10 Love Songs For This February

Monday, February 12, 2018

In honor of the multifaceted and often trauma-inducing concept that is l'amour, not to mention the now apparently global event that is Saint Valentine's Day; I present a short 'n sweet playlist of charming with a hint of nostalgia tunes.




Pick a starting point, press play, and go stroll hand in hand with someone (or not).Sob. Laugh. Love. You're welcome.
