My 16 year old heart leapt for joy at remembering that 8 tracks exists, and then created a playlist of lovely songs. Take a listen if you’d like.

Personally I have always been a lover of Valentine’s day. It always makes me think of my dad giving my sister and I a card and a little present/treat every year (long before there were any hunky teenage dudes in the picture, or the ol’ husband that I picked up along the way). Is it commercialized? Shit yeah. But knowing that doesn’t make me any less thankful for a day when everyone feels obligated to tell those they love that they love them. I don’t think it happens enough. So love between couples, parents, siblings, friends, pets…..all of it. Today’s the day. Don’t forget to spread some love somewhere-in spite of massive commercialization. Maybe don’t buy the boxed chocolates or the weird out-of-season flowers. How about a nice home cooked meal, or a card you made yourself?

Happy V Day friends.
