Happy Valentine’s Day! (plus I’m on Clementine Daily!)

via my instagram I know a bunch of people aren’t fans of today- some think it’s overly commercialized, puts unrealistic expectations of couples to be overly romantic, and as for all my single ladies out there (and guys) it can pretty much make you feel like you’re all by your lonesome.
