Jones. Admittedly I was a little nervous to meet one of my favorite Twitter follows; Becky (@leckybang) is bright, funny, and objectively cool with an unabashed interest …

  11. Hey you, what’s your sign? Cliché pick-up line, be damned. Let’s get a little better acquainted with our astrological signs as we start something new here on Wit & Delight. That’s right: horoscopes! So far, 2017 has been – insert heavy sigh – trying. We could all use a little guidance from the stars these days. …

  12. For most of my life, I chased an elusive idea of love. The kind that arrives serendipitously and presents itself with grand gestures. I waited for my modernized white knight to arrive and save me. Save me from what? you may ask. I thought a great love would make everything in life make sense. It would …

  13. Better late than never, here is our January Reading Edit. This month wore us down for many reasons, and media fatigue was one of the biggest culprits. With so much to read about all the changes happening around the world, we found ourselves looking at our sources of our media in a new light. When I …
