It’s Valentine’s Day, which seemed like a good day to share a quick playlist of relationship goals. How about you, dear reader? What songs describe your relationship goals?
What a year. It’s pretty easy to look at 2016 as a year full of doom and gloom (a super partisan and frustrating election cycle with a terrible outcome, many deaths of cultural and scientific icons, increasing tensions all over the globe, et cetera… the list goes on for a while), but there’ve also been some really good things, too.
