V-Day MixTape: Side B “Yay! Love!”

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and you’re in love. Or maybe you’re just in “lurve” (love without the O…a precursor to the big 4 letter proclamation. I fall in lurve like twice a day).
Maybe, you’ve just got a giant heart and enjoy Valentine’s Day even though you’re single.
Maybe you’re one of those permanent happy people who confuse me.
In any case, this holiday does not fill you with dread. It does not fill you with sadness or the constant need to subdue your emotions with sugar.
It’s a nice day. A pretty day. A teddy bear holding a chocolate heart kind of day (…too much?).
It’s the day for this type of mix.
