Our Mardi Gras was feeling more like Mardi blah, until we woke up to a snowy wonderland this morning. Not into the whole snow thing? We’ll be your sunshine on this cold day—keep reading for smiles, business news, events and jobs in Birmingham.

Happiness is…

🌟More vaccinations for Birmingham residents. See how you can sign up to get yours.

🌟  These baby corgis I came across on Twitter. Prepare to send this video to the group chat. 

🌟  A local TikToker who went viral documenting finding love the “old fashioned way.” Follow along with her journey and hear some advice she gave us for dating during a pandemic.

Show us that cattitude 😼🤳

Does your cat take some hissterical selfies? We launched a local #catcloseupchallenge of our own—with benefits. Post the winning close up shot of your favorite feline on Bham Now’s Instagram.

What will I do? Report on the coolest, buzziest and most interesting people, places and things happening around the state. If it’s not exciting, you’ll make it sound like it is.
Any must-haves? A desire to be in-the-know all the time. Writing skills that border on irreverent (but keep it profesh, ok?). A close relationship with your camera, phone and social media.
